“The Purpose Of Life…..



According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, the great American  writer from Concord, MA, ” 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.”

Today these simple and yet powerful words are seldom spoken, heard or written because e have all been engineered by constant advertising, mass marketing and mad media ,to want more and more goods services  and stuff so we all can be happy.

For many individuals  the only   purpose for getting up in the morning is to; “ Be happy.”  It’s an impossible goal.

Today I urge you to try something different: Today, just try to be useful.  I think that you will be amazed at how readily and easily this task can be accomplished.

Progress in recovery is not made by great leaps and bounds but by small and steady steps

Try it.
