Is it Meaningful?


“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day.” ~ Dalai Lama

I posted this quote yesterday on my Facebook Fan page followed by my own interpretation: “If it’s not meaningful, why bother? Life is meant to be meaningful; if you choose to make it that.”

Dr. Larry Benovitz, author of There is no Redo: Strategies for a Lifetime, and fellow Toastmaster jokingly posted: “What do you mean?”  My snarky reply was: “Larry if you don’t know, I can’t help you.”

Yet, there is help; it originates from within. We oftentimes seek to find meaning in our lives vie external resources or people. Usually, this does not fill that empty feeling you get that something is missing; the void remains. It is best to pause and examine what we are doing and with whom we are doing it. How do they impact our lives?

Are we doing things that keep us busy, but when we are done doing them, we still don’t have that feeling of accomplishment? Are we hanging or working with people that don’t enrich our lives or help us accomplish our goals? In my opinion, if the answer is “yes” to any of these, then it is time to change direction. Living a life that makes us feel as though we have a purpose to accomplish, doing what it takes to get it done with people that share that pursuit is enriching.  “…a new day arrives,” my friends, make it “…a meaningful day.”

Live a Diamond Life! Live a Life of Purpose!
