YOUR LIFE A-Z: MEANINGFUL
What is it that makes your life meaningful and what is meaningful to you? This word wraps nicely around gratitude because as we think about it, the word MEANINGFUL probably brings to mind things like family, children, friendships, good health, honest values, trustworthiness, and freedom. As you reflect further on the word you might extract valuables from the periphery of the word and realize that a piece of jewelry or art,because of the occasion or giver, is very meaningful to you. You might also remember trips in your life that were MEANINGFUL and certain milestones, such as graduation from high school, baptism, commitment ceremonies, or special birthdays that were a part of creating you into the person you are today. In one sense of the word, MEANINFULNESS sneaks up on us and just happens but we can create meaning too. If you are feeling lost, bored, lonely, and struggling to find MEANINGFULNESS in your life today, then get out of yourself. Go out and make someone else smile. Go find a homeless person and bring them some lunch. Look online and donate to a specific cause that’s meaningful to you. Call up some one who might like to hear your cheery voice, say, “Hey, just checking in to see how you are doing?” MEANINGFUL moments create MEANINGFUL lives. Don’t sit around and feel sorry for yourself. Get out and do something to make someone else feel better. As a result, you will feel better because you made your life count today. Today is all you have.
