As I sit here, gazing at the night's starry sky, I ponder on the good things of life, and how we can make beautiful things of our existence. However as we examine the attitude of others we are reminded that although some may be under the impression that their life is the most fascinating thing, we see this is not so. 

The more I read their story the more familiar it sounds. As I examine their existence I have come to realize we all have to tread the same path. First there is the birth; No one can exist unless he has been born; Second there is everything in between, some you have no influence over, others you do; Third the end, which is death and then what? 
"Meaningless! We see the futility of life and realize that we are but a speck! Here today and gone tomorrow. Amidst the snares to which all are exposed, we all need strong and trustworthy defences on which to rely. For we all smile in the same language and we all hurt with the same heart.
  As generations come and generations go, we see the earth remains forever.  Just as the sun rises as the sun sets it hurries back to where it rises and another day begins. So it is with the river all streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. "There is nothing new under the sun. There is no remembrance of men of old, and even those who are yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow."
Hence we continue to brighten the corners where we are, in order to make life easier if not better for those who will pass this way! Remembering that; “Someone can sit under a tree today because someone planted them yesterday!” Concerning our curiosity to know about others? It serves to remind us that we are not an island. And in the hustle and bustle of life there is a commonality among us. Therefore our eagerness is to find answers for our questions.
Do we not all go through the same struggles? Here we find this to be true!  Troubles and hardships in life we have all experienced it! Do we not all share the same happiness, joy and cheerful times? Yes we do! In our search and sojourn in this life we come to realize that the most beautiful eyes have cried many a tears, and many a smile is used to hide our sadness. However in spite of our struggles and heartaches, it is still a beautiful world, our determination therefore must be to strive to be happy and that can only be accomplished when we become content with such things as we have. I believe we all are responsible for the choices we make in life. Principles we may or may not practice will indeed shape our destiny.
