A man risked his life by swimming through the treacherous riptide to save a youngster being swept out to sea. After the child recovered from the harrowing experience, he said to the man, “Thank you for saving my life.” The man looked into the boy’s eyes and said, “That’s okay, kid. Just make sure your life was worth saving.”
The greatest thing we have is life. Thousands of people go to mental hospitals every year and relinquish their lives to doctors and therapists. There are others who just survive rather than taking the responsibility of living out their life with a purpose. Make sure that your life is worth living.
Quote: “Do not lament that the times are bad; rather ask yourself what you can do to make them better.” – Thomas Carlyle
