What Matters

“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that counts, it’s the life in your years.”

Dr. Seuss

I saw that quote on a social medium (claiming it’s quoted by Dr Seuss) and a lot of things came to my mind. It is impossible to predict things, and at the same time, it is also vital to have a plan. It’s not your business, but I do have a plan. Asking questions aid in identifying things in our lives that are wasting our time.

I feel if I do not communicate with someone – whether family or not – often or not I prefer not to keep them around – nothing serious – and this speaks to my use of social media and the so-call friend’s list. I’ve been doing this for a while now. I even unfollow pages that are irrelevant to my personal development. No, it isn’t being petty. It’s protecting my space and decluttering the things and people who are not on the same path as I am. It feels more peaceful and kind of safe.

It’s the latter part of the quote above that speak to me. Living life isn’t about age but, about what is done to make life worthwhile. What can be done to make it worthwhile? For me, it is ridding yourself of the things that don’t contribute to your growth and development. That involves people, things, events and attitudes that are inessential. So this is what I’m doing with my years to make it count. This will also ensure that my years be of good quality and worthwhile living. And if this is to be achieved it will require less hoarding and instead decluttering from time to time.

Always get rid of things you don’t need and ultimately serves no purpose.

2022 is almost here, what are you giving your time to? What are some of the best things you’ve done this year? Were those things beneficial to you? How did it help to develop your life? Are you happy about it?

If you believe that you haven’t done enough or anything at all it’s never too late to start. Take the time right now to plan how you want your life to transform. Maybe you have habits and patterns you want to get rid of. There are so many things that hold us back and prevent us from improving. But if you want to move forward letting go is your only option. Don’t wait for approval from others, this is your life and you must do what it takes to develop yourself and make your life more worthwhile.

Final thoughts.

Living in a fast-paced world, sometimes we forget the things that are important to us. Those are usually the things that are essential to our growth and development. That’s why I always we must first work on ourselves to change the game. Your focus should be to make an extraordinary life for yourself. Give it your all and avoid comparing yourself to others. The life you create for yourself should measure up to your goals and dreams not the life of others.

Start believing today that you can – and you are responsible for your life and only you can change it. That’s all that matters.

Success! You're on the list.

  1. Oh yeah, we do indeed forget what’s important to us, don’t we? It’s great to take a step back to take stock of our lives, and to do it regularly. Great perspectives. Thanks for sharing!
