You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth.
- Shira Tehrani
This dovetails nicely with the scriptural idea of Psalm 90:12 "So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom."
We don't know the number of our days, the best we can hope to do is to live them in the pursuit of things worthwhile. God, wisdom, health, joy. It is far too easy to allow our precious days to be consumed by the tyranny of the urgent while completely missing the truly important. I'm trying this year to invest myself in the things that add to the width, depth and richness of my life. I want to live so that I die with no regrets.
