It’s time to find meaning… it’s what we live for.
But here’s the thing, meaning doesn’t have to come from that “one” thing. Meaning can come from small things and those experiences will add up bring more meaning than you imagined.
Here are some tips to make everything more meaningful.

By sharing stories and experiences you may bring meaning to others as they are included in what you have done.
If you aren’t able to share with another immortalize it by writing about it: try keeping a journal.
Take Your Time
Things can have more meaning when we spend more time reflecting on them, taking them in and enjoying them.
Slow down enjoy the experience; whether that means just taking the time to smell the flower, touch the petals. Listening to the sounds and looking at the sights. Take the time to savor every morsel of life and it will all taste that much richer. Look around as you walk and notice what’s around you. Take time to smile, make eye contact.
Small things will bring you meaning and even greater you may have impacted the life of another without even knowing. The smile may have warmed a pained heart. A simple hello maybe he only kind voice that was spoken that day.
The little things truly matter and can change the path of your life and of others. You are worthy, you bring meaning. This is part of living your best life daily. It’s how you change your life… one step… one day, week, until our life is full of meaning.
