Crush your enemies

"Conan, what is best in life?"
"To crush your enemies..." (Conan the Barbarian 1984)

Some wise words from the 'govenator' inspire today's post. It was actually my husband who quoted it from the top of his head when we were talking about priorities in life. He has the most random things stored up there, you gotta love his brain!
But there are some very important truths in those few words. First, to be able to figure out what ones priorities are, one must figure out what one finds most enjoyable. What attracts you to living with full potential?

Like I mentioned in yesterdays post, I have been pondering what I want out of life. No, I am not going through some sort of midlife crisis! It is just so very important to take a step back and look at the situation. Am I living the life I want? Nothing selfish about it, everyone deserve to live a full life! A wider perspective is all it takes sometimes. I know what I enjoy, I know what makes me smile, I just have no idea right now what to do with it! My problem is I have a hard time relaxing and just letting life happen. If I feel I have lost control and just 'flowing about', then it is time for some sort of action plan! I like striving towards things. But what the hell do I want? Am I even close to living a life of purpose?

Sorry, cant answer those questions. Wish I could, but for right now I am just thinking aloud. It is nothing one should stress, this is one thing that needs to linger for some time... Oh why do I crave constant action?! Patience Annika, it is a virtue after all...

But Conan's answer to the best in life is to crush your enemies. Maybe that is the answer! To crush you enemies, to concur whatever stands in your way for you to live your life of purpose, or whatever your goal destination may be, is the priority. Maybe it is not the purpose it self, the goal, that is the solution, but the journey getting there? Life is not completing, life consists of struggles to complete (or enemies to crush). Everything you concur to get to you goal, that is what makes life and who you are and that is the most important, not the end solution.

So maybe it is just the right time to sit back and keep crushing those enemies. I want to find my purpose in life, and all the while it might just be my life that is the purpose! So live now and live strong peeps.

Cant believe I got all that from a quote from that silly movie! Hasta la vista baby, I'll be back!

I am totally the same. I get restless and feel "stuck" sometimes, like I need to find something new to explore.

There's so much greatness in the world and I don't want to miss out on any of it!

Do a 10K. We can motivate each other :)

Sometimes what we are looking for just falls into our laps when we least expect it!
In the meantime, continue doing the things you love and all will fall into it's place!
Nice post-love the "deep thoughts"!

Now you could put a RKC as one of your enemies!

Great comments! yeah hate feeling stuck, but like Diana said, most of the time things just happen and keep doing things that make life worth living in the meantime! I would adore to do both a 10 K and RKC, gotta get some training in first!

It also helps if one can forgive and let go of something. Something or someone you have forgiven has no hold on you anymore. They or it is just not of any importance. Also, don't forget a quote from one of our favorites’: Ladybugs, ladybugs all over.... You know what I mean.
