Mark Hood, a Topeka psychologist, recently published "Live Before You Die," a book written to help people recognize "who you are and who you can be."
In the epilogue, he lists ideas that capture "The Meaning of Life."
Â Do something for anyone and do not take credit for it.
Â Some people will never allow themselves to be happy.
Â Everyone's got a problem. Some have the wisdom to concentrate on solutions.
Â Don't wait for things to happen; make them happen.
Â The goal of a human being is to find out how to connect with yourself, and then with others.
Â Always get a second and third opinion on every major decision. In the final act, you will learn to trust your own opinion.
Â Forgive your parents and hope that your children will forgive you when they grow up.
Â Sing often and sing loud. If you feel that you're not a good singer, just listen to Bob Dylan.
Â No one, and I mean no one, owes you anything.
Â Life is far too funny to take seriously.
