  • I don't live my life as I do "for" anyone or anything. I simply "live" as my heart dictates me too. I live breathing in all the beauty around me, and I try to find that beauty and love and light even among the ugliest of places.
    If I lived "for" anyone, I believe that would imply without them, I would die. And this is not the case. I simply "am", and I love that!

  • I live my life for myself because if I didnt then Id be useless to everyone and everything around me.

    That doesnt mean Im selfish or anything like that I just mean that if I didnt make sure I was ok then I couldnt extend that to others.

  • I live for myself first.  That is why my children and husband are first and foremost in my life because I want to devote my life to them.  By living for myself first, I am exactly where I want to be, doing exactly what I want to do and doing it for the ones I love most and that makes me happy.

  • Here is the order in my house:

    I live for God first. That takes care of everything else when I live by the word of God and the leading of the holy spirit. He comes first, He is the BEGINNING and the end

    My husband is my other half (the two have become one flesh). He is mine and I am his. We are to operate as a unit (one).

    Our children are a gift from God. We guide them in the training and admonition of the Lord. We protect them with our lives and would give ours up for them.
