"And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
If you want your life to count, you need to live with meaning. Don't waste your time doing unimportant things. If you do not yet know what your life's purpose is, discovering it can change everything. If you life according to your life's purpose, you begin to live with passion, with creativity, with intention, with meaning. You make those years count. You impact not only YOUR life, but the lives of those with whom you come in contact.
This week: Think about how you would like your life to be remembered. What is really most important to you? What do you feel passionate about? What do you stand for? What themes have played out in you life? Is there a hint in all that about what you are meant to do, what your life's true purpose is? To know your life's purpose, you must first know yourself, because that purpose needs to fit you. Spend some time this week thinking about what is most important to you, what your unique gifts may be, and how you would like to make your life count.
