“As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.” – Seneca
It’s a cliche to say life is short.
Yet, life is plenty long. If that is, we spend it intentionally.
At first glance, this quote can be interpreted as a means to fight back procrastination. Another interpretation is action in a different way. Instead of focusing on doing more, on accomplishing more… appreciate more. In a world where the norm is do more and more… it’s a step back. So that, we can take in the moments we have in front of us. So that we can focus on the quality of the most important parts of our lives, as opposed to being caught up in the “gold rush”.
If we can live with both intention and gratitude, life will be plenty long.
