I am in Love!

Posted on January 11, 2012. Filed under: Misc | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I am so totally in love! I want to spend the rest of my life with a certain special somebody. I am 100% sure. I met her almost 2 years ago and we have been dating on and off since then. She is amazing and makes my world go from one day to the next. We are great together and want to share our lives with one another and live life and discover adventures together. We want to do it all, good and bad together and we know that we can help each other out through the tough times. We compliment each other’s qualities and in short we are an amazing pair. We are a super-couple. She is the girl!

I am Back in the Game!

Hello out there to everyone in bloglandia and to all of my readers!

I haven’t written on this blog for a few years, but I have decided to brush off the dust and revive it! I’ve got the passion and drive to get this going again and would love to lead and inspire you as well! Why am I doing this? Because I want change in my life. It isn’t going to happen by itself, so I decided to take the initiative.

Check back here in the next few days as I plan on adding quite a few new posts!

Thanks for reading and best of luck in all your endeavors! Have a great day! 🙂

The Meaning and Purpose of Life

Posted on June 14, 2008. Filed under: Misc | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose of life? What’s your purpose in life? Let’s not get all philosophical here, even though that may be the nature of the subject…

I think the purpose of life is to live and enjoy it and be happy and help others along the way. The purpose of life is determined by each person. You determine your purpose in life. This may or may not be true, but “the truth” is irrelevant. “The truth” may never be known and that doesn’t help any of us live a happy life. I think that it is more important to enjoy life than be concerned about what we think the purpose or meaning of life is.

I didn’t choose to be here; it was not my decision to be born. But I am not going to complain about it. Since I’m here anyways, I might as well make the most of my life while I’m here. That would be better than being miserable my entire life. What I do matters to me, so I’m going to try to enjoy life since it is better than worrying about what “the truth” is and living an empty and unhappy life.

I don’t know the answers to a lot of things, but I know that I want to enjoy life. I don’t know anything about before life or after life, but I have learned a few things about life. Being happy is worth it; being miserable is never worth it. Helping others is a good purpose in life.

So what do you think the purpose of life is? What is your purpose in life?

What Has Happened To Democracy?

Posted on June 8, 2008. Filed under: Misc | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The current state of democracy is an abomination of what democracy means, what it is all about. It is more an elected autocracy where a king or queen is elected for a term to make all the decisions. The government is supposed to serve the people, not the people serving the government. The government cannot exist without the people, period. But it is possible for the people to exist without the government. Think about that.


What Democracy is About:

Democracy isn’t about laying on your couch and getting up to vote every 4 years. Democracy is about citizens’ involvement and autonomy. It is about activism, getting involved at the local, grassroots level. Democracy is about citizens taking an active role in the country, even though manning the couch is easier.


Change:

Governments are bureaucratic. They are not effecient and they are not effective. They spend a lot of resources and don’t get much done. You cannot rely on the government to solve problems or bring change. Change happens on the local level with regular people.

It doesn’t matter who the president is
; what matters is what the people do. People taking action about things they are passionate about is far more effective than any government or president could be.

It is up to the people, you and I, to make the changes we want, not simply vote for whoever promises to bring the change. The people do have a say, but nobody will hear you unless you voice it. Join or start groups and organizations that get involved to take control and make the changes they want.


Get involved:


Take action on matters that you strongly believe in.
Don’t expect or assume that the government will make the change for you; it won’t.

I’m Focusing Outward Now…

Posted on June 5, 2008. Filed under: Misc | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Okay, I totally missed the entire point of having a blog… Well, I got half of it: I was sharing my thoughts and feelings with you, but I wasn’t listening to what you have to say. So from now on, I’m going to focus more on reading and learning than on posting. I’ve got a lot to learn about life and can’t help others unless I learn more.

I am still going to post daily, but I am going to read much, much more.  That’s right.  I’m going to be reading your blog and posting comments.  I am going to read and comment until my eyes and fingers are sore! Your blogs are great and there is so much to learn.  I’m humbled and am just realizing how little I know.

I will try to respond to all of your comments on my blog,  but I may not be able to.  So if you post a comment, know that I appreciate your encouragement very much!

Thanks,

Eric 🙂

Why I Do It

Posted on June 5, 2008. Filed under: Misc | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Thanks everybody who reads and comments on my blog. It is very encouraging for me. Some of you may be wondering why I write this blog.

Well, I do it because it feels good helping others. I do it because of the comments I get and the way people feel when they read my blog. I do it because it is something that I can share with others and hopefully benefit them in some way.

After a little while I began to look at the search phrases people used to find my blog. It broke my heart when I saw the things they searched for. I don’t know anything about these people at all, other than they have problems and want to get their lives on track again. People are looking for answers. People want and need help. Some people feel desperate and out of options, not knowing what to do. There is too much unnecessary pain an suffering in the world. These people do not need to struggle when others can help them. I’ve said it before: Life can be a struggle, but it doesn’t have to be. That’s why I do it.

I am glad to offer hope and inspiration to those who need it and whatever else I can to make other people’s lives better. It is definitely worth it.

Eric
