The Art of Living

“The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them.”

Bernard M. Baruch 1870 – 1965, American Financier, Statesman


As I see it . . . . . . .

The art of living


We are all dealt a hand, the environment that we were born into, our genes and station in life and from there it’s up to us.


How you play the hand that you were given is really up to you. You can decide that cards are stacked against you and fold. From that point on other people will decide what cards to give you and control you and your life.


Or you can decide on how to play the hand you were given. As you play your hand there will be times that things won’t work as well as you want them to and others times that hand will work out in your favor.


The key is you have to continue to play your hand and learn the lessons from each hand that you play. With each hand comes valuable experience and from those experiences you will becomes better at playing your hand in the future and knowing when to leave the cards on the table and start a new game.


The art of living . . . . Is to use your life experiences both good and bad as a learning experience and grow from both. In using your experiences you will move forward better prepared to handle the conditions that you encounter.
