 Making and Reaching Worthwhile Goals

Life is a process of setting and reaching goals. Formulating and achieving worthwhile goals add meaning to life.

Even if one's life is very challenging, having worthwhile goals raises the quality of life.

The happiest people are those who strive for worthwhile goals, not those whose life is just fun and games.

People with a positive self-image believe in their ability to attain meaningful goals.

Someone who has already accomplished worthwhile goals will have an even more positive self-image.

Part of successful goal making and reaching is an awareness of your life mission.

People who are clear about their life mission are clearer about their goals.

Developing a life mission that inspires and motivates you is one of the most important things that you can do in your life.

Today marks my one year Aliyah. It was a goal that I had for many years, but there were some detours on the way.

Thank you to all my new friends and the old ones who are still in my life. G-d gives to each of us the things we need to

  fulfill our life mission, but I can only pray my future life will be filled with love and joy and a minimum of pain.

It is a moving story, beautifully presented.

Enchanted River is found in Philippines . It is called "enchanted" because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people,
including scuba divers, have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover,
locals share that NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear. They say its
bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00 pm, the water becomes
clearer and even more majestic.

Poland has a forest full of bent pine trees ( Crooked Forest )
Christ the Redeemer Statue overlooking the whole of Rio was pretty special. You could see it from everywhere you went.
I also have to say that the majority of the people who lived there, including the 'natives' (especially in the favelas) knew
exactly who it was and respected it and what it stands for.

The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia 's Christmas Island and start a long,
laborious trek toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline
and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island's central plateau with their offspring in tow. The synchronized migration
resembles a crimson-colored river undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days. The event typically takes place
in November or December (the crabs will only move when it's raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the
arrival of the waning moon.
