Finding My Bliss For some it takes till they’re forty years old to find their bliss and for others it comes naturally. For me, I think I was placed in the middle. I wasn’t exactly sure where I was going, but I knew I wanted to get somewhere. Not so exactly as “confused” and “lost”. More of just standing in front of a two-way street and not sure which way to turn and which would be the best direction for me. Taking Life Career Planning as a course was one giant leap that helped me discover myself and what I want to pursue. Throughout this semester I discovered myself in a deep personal level I didn’t even know existed in me. My meaning in life, my self-esteem, and what I value most in life. In the end I think I’ve accomplished a lot through this course. One of the first assignments was to talk about ourselves and what our purpose in life was. That was one of the most difficult questions for me to answer because I’ve never been asked that, nor get into deep conversations such as that. Thinking of my qualities, I realized that I am a very caring person and put others in front of me. I naturally take care of others when they need help and will put anything down at any moment to help them. My meaning in life would be that helping hand. One who gives and doesn’t expect to receive. Seeing others happy is what motivates me. Taking this course helped me realize that maybe being a pediatrician would be a comfortable career that I could use my caring qualities in, and a career I would enjoy! I know that I’m emotionally, physically and mentally stable in how I view myself, before joining this course. My only problem was to figure out what my dream career was. To be certain on which direction I am going towards. I’m capable of following through with a goal as long as I know what that goal may be. Now I stand a little taller and more confident of where I am going and the decisions I’m making because of this course. My self-actualization I feel I have I had no

    Ignorance is Bliss Ever since the invention of automobiles, something can always be said about someone based on the type of car they drive. When someone drives a big gas guzzling SUV or truck, someone always says, “what a terrible person! Don’t they understand what they are doing to the environment?” Then someone drives by in a Toyota Prius and that same person says “Now that’s a smart person. Why can’t everyone in the world be like them?” A wise man once said “Ignorance is bliss” and this applies…

It is the general belief that "if I do not know, therefore it cannot be  state of mind that causes people to feel this way.

    People who are ignorant are the ones who do not know the essential, practical knowledge that they need to know in order to keep their position as thoughtful, social beings. Therefore, the quote, "Ignorance is bliss," by Cypher in the movie "The Matrix" cannot possibly be true. Ignorance is not bliss, because ignorance causes conflicts between people, makes chances become a big part of life, and makes fallacies into truths. Plato's equation of "Knowledge = True, Justifiable Belief," strictly applies to…
