What do we measure a life by?
Do we measure it by the number of dollars earned?
Do we measure it by the number of lives touches?
Or can we stop measuring everything and just acknowledge that each life is precious?
We all contribute in our own way.
We all add to the fullness that is life in this world.
We all add to the richness that makes up the tapestry of creation.
Regardless of how much money we have earned.
Regardless of how many accomplishments we are credited with.
Regardless of the races won.
The moments we live being truly present with another being are the most precious of all.
In the end, a life lived with joy an compassion is the richest life of all.
It is not about who is the most productive.
It is not about who makes the most deals.
It is not about who has the largest, or smallest, family.
Our energy, our presence, creates a unique impact on this planet.
We all add something to the mix.
If we were not here, things would be different.
If we never existed, life would be unimaginably altered.
We all have a place in this world, from the poorest of the poor to the richest and most famous.
Our roles are different, our purposes diverse.
As we learn to revel in our differences and stop comparing ourselves to others, we start to live life more fully.
When we focus on each moment as the precious gift it is, we become rich in experience.
How are you measuring your life?
