Mariah Carey’s Epic 10 Year Challenge
Claire Miles - January 25, 2019

The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

Mariah Carey has always been known to do things her own way, and has never been afraid to speak her mind, even if it goes against the crowd. And whatever she may might be doing or saying, it’s always, 100 percent glamorous.


On January 16th, she responded to the 10 year Challenge in the most epic, and most Mariah Carey like way ever, and fans are of course going crazy over it. If you haven’t yet heard of the 10 year challenge that’s been going around on social media lately, it’s about posting a picture of yourself back in 2009 next to another one of you today.  Then all you have to do is sit back, relax and wait for the compliments to come in.


Instead, Carrie posted two identical photos of herself and wrote “I don’t get this 10 year challenge, time is not something I acknowledge,” followed by the shrugging emoji. “*Picture taken at some point prior to today.”


Way to go girl.
