It doesn't matter how impressive you appear to others, if you're not happy and genuinely fulfilled. It doesn't matter how much money you put into your bank account if you fail to put real, authentic living into your days.
Much of what you assume, in the urgency of the moment, to be important, is probably not so important. As the world's complexity swirls fiercely around you, remind yourself of what truly matters.
By all means, set ambitious goals, plan, work and achieve. Just be sure there's a good, solid, meaningful purpose behind it all.
Your life is yours to be lived with genuine richness. Use your time and your efforts to create valuable substance, not just to enhance your image.
You are so very much more than a mere status update. Open yourself to the full magnificent reality of your existence in each splendid moment.
Live wholly, feel deeply, and act boldly according to the truth of who you are. Commit yourself every day to the highest and best experience of your own miraculous life.
