5. Listen. To God, to others. Your child or sibling rambling on about something that may not mean much to you. It means the world to them. Listen to the lonely cashier, to the birds, to the silence. Speak less. Just listen.
10. Explore something. Alone, or with someone. Take pictures, make notes, blog about it. It doesn’t have to be the other side of the planet, the other side of the country, or even the other side of town. Walk that trail you’ve been meaning to for years. Look at that new antiques and flea market. Examine your backyard more closely.
Lastly, savor every moment and every person. You do not know how long you will have them, and they do not know how long they will have you.
Make your life count.
