Add new value

There is much value in this life, in this existence. You can add much more.

If all you ever do is consume value, you’re cheating yourself. Because as you understand at the deepest level, making a difference is what makes life rich and meaningful.

It can be tempting to give in to complacency, to just coast, and live off the value that’s already there. Sure, take a break, relax, do nothing for a while, but not so long that it drains the meaning out of life.

Every person wants to matter, and the way to do that is to make a difference. You are hard wired to create value in some way or another.

So acknowledge that impulse and nourish it. Express in your own special way what it means to be alive by adding new value as the days go by.

See the beauty, feel the substance, experience the wonder. And add your own new value to it all.

— Ralph Marston
