Have You Found Your Destiny?

I'm not sure most people have found there Destiny or even imagine what it will be like. However I know one thing. The only ones among you that are truly happy are those who have sought and found how to love and serve. 
The experience of seeing many of my family torn away from the sting of death taught me a lesson. Hurting people need "nothing" more than the love you give them. It's the ultimate unconditional commitment to an imperfect person. That was me, wounded, sad and longing for love. However, I was rescued thru the example of my mother. She demonstrated this love towards me even today. In spite of losing two husbands, five children plus many unlimited relatives and relationships she continued to press forward. 
Seeing her break free and meeting the needs of others affected me tremendously. Not because it was perfect but it was thru my own experience that taught me to realize this: If you wait for the perfect moment when all is safe and assured it may never arrive. Mountains will not be climed,races won or lost or lasting happiness won't happen. 
I went on my first "mission project" to Kenya five years ago. Amazing in the midst of what I saw still sends chills to me. The joy, peace,and love of those there was life changing. Happy in there current status, I  viewed them still as poor. They don't see it that way. They see it thru  the lenses of an opportunity to create!So  thru this i received the biggest gift I could ever have.There tremendous  love for each other was infectious.True unconditional love, sharing and caring was the common theme there. 
 So being happy is this.If you want "OTHERS" to be happy, practice compassion. If "YOU" want to be happy, practice compassion. We can choose to see life as a series of trials and tribulations, or we can choose to see life as an accumulation of treasures. I choose the later. 
Prayer: God Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot. Courage to change things I can,and the wisdom to know the difference.
