I finally figured it out, taken me into my 40’s but it came to me like a bolt of lightning.
The whole purpose of life:-
“To love and be loved with a open heart“
“To make the most of all opportunities that life has to offer,
even those events that we categorise as bad, difficult and damaging.”
One thing I am sure of, as time passes, we evolve with the lived experiences, bringing us to our truth, through the feelings felt and the knowledge learned, as we journey through life collecting the little fragments of treasure along the way.”
I will live my daily life in acknowledgement of exactly that & I know for sure, it will save me from the noise and clatter of monotonous day to day living, allowing me to see and feel what is truly worthy of my time & effort. The hidden beauty even in the hardship.
Individually it is my choice whether i choose to appreciate and savour the truths that i come face to face with whilst i live out my various roles on this planet, whether they be easy or difficult to cope with in the moment.
Invariably we, as humans opt for suppression of those feelings, awakenings and whispers, hushing all there is to learn, ranging our experiences from sheer normality (i.e nothing special worthy of our attention), difficult times we need to navigate through and just get through or an event which was a hurdle to something better.
Pay attention, the something better is here, right now, staring you in the face, hoping that you will just appreciate each & every aspect of your lives, from the ability to wake, walk & feel the air in your face, to having loved ones surround you & just being able to see and touch their faces, or the freedom to cook and eat exactly what you desire, the list goes on, they are all our daily miracles, the tiny miracles that culminate to lives being truly lived with open hearts and minds.
Wonderful day to each of you.
