Man's Search for Meaning

"Our attitude towards what has happened to us in life is the important thing to recognize. Once hopeless, my life is now hope-full, but it did not happen overnight. The last of human freedoms, to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, is to choose one's own way."
-Victor Frankl

    You have to enjoy every moment. How you deal with it is up to the individual. This year has been a real test for my family. If I become overly negative, it will affect the possible good things happening. I believe a lot of life's miseries are caused by our tuies to the materialistic. I know I'm guilty. We can choose how we look at our problems and tragedies and make our own lives better or worse by our attitudes toward them. God Bless. Vince

    So much truth in it.. I've always seen of lets rather say experienced that how you react to things in your life will ultimately determine how things will end up, to grow or remain stagnant is also a choice.. Great blog Kirstie :)

    Our perspectives on life can make a tremendous difference in our capacity to feel happy, Kirstie. This is a great quote! I'm going to copy it and hang it over my computer. These are words I want to remember. Love, Carolyn

    I believe Agape(Unconditional Love) is the one and only precept there is to live by Kirstie. And it holds all of life's lessons to be learned. We can get caught up in our delusions of our own minds, at times, Agape can lead the way back into life again. So happy to hear your life is now hope-filled. Agape, Moses

    Your attitude in life is everything Kristie ... I always project a positive one and it has gotten me very far in my life... from single parenting four sons to marrying my dream man less than one month ago... words of Victor Frankl are quite powerful and wise... once u face any problem with a positive outlook u automaticcaly win... and turing all your negatives into positives by finding the good in every situation... is even better ... thankxxx for this blog..luv..

    I believe Kirstie, that everything that happens to us in life, happens for a reason, there is a lesson to be learned of self, from each experience, even the death of a loved one, although it may not be clear at the time. Each twist and pitfall in my path in this life has led me to the here and now, and I would not change one thing...because it has made me a writer of life.. Constance
