What’s It Worth to You?

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.  — Martin Luther

Time…what’s it worth to you? Money…what’s it worth to you? Love…what’s it worth to you? Do you ever stop to consider the worth of things like time, money, and love? What about people, relationships, and experiences?

We rush through our days trying to accomplish myriad tasks, hoping to mark off our long to-do lists, and make progress. Often, in the midst of our busyness, life passes us right on by. What’s your life worth to you? After all, you have only one life.

There are no guarantees how long that life will last either. You could be here today and gone from this earth tomorrow. What will be the worth of that overstuffed to-do list then? Who will care about how much you earned, or what you accomplished on your climb up the corporate ladder?

What will count is how well and how fully you lived your one, wild precious life. What counts are the family and friends you would leave behind. That is your legacy, the thing of great worth. Yes, money is a necessary tool of life, but time is so much more valuable, and love is the most valuable of all.

Think about it. What do you have to lose? If you said nothing, you are right. If you said everything, you are right. Be present. Live. Love. Be thankful for your life and those who share it with you. Plant your apple tree.
