Life is many things to many people regardless of their individual experiences. Ultimately though life is the universe’s gift to us, and living a life of meaning, is our gift back to the universe.
What does it mean to live a life of meaning? A life of meaning is a life lived to our fullest potential. In living up to our potential we get more from this gift call life, than we ever thought the gift of life was worth.
Our lives are individual journies that must be travelled. No matter how bad the roads and accommodations. One thing about life that is true for everyone is that one must die in order to graduate from life.
So whIle we are experiencing it, let a good and well lived life be the diploma we graduate with.
The writer Mark Twain said it best, that the two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why. On the way to finding out why, these three great questions should guide you on your path.
- Who are you and what is your value?
- What is your purpose in life?
- What is your destiny when you are done here?
Dr. Martin Luther King stated, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
What matters most above all things in life is knowing who we are and what our purpose is. And if we know what our purpose is are we fulfilling it?
