PAGE 2 FRSA FLASH THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER !!!Life is filled with uncertainty. It is filled with blessings and defeat, happiness and sorrow,fear and faith, success and failure. It is impossible to know what tomorrow will bring. Youcannot predict what next week or month will bring. Be willing to enter the adventure of dis-covering your life purpose.Leo Rosten was humorist in the fields of story writing, scriptwriting and Yiddish lexicogra-phy. He understood the value of discovering a life filled with purpose.“The purpose of life is not to be happy. The purpose of life is to matter, to be productive, tohave it make a difference that you lived at all. Happiness means self-fulfillment and is givento those who use to the fullest whatever talents God or luck or fate bestows upon them.” (LeoRosten)This is your day. It is your time. What are you waiting for? Expect to discover more of yourlife purpose each day. Let your God given talents be used to make itmatter that you lived during this time!
