The Purpose Of Life...

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

I have been offered an opportunity to travel to China to enhance the life of children through education, and the english language. Due to financial hardship I need some assitance to be able to fulfill this mission. I believe my purpose on earth is to help and encourage the lives of others through giving more of myself, but learning at the same time. I want to put the idea of a better life in the minds of others without changing their culture or history. I also want to encourage improvements without sacrificing their way of life. The thought of traveling to another country to live and embark on a new way of life is more than exciting; it would mean everything to me. My passion is to help others especially children, and every little contribution makes me one step closer to achieving this goal. I believe that my generation can help change the world; I also believe that this change starts with me.Please help me help the children of China.Please view my campaign

So true. Being happy is over rated, I see people chasing happiness like they can catch it. when you live life the way you described it that true fulfillment sets in.

I totally agree with Tazia

By doing all these things you become truly happy.
