How well you live comes down to how much you love. – Robin Sharma This quote struck deep into my heart. I’ve built up so many things in my head about what life is about, but it truly is this simple. Love. I used to think the purpose of life is about finding meaning, living a good life, making a contribution, and being content. I guess I wasn’t that far off.
