This quote, “What are you doing in my Son’s World?”, have ringed in my mind ever since the first day I heard it 8 years ago. I went to a Boy’s State Convention my junior year of high school. There are still some people I talk to from the convention, but the quote is what I remember most still today is because of the person telling the story about how his son died just to early to experience life and how people are not taking their lives seriously.
As I look back and constantly think of this story I get a greater appreciation of life and what I am ment to do in it as a person. For the past couple of weeks I have been really thinking about life and then death. Then I dug deeper about what were the most important things about living. It always came back to relationships, relationships with family, friends, coworkers, and people in general. Nothing else mattered at that time and still today, so I thought real hard about my true life’s mission and how I can connect to people and also with myself because that was what life means to me right now.
Oke’s Life Mission for People
This mission deals with simply having meaningful relationships with people that mean the world to me(family, friends, people that cross my path) and to having compassion for humanity.
Oke’s Life Mission for Himself
This mission means being absolutely selfish for what you want out of life. Life is surely about giving, but if you are not having fun with the things that you are doing then you shouldn’t be doing it. Remember, you “only live once” and you have to make the best out of it and have no regrets when that time comes to meet your Maker.
A Day is a Beautiful Thing
I used to dread waking up throughout the week, until I realized that everyday is unique and precious. We can continue to eat healthy and workout, but we still don’t know when our last days on earth will be, and I just thank the Lord so much for giving me the opportunity to figure out myself and figure out the world.
