Finding Paradise

Yesterday I got a comment from a fellow blogger that me think... She said:

"totally jealous of that beach, I live in paradise too, but I think you totally one up me : )"

Well, first of all, thanks Hallie for the comment, but specially because you have inspired me to think about what really Paradise is all about?

I too have the idea that paradise could be described as a wonderful white sand beach, with turquoise waters; laying on a hammock/lounge chair, with perhaps enough suntan lotion, a cool cocktail and a good book? Totally!

But then I think of all the many people that are not as blessed as we are and all they would like for a Paradise is a good life.

So many people nowadays around the world that probably imagine Paradise as a place; free of violence, having enough to feed their families, a roof over their heads and a warm bed to go to at night... Or maybe just the chance to live in a peaceful country.

In many cases our life situation is not because we chose it, we were blessed enough to have a parents/people that raised us, work and care to give us all they that they could; love, education, opportunities and lessons to chose the right path in life.

Others don't have that chance, even from before they were born.

So my point about Paradise is to make the best of the life you have, with the right attitude and hard work and specially the help and faith in God, we can make Paradise out of our lives and the place that we live in.

But most importantly we could try to give a bit of our Paradise to those that are not as fortunate as we are.

On an unrelated subject, tomorrow is another edition of Throwback Thursday, so if you feel like linking up to my blog, just grab the following button and post it in your blog with a photo from your past plus 5 fact about the photo, yes, it's that easy!



Have a wonderful day in your Paradise!

Sorry for not dropping by for such a long time, but you are not forgotten!! I can get so much life's inspiration from reading your posts. Sometimes we are too caught up with life that we tend to forget to appreciate the little things in life :)

That is such a simple and moving post, and you are so right..! If ever you think of changing job, you would make a brilliant vicar/priest/reverend (or whatever it´s called) - you truly would! xo

This sentence is going to stay with me "So my point about Paradise is to make the best of the life you have, with the right attitude and hard work and specially the help and faith in God, we can make Paradise out of our lives and the place that we live in."

Thanks Anna E. You are so sweet, I guess when you write from the heart is much easier to express yourself.
