I ask myself that question each time I take my meds and vitamins. I ask myself that question when I try to get some exercise, whether it’s by taking a walk, riding my bike, or going to the gym. I stay healthy by remembering to find the time to do what I need to do to feed my soul, whether it’s going to the beach, reading a good book, enjoying nature, or sharing a romantic dinner with my partner.
I’m lucky to have a fulfilling career, to have such talented people to work with, and to have the support of so many wonderful family and friends. I try to remember to be grateful for the things I do have, and to not worry about those things which are beyond my control.
I strive to make a positive contribution to other people’s lives, just by taking the time to say hello, or by giving them a smile, or through the volunteer work that I do, because I know that someday it could be me on the receiving end, and I realize that even the smallest gift can make all the difference in the world to someone in need.
