A Complete Manual On How To Have Value In This World


The End.


It’s the simple truth.

Too simple for many of us to grasp.

Too complex for many of to understand why it’s so difficult for others.

  1. As simple as it is, I think you are right. I think, therefore I am?


  2. Excuse me, I think I’m missing pages 1-1000??? What? You mean it’s that simple??


  3. Colleen, it’s been a rough week. This post is exactly what I needed to read in this moment. Why is it that we so often forget what we already know?


    • I’m not sure Carolin. I hope this message gets through to the inspiration who I wrote it for. Though I verbally said it, and have said it, I thought a visual might help as well. I’m glad it said something to you. That means it carries a message. I think we all have moments where we need to hear this, even if it’s from our own thoughts. Hopefully we know how to pull it out when we need it.


  4. I wish we all learned this as children! Or if lucky enough to learn it as children, wouldn’t it be nice to hold onto this belief!

    It is that simple, as long as you are in the moment of living while existing. I *existed* for years and years as—well, I existed. I don’t want to go back there.


    • Amen April. It is this simple. I just want to reinforce a message to someone. Your existence also doesn’t have to be according to someone’s else’s parameters. You are here, and you are going to do the best you can. Mistakes? Heck yes! But they aren’t going to define you, they are going to help you find the way to who you are and where you’re going to go. Live in those moments as well. Thank you April. For NOT going back there!

    Do you think it’s exist or perhaps instead, be present? A lot of people exist, but they aren’t very present. I hate getting on elevators and everyone has to check their phone. Geez people, look up and have a conversation. Actually, our Panera is great for that. Of course, when you’re getting coffee you can’t look at your phone at the same time. We’ve had all kinds of chit chat with strangers there. Only for a few minutes, but it’s pleasant.

    Have a good week!



    • Well, I think we have value in our existence. My original point being (to someone in particular) that your existence alone is value. You don’t need validation from ‘the’ world. You exist. Therefor you have value. But yes, I would think being present may just enhance one’s existence. 😉

        Ah. I missed your point. Sorry about that.


        • Oh Nancy, I don’t think you missed my point. I think you expanded on it. I think it’s wonderful that I can post so few words and prompt such thoughts from anyone. I just wanted to share back my original thought for this one (in case the reason it was ever inspired for….read this). I think our posts and comments are a classroom of literature discussion. And I love it! 🙂

    Every day you write the book, MBC. And this one says it all. Perfect.

    Exist, closely followed by live. Great simple reminder. Thank you.


  11. Light encased within a box by itself is dark, yet becomes light when objects are placed within for it to reflect off of. Even Forrest Gump shared a famous quote from his momma: “life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get!” Descartes, cogito ergo sum…..nice blog!

    I agree. I tell people. We decide our life. Good or bad. This is our chance to do something worthwhile.
