One measure of your life is how you feel in each moment. To what degree do you experience positive emotions like joy, love, gratitude, and empathy? When you embrace every moment, you squeeze the most out of your experiences and live a life of greater joy and happiness. Seek circumstances and moments that create joy and memories. Even in tough times, like the loss of someone close to you, you experience love, and while sad, it can be a rich and positive emotion for your life.
