Many people have been birthed, grew up, grew old, and died. They all made memories while they were alive. Some made a lot of exciting memories while others made memories they wish they could forget. What I learned over the years is that the joy of living is not in the time you spend on the earth but on the beautiful memories that one makes. If you cannot look back and say you have lived because of everything you have done on earth, then you have wasted years.
Everyone should always strive to live a life that is packed with achievements, amazing moments and memories, and a life that has been satisfactory. This way, you will be happy with yourself for having life in your years.
Live Life and Make Memories Every Day
Every bright morning is a new day to live large, make memories, change lives, and do exploits. Having life in your years requires that you take every opportunity as a chance to make the world a better place and to impact the lives of men. Make up your mind to be different, to be the change that you want to see, to be the source of joy and happiness to other people. Ensure that when you leave this world, you will leave it better than you found it. This is the only way you can say that your years had life when your end comes. Taking Abraham Lincoln as an example, his years on earth counted a lot because there was life in his years. His life is a perfect reflection of what he said.
“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
— Abraham Lincoln
Choose What You Want
Every day you live in this world, you have an option of being an ordinary individual or being an extraordinary individual. If you are an extraordinary individual, you can confidently say your years have life because you will have done extraordinary things. Therefore, when you wake up, have a noble course in mind to fight for, stand up for human rights, find new ways to transform the society and so on.
Also, do not neglect yourself. You need to be healthy, strong, vibrant, wise, and energetic for you to have life in your years. Take care of yourself. Travel across the world and look at the beauty of life. Taste different cuisines of different places and let your tongue have a taste of the finest meals in the world. You will live to remember such times.
Invest in Making Memories
As you live every glorious day, invest in making memories that you will be proud to speak about. Make memories that show the world how well you lived and the life in your years. You can make as many memories as you want because there are no limitations. Make memories that your generations will read about and be proud of. Refuse to be of those that live lives that have no purpose or achievements rather choose to have life in your years.
You are responsible for the kind of life you live and the kind of report you will leave behind. Therefore, strive to make it a good one. Live a life that is full of positive memories and is full of life. Live a good life that people will be proud to speak of. Leave a mark in this world and make your memory unforgettable; have life in your years.
