"The question is not to know what is the meaning of life, but what meaning I can give to my life." Dalai Lama
Without question, we will all face uncertainty in our lives. There will be desperate moments when we feel alone, trying times when we feel isolated and vulnerable. And there will be anxious periods when we feel hopelessly lost.
It is in these very moments, when the present looks bleak and the future appears uncertain at best, that we discover the things that really matter, the people who really count.
The things that matter most.
"What's important is finding out what works for you." Henry Moore
What matters most in your life? What are the things that mean the most to you?
If you're like most of us, it's your family and friends, your faith and your beliefs. And nothing else comes close. These are the things that mean the most. And they are absolutely irreplaceable.
You can lose your job - and get another one; maybe even a better one. You can lose your money - and find a way to make some more; maybe a lot more. You can lose your home, your car and all of your other material possessions - and you'll eventually find a way to replace them all. Sure, it hurts when you lose these things. But they can be replaced over time.
However, you can never replace the people and things that matter most.
"What really matters is what you do with what you have." Shirley Lord
The people you hold close give your life flavor, enhancing virtually every aspect of your life. Without your family and friends, your life would lose its spark, its verve and its luster. These people provide power and strength when you need a boost. They provide comfort and assurance when you're down. And only through them - and with them - can your life gather meaning.
Your faith gives provides a resonating richness and depth. It gives you a reason to get up when you're knocked down; it gives you the power to keep going when things aren't going your way. It provides a renewed sense of hope when hope is all but lost. With faith, there's nothing you cannot do. Without it, there's nothing worth doing. Your faith is your rock.
Last but certainly not least are the beliefs that are at your very core. These fundamental principles provide the basis for everything you think, say and do. They make you who you are - and what you'll ultimately become. They guide you. They comfort you. They bolster you.
They ARE you.
None of us can thrive without all three of these integral components working together. One or two won't do, you've got to have all three.
"When you believe in something, you can move mountains." Isaac Stern
Without your family and friends, what's really left? Who'd be around when you need a shoulder to cry on? Who would you share life's most cherished moment with? If you ever lose the people who matter most, you lose one of life's greatest treasures.
Without faith, you are nothing. Your faith is your foundation. It provides shelter during life's most turbulent storms. It provides support when you think you're too weak to continue. Without your faith, your life would instantly become empty, hollow and devoid of purpose.
Your beliefs are what you're all about. You are your beliefs - and your beliefs are you. If you compromise your beliefs, even for a few fleeting moments, you toss away your dignity. And forever surrender your honor.
I urge you; in fact, I beg you to strongly cling to the people and things that make your life special. Keep them close. Hold them tight. Embrace them with all of your heart. And never, ever, ever let them go.
The Bottom Line: Treasure the people and things that matter most in your life.
