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.

Regular exercise should be an essential part of a person’s daily life. People can work out in the gym, do calisthenics or play a sport. Anything that gets the blood flowing is beneficial to a person’s health. It can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, improve mental health, and improve your overall physical features. While some people prefer to spend an evening at the gym with sophisticated work-outs and proper training, others prefer to go on a simple morning jog or go cycling on the track. One may be better than the other but in any case, it is important to be doing something in the form of a regular workout.

Formal exercise may consist of bench presses, squats, lunges, planks, foam rollers, box jumps, and interval treadmill sprints among others. People hire professional gym trainers that keep track of their exercise and workout routines to allow them to maintain efficient fitness and see the best possible results as fast as possible. Trainers also serve as inspiring motivators who try to bring the most motivation out of you to go the extra mile in achieving your daily workout goals. Others prefer a therapeutic ambiance of their customized playlists while doing their solo exercise.

To them, this is an escape from the world and they prefer to be enjoying their own company in their workouts and thus avoid hiring professionals that would constantly have to be by their side at the gym. Similar mindsets follow those who choose to go on solo walks, individual cycling tracks, or even early morning hikes on the weekends. All of these activities could conversely be done in groups, depending on the people’s preference. What is important to know is that, regardless of having or not having company (or professionals), people indulge in different activities to keep their blood flowing and in order to stay active. Those who do not choose to do this might need to soon reconsider and take up a similar healthy lifestyle.
