102 Powerful Ways To Create A Life Worth Living

If you have never heard the Garth Brooks song, “If tomorrow never comes”, I suggest you give it a listen. The song is thought-provoking and will leave you wondering about the ramifications of tomorrow not coming.   

The song is a mere 259 words but the impression it leaves is immeasurable. The message is simple but the meaning deep. Tomorrow is not guaranteed and each time we go to sleep at night we may not wake. 

  • No sunrise to illuminate the world
  • No coffee to light our senses
  • Gone is the unforgettable moment of seeing our partners as they wake
  • Lost are the moments that we take for granted

Each time I listen to it, I internalize its message a little bit more.

At this point, my son is 19 months old. His birth signified great personal change and a shift in perspective. As I listened to this song, I wondered if I didn’t wake tomorrow, would he have learned enough from me in our short time together. Certainly, he would’ve learned about love, laughter and what it means to be alive but I struggle to say that at his young age, I would’ve had the opportunity to impart as much wisdom about life as I would’ve liked to. 

And in that, answers a burning question I have.

No, I haven’t equipped him with a foundation to create a life worth living.

I sought out a way to change this answer. For him and as a by-product, for you, I have created a list of 102 Ways To Create a Life Worth Living. This list has changed my life. While most seem obvious, I want you to think about the last time you thought about any one of these. 

For him, I hope that as our time together passes, I can expose him to my personal beliefs and in turn, he exposes them to others. If, as I said, I don’t wake before I get that chance, I hope he keeps this list close.
