Quote of the Day

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The purpose of life is not to be happy.* It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

 

*I understand what he means by stating that happiness is not our purpose. He is referring to the selfish happiness that comes from self-serving aims. But our purpose is to to be happy in life. We are to find happiness in our usefulness, honorableness, compassion, and in our every effort to make a difference with the  life we have been given. We are to be happy in everything we do to bless others.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

1 year, 85 posts, and 4,797 views later, The Alchemist is still going strong! I’ve been really busy of late, so I haven’t had time to write anything of real substance. But I’m so surprised that I’ve stuck with this blog for so long!

Happy Birthday, Alchemist!!!

RANT!

WHY DON’T PEOPLE JUST RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE? IF IT’S NOT YOURS, DON’T TAKE IT!!! WHERE IS COMMON DECENCY ANYMORE?! I JUST DON’T GET IT!

WHAT ARE PEOPLE TEACHING THEIR CHILDREN?! I SWEAR! I’VE SAID IT BEFORE AND I’LL SAY IT AGAIN! THERE NEEDS TO BE A PARENTING LICENSE BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE AREN’T DOING THEIR JOB AND ARE THEREFORE UNQUALIFIED TO BE RAISING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. WHY ARE YOU HAVING CHILDREN IF YOU’RE NOT GOING TO RAISE THEM PROPERLY?! RAISE YOUR CHILDREN TO RESPECT OTHERS AND RESPECT THEMSELVES! WE DON’T NEED ANYMORE INSENSITIVE NARCISSISTS ROAMING THE EARTH. I THINK THAT NICHE IS OVERPOPULATED!

I.JUST.DON’T.GET.IT.

AND WHERE IS THE GUILT? I MEAN… DON’T YOU FEEL GUILTY WHEN YOU DISRESPECT SOMEONE ELSE? WHEN YOU STEAL FROM THEM? HOW CAN YOU WRITE THAT SO QUICKLY OFF YOUR CONSCIENCE? HOW CAN YOU JUST IGNORE THE HURTFUL CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR ACTIONS?

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, PEOPLE?

I AM SO UPSET WITH PEOPLE. I AM SO FED UP WITH PEOPLE. WHY DON’T MORE PEOPLE CARE ABOUT OTHERS?! WHAT.THE.FREAK.IS.WRONG.WITH.YOU, PEOPLE?! AHH!!

I KNOW I’M NOT THE ONLY RESPECTFUL PERSON. AND I ALSO KNOW I AM NOT PERFECT, BUT AT LEAST I AM TRYING EVERYDAY TO THINK OUTSIDE OF MYSELF, AND THINK NOT ONLY ABOUT THOSE DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO ME, BUT OF THE STRANGERS I ENCOUNTER AS WELL. WHY IS IT THE RUDE ONES STAND OUT SO MUCH MORE THAN THE RIGHTEOUS? WHY CAN’T PEOPLE JUST BE GOOD?! IT’S NOT THAT DIFFICULT! OK, THAT’S A LIE. IT IS DIFFICULT AT TIMES, BUT SO IS ANYTHING THAT CARRIES GREAT REWARD AND SATISFACTION! SO I GUESS I SHOULD BE ASKING WHY EVERYONE IS SO LAZY AND SELFISH! OF COURSE I KNOW THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS, BUT URGGGHHH! I’M JUST SO FRUSTRATED, UPSET, AND DISAPPOINTED! GOD, PLEASE LET TOMORROW BRING ME SOMETHING SPECTACULARLY GOOD!!!

Mark Twain

Find your passion and live it out each day. Years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
