“May you live all the days of your life.” – Jonathan Swift
What does it mean to live all the days of your life?
Swift indirectly highlights the importance of living each day of each lifetime.
All our days are the composite of time that add up to a lifetime.
Each of us decides what to do within each day that we live.
As each day passes, we aim to grow in a greater understanding of life as a philosophy that we create for ourselves.
When I came across this quote from Swift, I was initially struck by the simplicity of his universal wish.
But a deeper look reveals his desire to encourage us to look more deeply into our own lives for meaning and fortitude, each day at a time.
I hope you carry Swift’s wish into 2019 and beyond.
