    Since my childhood I have known what I want out of life. I looked at the world around me and decided there were certain things in my environment that I wanted as well as certain things within my environment that I did not want.

    What do you want out of life? I am referring to practical rather than ideological things? I know, we all want world peace, but that's not what I am referring to. I am talking about family, career, income level, lifestyle, property, education, or anything you believe would fall into the categories of Life, Liberty, and YOUR pursuit of happiness?

    What are you doing towards obtaining those goals?

    What is hindering you in your pursuit of those goals?

    What are you doing that are hindering your pursuit of those goals?

    What is your vision of Life, Liberty, and Happiness?






    Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

    Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage

    Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;


    Pro 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

    I would rather ponder the question:

    - What does "life" want out of me -

    To live free from interferrance of others,

    To work as I wish,

    To express myself as I like, to family and the world.

    To step outside my house and not see another house.

    Thank you, I now have all of the above!

    AXE!

    That's great to hear that you have acheived your vision of Life, liberty, and happiness. It is my belief that we can all acheive our vision of life, liberty, and happiness if we put our focus on that vision as opposed to what we think is stopping us....chances are there is nothing stopping us but ourselves.
