lost and found

I once was Lost in this world without a calling or a heading in my life and i never knew what i was going to do. I would sit and wonder how things were going to turn out and where I was going to go, I was afraid.
Then my thoughts began to wonder about how many other ppl in this world were in the same situation I was in and I started to worry about them. I worried about my friends and family, about those i didnt know and realized that I cared more about what would happen to them in thier lives than i did my own. I wanted to protect them from the dangers in this world so they could live thier lives to the fullest.
Thats when i Found my calling in the military. I became a soldier to protect those who are lost and helpless in this world and those who have found their calling in life whatever that may be. I served to protect the future of our nation and it brought me the greatest joy i have ever known. So I want you all to sit and think and find what you want out of life and not worry or be scared. Because there are those of us who train and fight to protect you and your freedoms. Just remember today is only what you make of it. So dont take anything for granted and live your life like you will never have another minute.

  9. I'm so glad that you found your calling and are living a life that is meaningful for you. Your last two sentences, "Just remember today is only what you make of it. So don't take anything for granted and live your life like you will never have another minute." are very wise and provide good advice for all people.

  11. It's really easy to think how bad your own life is, until you start to look at other people, and then you can often realise your own isn't really not that bad.

  15. Urgh, sorry, but I have a problem with the military. Never one for blindly following orders, I just don't understand this mentality. I don't ask any man or woman to lay down their life for me, or for my country. I'm not scared to live my life, or to face whatever my come, and I'd rather do it without soldiers losing their lives fighting wars in countries we have no business being in.
    I know this won't be a popular view, but I have to be honest when I reply to these things. I understand your desire to find yourself, and I am glad you did.
