I’m reading an excellent book, “The Mystery of Children: What Our Kids Teach Us About Childlike Faith,” by Mike Mason. One line just jumped off of the page today…
“Is the quality of your life such that your children come to you to find out what your secret is?”
Hmm. That’s truly something to contemplate. You can easily replace the word “children” with coworker, spouse, neighbor, sibling, etc. Notice the word “quality.” That word can mean so many different things for each person. I guess the common denominator is happiness. Are you living life with a level of happiness that makes others ask “why” or “how”?
The other night on our way home Jason and I saw a dad pushing his little boy (probably just under two-years-old) in a stroller. The boy was literally sitting at the edge of his seat, looking all around, taking everything in. It was noticeable how eager he was. He was truly absorbing life… again, demonstrating pure happiness.
Take a few minutes to assess how you are (or aren’t) demonstrating the quality of your life.
Are others trying to figure out your secrets?
