It does not matter how long you live, but how well you live. Life is not all about the number of birthdays you celebrate; it goes beyond your age. It’s about the content of the life you lived. We are all authors of our own lives, we are writing a story with our lives and at the end of everything it’s up to us to either become heroes or villains.
I believe the quality of life is measured by how much impact we are able to make in the lives of others, in our generation and that of the unborn. We still read of many great men of old not because they lived long but because the impacted their generations so we still talk and read about them.

There is a saying that the age of Methuselah has nothing to do with the Wisdom of Solomon, this clearly tells us that age is important but it’s not the ultimate in achieving results.

When you leave this earth people will only remember you by your works not the years you spent on earth. Remember that life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others’. Our lives should be lived to the benefit of others. What are you doing for others in the life that you are living? Are you living or you are surviving?

Many of us are only surviving so we are passing through life as survivors with no sense of direction and purpose. We are only interested in the number of birthdays we will be celebrating on earth other than the number of lives we will be affecting.

At the end of it all, our ages would not be the standard others will measure us with but the content of those years we lived, the quality of life we lived, the number of people who got affected by our lives. What are you going to be remembered for? At the end of your story are you going to be a hero or a villain? Will your story live on for generations to read or it will fade away like you never existed?

Start living a life of impact…Stop surviving and start living.
Have a blissful week!!!!
