I just turned 50 a few weeks ago.
Here are the four most important things I’ve picked up along the way:
- In the end, all that matters is our connection to other people.
- The full depth of happiness is never reached until it’s shared.
- Live your life in such a way that if anyone were to speak ill of you, no one would believe them.
- Happiness is like fire: it multiplies and gains abundance without diminishing the source.
Of course, none of these are my original revelations. They’re timeless observations articulated by bright minds. But these are the ones that have resonated the most to me. And become part of me.
