What matters most in life

I was thinking today about life and how difficult it can be. My life, everyone’s life, is so crazy. We drive in gas-guzzling cars and go to school. We are bombarded with advertisements for this and that. None of that matters. The only thing that really matters in life is not things. Things can be replaced. Family and friends matter. Your body matters. I have been trying to figure out ways that I could make my life more meaningful. Everything I have learned is that I need to be at peace with myself. I have tried to get more sleep and eat three meals a day. I go to church and spend time with my family. I find joy everyday in something, even if it is as simple as seeing the sunset in the evening. I know that anger only inhibits my thinking. So I try not to jump to conclusions and blame others for my faults. I suppose that this self-discovery will not last forever but I sure hope that if I work at it that I can keep it for a long time.
