The Art Of Christian Living

Exploring & Sharing Life | Lessons | Experiences

Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. Viktor E. Frankl

To live a meaningful life, you must know that one thing is true: What you do already matters. Philosopher William James, one of the founders of pragmatism, said it best: “Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.

Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human. Viktor E. Frankl
Unhappiness comes from believing that no one cares about what you do. It’s easy to feel irrelevant in a crowded world. Wake up, go to work, go back home, and watch TV until you fall asleep. You’re just going through the motions.

What you’re forgetting is that happiness is a byproduct of usefulness. And you can be useful in big and small ways every single day. Say you have to send an email to a student informing her that she didn’t get accepted into your company’s internship program. The words you use can make a difference in her decision to try again. Or maybe you’ve taken on an extra project to help out a grieving co-worker. Your work is allowing him to spend much-needed time with his family. Darius Foroux

Happy Weekend and stay bless!

    Man’s Search for Meaning is a book I’ve been meaning to read by Viktor E. Frankl. Can’t wait to have my mind blown by this thoughts. Thanks for sharing, Marie!

    1. Marie Cook – I am a food lover, and cooking is therapeutic for me; it relaxes me and transports me to a quieter universe away from the noisy, busy modern world. I am a Counseling Mental Health & Wellness graduate student, wife, and stepmother. I love connecting with people from different cultural backgrounds through food, fashion, wisdom, and lifestyle in general. To be continued because I am still in the process of discovering who I am as I continue this journey called life. I promise to keep you all posted in the meantime.
