where you invest your love, you invest your life

Distance running is both amazing and terrifying in the sense that it gives you time to think (/be left alone with your thoughts for too long, depending upon the day).  My playlist for today was Mumford & Sons' album 'Sigh No More' and a line from one of the songs read:

In these bodies we will live,
In these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love,
You invest your life

It got me thinking about where I'm investing my love/life--where I'm really investing it instead of the obscured truths I like to tell myself.  If someone were to record my daily activities, what would they deduce from the ways that I spend my time?  Would I be content with that conclusion?  What would I do to change it?

It's definitely food for thought.
