It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

It’s not the years in your life that count – It’s the life in your years. Abraham Lincoln has been credited with this quote, but it’s not clear who actually wrote it. That said, I think that the sentiment is one that many have expressed over the years for one reason – it’s true. Life is precious. We are beings with no real answers about why we are here and what we are supposed to be doing. Many of us have religious and scientific beliefs about the answers, but no one really knows. What we know for sure though is that life is precious, fragile and up to us.

Some of the most influential people in history have been those with short experiences on this planet. Mattie Stepanek – a frequent guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show who passed at only 14 from a rare disorder – wanted to be remembered as “a poet, a peacemaker, and a philosopher who played.” Ryan White died at only 18 after contracting HIV from a blood transfusion and becoming a spokesperson for an entire community. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Heath Ledger, Tupac Shakur, Georges Seurat, Vincent van Gogh, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and so many other artists passed early, but left their stamp on this world before going. It’s not the amount of time you’re here, it’s truly what you do with it.

One of my favorite reminders of this sentiment is the song “I Lived” by OneRepublic (below). Give yourself the gift of bookmarking it so that you can listen when you need/want to or purchase it and keep it with you. Live the life that you were given to the fullest so that when you’re at the end, you can say that you lived.
