It’s that time of year again to make your resolutions––to promise yourself that you will do whatever it takes to become a better version of yourself. And there is nothing wrong with setting goals and raising your standards for yourself. In fact, it’s one of the best things you can do to become the best person you can be. But instead of committing yourself to a lofty resolution that will fizzle out before mid-march, make this year the year you decide to live your life with a clearer direction and a purpose behind everything you do. Here are 3 things you should do to give your life more meaning.

Do what you love
Make sure you spend the next 12 months, and all of the months after that, devoted solely to pursuing whatever it is that makes you come alive. The best way to improve the world is to chase after whatever you’re passionate about. Love sports? Find a way to unite a community through a ball game. Love animals? Bring people together to help the animals in your area. Love kids? Give a voice and empower the children that need to be heard. Whatever you do, find meaning in every moment and fill your life with moments that remind you of the sweetness of life.
Follow your dreams
Most importantly, make this year the year you chase after your dreams fearlessly and relentlessly––because that’s really the only way to make them come true after all. Stop putting your dreams on the back burner and make them a priority every single day. Keep the vision for your life alive by making your dreams become your reality.
