Having It All is an Attitude

We’re all searching for meaning in our lives. I see it every day in my interactions with the clients we work with and in my conversations with family and friends. We want to know that our lives matter, that we have a purpose.

Life is short, sometimes so short that we are overwhelmed by the reality of how little time we have. Instinctively, we know that we need to make every day count. We hear lots of talk about living life to the fullest, having no regrets, and remembering that tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. Yet, do we really take these words to heart in the way we live our lives on a daily basis?

I wish I could say the answer is yes for me, that I get it right every day. But I don’t. I struggle every day to “keep the main thing the main thing,” to remember our organizational mantra (and my personal mission) of focusing on “what matters most.”

These words ring true: “The secret to having it all is knowing you already do.” Having it all is an attitude. It’s about wanting what you have, about giving thanks every day for the people in your life and the many abundant blessings that are right in front of you.

Today I know that I have it all. Do you?
