Making the Moment Meaningful: a presentation on living meaningfully
Presenter: Dana LaMon

This life is the only one you have, and you've got to make the best of it. You can choose to let circumstances and events dictate the course of your life, but in doing so, you miss your one opportunity to shape the world.

At some point in time every person who is aware of his or her surroundings yearns to be significant-- that is, to live with meaning. Dana LaMon offers this innovative approach: Meaningfulness is not something you search for; it is something you make. You can make each moment of your life meaningful if you live within these parameters:

There is purpose in your being here and being now.

The value of your life is most accurately measured by the impact you have on the lives of others.

Self-development must be an ongoing process; it will allow you to adapt to your changing environment.

Your actions, reactions, and interactions define who you are.
