It Matters Monday

MAY 2, 2011

This week's It Matters Monday is solely based on gratitude! I have to thank two people for making my day. One of them is letting me borrow their truck which is amazing! However, I can't drive super awesomely big trucks so I had to recruit another friend to drive it and help me move and throw away some stuff I no longer need. Both of these things are a huge help to me and I appreciate them so very much.

I know I've said it before but I truly am grateful for the people in my life, I am often awestruck by their desire to help me even at times when it might be inconvenient for them. I am inspired by my family and my friends everyday, they hold me accountable, they don't judge me and they push me to live up to my potential.   

Leo Rosten said:‎"I cannot believe that the purpose of life is (merely) to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate. I think it is above all to matter, to count, to stand for something. To have it make some difference that you lived at all." I could not agree more, I want to steer my life in a direction that makes a difference. I believe that happiness begins with a life he describes; happiness begins with a life that matters!


Let me know what you stand for I would love to hear about it.
