When I think of making a living, I think of doing what you have to do to survive. It is all about paying the bills. Making a living involves finding a job that pays you enough to live at what ever level you find acceptable. It is about the pay check and the benefits. In other words, making a living is about what you get.
Making a life is something different. Life is about people. Life is about how much of yourself you can give away. Last week I posted a quote by CS Lewis.
Nothing that you have not given away will ever be really yours.
These two thoughts are very closely linked. You won’t find life without giving and you won’t really have anything unless you give it away.
Instead of just making a living this week, work on making a LIFE…Give yourself away!
