What I Want to Do:


 
Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

Go Placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they, too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; Many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be Yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; You have the right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be careful. Strive to be happy.


Apply this Desiderata to your life and you will enjoy life.

Wild Fact About Me Hmm... I left my family at age 16 and lived on my own without anyone around ever since.
My Philosophy No matter what issues you are encountering today, they are smaller than a grain of salt compare to what others are experiencing. So be greatful for ALL Life has to offer.
What Gives Me Hope To know that although I may experience ups and downs, I'm doing a lot better than millions of people.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Hmm... try to solve the immigration issues by temporarily providing a 2 year visa to all regardless of initial background so that we can keep track of all those already on land for security purposes; and then once everyone is registered, scan for all those with a previous criminal background or those with criminal records within the two year period and begin deportation of actual criminals. That's the best way to avoid a mess and be able to register everyone. Until we are able to keep track of illegals there is a big security breach. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against illegals and I can somehow understand, but if you're unable to identify someone is hard to say we're secured. Get them FINGERPRINT!!! I'm sure many crimes could be solved easier...
What/who changed my life and why I'm a knowledge seeker, so there is not one specific book or event that change my life. Everything that I experience in my life happens for a reason and provides me with more wisdom; everything I read enlightens my way and helps me understand some things better, but what really matter to me is the actions of people. Actions speak louder than words, words are wipe away by the wind. Act on what you believe, Seek and you shall find the answer.... Analyze and Research before making a final decision... and most importantly use COMMON SENSE...
