I agree with Socrates quote that says, “The unexamined life isn’t worth living.” There is a difference between living the way you do and living the way you should. If you don’t examine your life, you’re living with no purpose and to me that’s equivalent to not living at all.
It’s never to late to examine your life. It’s something every person should do. Ask yourself if you’re living the life you want to live. Are you who you perceive yourself as around everyone, not just certain people. Living a good life comes with lots of questions. If you don’t have good motives and values you’re not living a good life. Everyone is going to have different motives but if you have no good intentions you may need to stop and examine your life again if you haven’t already.
Your going to much benefit yourself if you examine yourself and the more often the better. People get of track for whatever the reason may be and to stop and get back on track is necessary if not you may find yourself in a place you don’t want to be in. God is our only savior, if you never stop and take the time to ask him into your heart and for forgiveness then we will not live an eternal life because when we die we’re going somewhere. I think that we are all on earth for a purpose but how do we know what our purpose is if we don’t stop and examine our life?
I have examined my life many many times. I can’t think of a part of my life I have never examined but I know that are areas I could do better in such as everyone. I get off track as much as everyone if not more but getting back on track is the important part. Every night I try to pray and ask for forgiveness and not to make the same mistakes as I have. I try to wake up everyday with good intentions, do the things I need to do to the fullest, chase my dreams, live one day at a time, and put my trust in the Lord and continue down the path he has set for me.
