Living Life To The Fullest In 3 Easy Steps

Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, “Esther, I’d like to ride in that helicopter.” Esther always replied, “I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is fifty dollars — and fifty dollars is fifty dollars.” One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said, “Esther, I’m 85 years old. If I don’t ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.” Esther replied, “Morris that helicopter is fifty dollars — and fifty dollars is fifty dollars.” The pilot overheard the couple and said, “Folks I’ll make you a deal.

We want others to affirm the path we have chosen to follow. In reality we will never receive the affirmation we desire unless we live our life the way they want us to. So I come back to my first question, ”Who are you living your life for?” “I love this quote…”The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide our problems are your own. You do not blame them on anyone or anything. You realize that you control your own destiny.” – Albert Ellis Ahhh, there’s that word “Destiny.” What Do We Want Our Life (Destiny) To Be About? Before we decide to change our life, we better decide what we want our life to be about.
