What does one life matter? It matters a great deal.
What will you do today – how will you think, speak, feel, and act – that will show you care about the meaning of your life? A legacy is built in every moment. Do you want to die as a priestess, a parent, a person of presence, or do you want to die as one caught up in tales of right or wrong, of injury or passion, of disappointment or victory? Make a choice. Today. Then live.
Live to the best of your ability right now. Live as bravely as you can, as tenderly as you can, as fiercely and kindly and with as much internal honesty as you can. Tomorrow you will be able to do even more. This is called practice. Practice builds the foundation of our lives and then life becomes the practice.
