The Beautiful Truth

>> Thursday

For each of us, eventually whether we’re ready or not, someday it will come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, or days. All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten will pass to someone else. It will not matter what you owned or owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.

So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire. The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days will be measured?

I love this quote and have read it for a few days now. It makes me humble and sets me up to do better in the world. You left out the last line though, which I think sums it up well ... "A life lived that matters is not of circumstance but of choice."

Thank you for this Adam.
