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.

We have all seen our grandmas knit and create those cool designs. Knitting has been one of my oldest hobbies. Knitting was initially considered a man’s job and women were not allowed to take part in it. People from all over the world spend their time knitting. This article will give a basic rule on how you can start knitting.

There are many astonishing facts about knitting such as no one knows how old knitting really is. The yarn is known to decay, which does not allow archaeologists to track back the time when it all started. However, archaeologists use other knitting tools as a means to track back and it is surprising to notice that those tools were around 7000 years old and were found in Switzerland. Initially, knitting had to be done by hand but with the advent of machines in the late 1500s, women were also allowed to practice it. Furthermore, knitting has been one of the oldest hobbies that people adopted and used to make clothing out of them. There have been multiple genius book records that have acclaimed knitting as one of the longest hobbies. David Bartok has been known for knitting while running in a marathon race. By the end of the race, he had managed to form a 12-meter-long scarf.

Furthermore, this activity is known to be extremely healthy. People who knit unconsciously train their minds to manage certain activities. Knitting can be considered a very healthy pastime as it is known to relieve any symptoms of anxiety and depression. Furthermore, knitting is also known to burn calories. So when you frequently knit you are more likely to avoid any cardiac arrests and also significantly improve your sensory neuron mechanism. Furthermore, it is also known to change in the upcoming times. New fibers have been introduced.
