The purpose of this blog is to inspire us all to live a significant life.

I am constantly challenged by people who have a positive impact on others by consistently making wise and courageous choices about the things in life that really matter. These are the ones who, at the end of their lives, will be able reflect on a significant personal journey and whose funerals will be a celebration of a life well lived and a legacy well left for the succeeding generations to follow.

None of the people featured in this blog are perfect. They appear only because at least one of the choices they have made has positively inspired me. I share their stories and reflect on their choices in the hope that you will be inspired to live a significant life.
