Life Lists

Life Lists refer to how we live our lives. These are different than Bucket Lists and top ten lists.

We may check off skydiving once as a completed item. It ends up being one less thing to do. Yes, it was amazing and gives us a sense of accomplishment. It also gives us memories. It makes us feel great at that moment in time. But, how we live our every day lives is something to consider as well.

The Hill List - The How I am going to Live my Life List

In the movie, Morgan Freeman told Jack Nicholson -- "Find the joy!"

From another movie- Serendipity - there came this inspiration in the form of a question - "You know the Greeks didn't write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died. Did he have Passion?"

We must each find our own way. We must each determine our own purpose. Our own reason for being. And live our lives accordingly. To live a life of fulfilment is to live a life of passion. Each of us must define this for ourselves and then define the daily actions, thoughts, and interations required in that pursuit.

Some may say that The purpose of life is the pursuit of happiness. However we must keep this in mind:

"Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness, it is generally the by-product of other activities." -Aldous Huxley
