Keys to Life


 I found this huge box of rusty old keys at the flea market.

If only they were the Keys To Life!

   
Today, I choose to be happy, content and grateful.

Surely those must be three of the Keys To Life.
 
What else? 
What do you think is important?
What do you think is a Key To Life?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts...

I think it's different for everyone, but I think mine is a sense of security, deep family ties, and permanence.

...oh Laura ~ How you inspire me so! ~ even through this treasure box of keys!!!
~ for me, it's three G's: God, Gratefulness & Gracefulness!!
I find that when I'm actively seeking these three, everything else falls into place!

P.S. Today I start Kim's "Photoshop Skinny" class, and I'm so excited to learn how to present lovely photo's ~ and I owe that thanks to you dear Laura!

oh my gosh....so strange. I am in the process of cleaning out and sorting through 34 years of "stuff". Maybe an hour ago I looked at a pile of keys I had on the table trying to decide...keep or garage sale? I never looked at them that way as you described. I have a whole different feeling about my keys now...thank you!

Yes - I would choose those three keys..if I had my d'ruthers. Love the image..and the metaphor.

your three keys work for me...i might throw in forgiveness and perhaps a passion or two...
what a find you came across with those keys!

kindness absolutely and giving of my time. so many people just need someone to give them some time and to be kind to them. I love the keys so gorgeous in a grungy way

Jamie said...

I love your list but would add: peace and love to the mix.

Relyn said...

I want the keys. I want the keys. I really, really want some of those keys. OK... maybe now I can concentrate.

The key to life - a good life - is love, faith, and prayer.
