Harold Kushner, in When All You’ve Ever Wanted Isn’t Enough, says this: “What is life about? It is not about writing great books, amassing great wealth, achieving great power. It is about loving and being loved. It is about enjoying your food and sitting in the sun rather than rushing through lunch and hurrying back to the office. It is about savoring the beauty of the moments that don’t last, the sunsets, the leaves turning color, the rare moments of true communication. It is about savoring them rather than missing out on them because we are so busy and they will not hold still until we get around to them.”
What is your life all about? Stop today and write out your answer to that question.
