Welcome to A Life Examined

What is the examined life? A life worth living! As I look at the road ahead, I take all the baggage from the past and use it as experience - the pain and the passion, the sorrow and the joy - allowing it to carve wisdom into my mind and hope into my spirit.
There is no experience that can't be useful to me at some point in my life. There is no lesson learned that cannot make a contribution to the future.
A tiny drop of water is a part of the ocean. A tiny speck in the night sky is a ginormous star in the distance. It all depends on perspective.
So, this examined life is to offer reflections in the hope of discussing things which are of value to myself and to others.
Love, Sarah

Knowledge versus Wisdom

We don't know how old the earth is, or when time began to begin to mark it's age. We know how old we are - and sometimes we feel full of knowledge and sometimes bereft of anything worthwhile to offer this world.
BUT a shell is beautiful, though empty.  How much more beautiful a human being, full of hope, ideas, thoughts, arguments, inner turmoils. It matters little how much we know.  It matters much how we practice what we know. Fulfillment and purpose comes little from what we do, but more from our attitude as we do it, and our relationship to those around us, as we engage in this age-old journey called life.
