Have An Interest In Your Life - Make The Most Of Your Time

What is of real interest in our life? What do we find exciting? What do we find stimulating? What do we dislike? What do we hate doing? What do we love doing?

What do we find is important and significant in life? What concerns us in life? We need some real focus in our life. Find this both within yourself and in your outer life and the world at large. Create a balance of looking after yourself and experiencing the outer world.

Let these activities and recreation stimulate you, enthuse you, balance you, inspire you, satisfy you. That your life can be fulfilled and a happy and productive one.

But don't forget to explore your life and the world in which you find yourself. To grow and develop and find peace and contentment within yourself.

Your interests should be a part of your everyday life. At times they put you in a situation where obstacles and hurdles appear, and questions are asked. There are always consequences for our deeds and actions.

With this comes tension and pressures and other emotions to cope with. These add anxiety and further burdens to otherwise pressurized lives. We need to quickly put 'our' house in order. To put things into perspective for ourselves we will question and ponder, think and reassess - what we do, who we are, our tensions and anxieties, ourselves. At times like these words can be very powerful - healing, soothing, comforting, relaxing . . .

The power of words . . .

As we read we can let the words gently flow over us. We can let the words quietly be spoken to us in there own sweet way. We can let ourselves open to the thoughts and their meanings, the ideas and their origin, the phrases and the understandings that they have ready for us. Ready for us to assimilate and take on board. If we let them filter through and allow the words their power to move and rejuvenate. If we let ourselves be uplifted and filled with their sometimes hidden insights. Let them gently and slowly impact on our lives as we read - and in the future when we recall their meaning for us.

I hope this page will do this and more. I hope this example will help to express life in an insightful, penetrating but easy to read manner. And help us to question the lives we lead and the manner in which we live them.


In life we should be able to show our interest
in what we do, how we are, and reap the benefit
enjoying the time we have and realize its importance
filling each day with good things and real substance

For otherwise what is it all really for
why not look after yourself and then restore
your energies at the end of each and every day
having received much about which you could say

A hearty thank you to life for the gifts
of contentment, satisfaction and joy that lifts
you from the doldrums into a state of mind
where you feel good, relaxed and can unwind

And receive the rest that you deserve
your energy, your effort to reserve
for the actions and deeds to be found ahead
that you need attend to and be able to spread

Your efforts where they are needed the most
attention, resource if not a welcome boost
to send your interest along the way
you can rest happy that you've worked well today.


Life we all know is oh so important
about most things we should avoid making judgment
though many things, we find, have a passing interest
for you, you may yet find that you need to adjust

To what is important and real in your path
it could be english, geography or pure math
but the likelihood it is this or that game
put your effort in and life may never be the same

Experiment and explore this wondrous world
find something that grabs you though it may remain buried
bring it forth to see the light of the day
give it your all and find happiness, satisfaction, enjoyment today


If you are going to do something it may as well be of interest
to you and your future and it need not be the safest
for at times adventure beckons you to be at your boldest
life will give you the wherewithal to act at your strongest

For life surely does not tempt you while being noticed
to give you opportunities to excel as it has promised
for that is what life gives us being at its noblest
we would do well to take notice and be at our wisest

There being little here about which we can protest
at times things turn out and we should be honest
about the effort we have put in to reach this modest
but fulfilling state of affairs, life being our artist

And conductor of affairs though that may be the strangest
way we have reviewed our life, but we should not distrust
our feelings and instincts which we do entrust
in us feelings of joy, contentment, fulfilment most earnest


At times you may find things interesting
at times things come that are plain tempting
but how should you handle them
follow instincts, don't quickly condemn
the offer, accept it without further prompting

All best,
Martin
