We all know you need to eat well and exercise to be healthy and fit. We should vote if we want our voice to be heard. We need to work to earn money, to put food on our table and a roof over our head. But those things should not be the only focus of our life. Honestly, there's a lot more to life than that.
So let's talk about that, the stuff that really matters.
What do you want your greatest achievement to be? How do you want to be remembered? What will be your legacy? That degree? That corporate job? Your big house? Your fancy car? Your bank account? That dream vacation? Your "beach body" that you parade on stage? How about those six pack abs?
I don't want any of that, nor any other material thing that I can't take with me to heaven. What good does any of that do anyone? Really. Think about it.
Think about how many wealthy, famous, fit people you've heard of who were so miserably unhappy that they killed themselves or killed someone else because they were really miserable and desperately lost. They weren't happy because they were living for all the wrong reasons. Vain glory. I don't want that to be my legacy, and I'm sick to death of everyone's obsession for the perfect "beach body." It's so vain and has absolutely no eternal value for anyone.
I want something more, something better, something that really makes a difference in another persons life. I want my legacy to be the fact that I taught my son to read and write and I taught him from the word of God. Since then he's been an honor student who graduated college with a Bachelor's degree in Math, and he is now serving in ministry. He's a wise godly young man, everything I hoped and prayed he would be, to God be the glory. I want my legacy to be that I encouraged people and enriched their lives. Like the time I helped a young Marine save his career by guiding him back to health physically but more importantly spiritually by showing him his value in the eyes of God. I want to be remembered as a loving devoted wife and mother, a good friend, and simply a woman who despite many flaws purposed to live, learn and teach the greatest message of all, love deeply. (1 Peter 4:8).
The main focus of your life should be the greatest commandment; loving God and loving your neighbor as yourself. Thats the stuff you take with you into eternity. It is your character, your integrity and the love that you showed to God and to the people he put in your life that you will give an account for when you stand before God at the end of this life.
I'm devoting the rest of my life to sharing the experience and wisdom that God has given me, from my failings and my successes, and using them to point people to Jesus. He created us. He has a purpose for each of us and he wants us to fulfill our purpose and live a life of significance that brings value to others. So many are not living that way. So many people are lost, hopeless and defeated because they just live for themselves. They're not serving or investing in another person so they have no fulfillment in their life.
I'm living, writing and serving for a purpose and a person greater than me. I'm devoting my time and efforts to investing in other people's lives, helping them know their value and purpose in life, and live accordingly. It's my hearts desire to set people free from their self sabotaging habits and limiting beliefs and encourage, equip and empower them live the life God intends for them. Happier, healthier, and more fulfilled. I can think of no greater satisfaction or achievement than that and it's value is eternal.

I'm looking forward to serving you and helping you discover and live fully the purpose for which you were designed.
God's richest blessings to you and yours,
