Do you ever sit back and really think about what you want the meaning of your life to be? How do you want to be remembered? What do you want to accomplish?

I was at the dentist recently. Actually, I feel like I actually live at my dentist’s office. It’s not really a fun place to live, to tell you the truth. After undergoing two root canals, I feel like I’ve paid half of my dentist’s mortgage payments in the last year.

When you’re forced to sit with your mouth propped open for four hours, and as you are trying to ignore the sound of the drill and the taste of Novocaine, you start to wonder “How did I get here?” The simple answer is too much sugar and not enough flossing as a kid.

The really deep answer is when you ask the bigger question, “How did my life get to be where it is now?” That is the better question to ask yourself.

When you stand in front of the mirror and really look at yourself, what do you see? Who do you see? Are you accepting of yourself?

Do you have an extra line on your face? Do you have a smile line that you don’t like? Are you five or ten pounds overweight? Is your hair turning gray? Do you break out?

Are you accepting of yourself? Can you look past your flaws and absolutely love yourself? Can you accept the things that go wrong in your life, or when you don’t like something does it always become a crisis?

What is the meaning of your life? What do you want your life to be? Who do you want to become? What do you want to experience?

We talk too much about how to meet the opposite sex. When I throw in blogs about other things like relationships and things like this, I do it to get you guys thinking.

Life is not just about meeting the opposite sex. As we all know, loving yourself is the best gift you can give yourself every day. Accept who you are, where you are at and what you are feeling.

There are people who look in the mirror, don’t like what they see and will proceed to rip themselves apart. Stop beating yourself up.

So ask yourself where you want to be and how you want to define yourself. Do you love yourself? Full acceptance and love of who you are and where you’re at at this time in your life is really how you need to live.
