On the way to something great!

journey.curved road

Welcome to a new adventure! “Measured Lives” was an idea born in my heart a few years ago and I’m thrilled to begin officially sharing what I believe will be an incredible journey of learning and living. The idea began developing when a former boss wrote on my performance evaluation, “Michelle’s words are measured, which means she thinks before she speaks.” I liked that because I want to be intentional–with my words and my actions.

I want what I say and do to have meaning and purpose and impact. I want my words and actions to come from core convictions of who I am and the reason I do what I do, defining my life, work, and relationships with others.

Life is measured in moments. When we speak and act and react, we are essentially creating little moments, when strung together build our life.  When we know who we are and why we do what we do, our moments are measured. We live on purpose. Intentionally. By design. Measured moments create a measured life.

I say, live in the moment.

I don’t know what this journey will become, but I believe it’s on the way to something great. I want to discover more about living a measured life and help others do the same; discover who they are and why they do what they do–to have a life of purpose, meaning, impact.

Since moments matter, how do you measure yours?

  1. Yes. I’ve been working on memorizing the book of James and that small epistle is packed full of weighty words and many in regard to the tongue. The words from our tongues can set ablaze a mighty forest. From it come blessing and cursing, but as James says, it ought not to be so. Kudos to measuredlives for challenging us to measure our words so that as we speak we may set hearts ablaze with hope rather than with heartache.

    • Joanne, thanks for the comment! You are spot on. Our words are so powerful; for good or harm, for blessing or cursing. Congrats on your commitment to memorization. What a great way to develop your heart so your words come from a place of love, peace, and joy you can share with others. Thanks for engaging with us here at measured lives.com!

      • Dearest Michelle,

        I appreciate how you measure your words to me. You are a great encourager! You bless me when you share your heart with me, for I know that you are sincere.

        I am very familiar with James and his exhortations about the tongue. There have been too many times in my life that I wished I could have sucked the words back in…….too late!

        I am excited about your future!



        • John, thank you! I appreciate your kind words. We all have words we wish we could suck back in, but the great thing is we get new opportunities to choose words that are beneficial the next time.

          Aren’t we all a work in progress?! I know I am.
