Gosh, we’re all living so hard!! It’s as if we can feel our white hair growing. And this is a good thing.
My stepfather passed away in December, and his life was one well-lived. He did everything he wanted to do. He didn’t let things like confusion and distraction get in his way. He clearly knew what he wanted and he lived it. My mother lived it with him. She says that on her deathbed, my stepfather’s life will pass before her eyes. But she considers the years she spent with my stepfather blessed years, and has no regrets.
Upon your deathbed, whose life will pass before your eyes? If you don’t create the life you want, what will you have spent your whole life creating instead?
These are the moments in which your old reality can become your new one. These are the moments you must grab hard between your hands and wring the juice from.
We don’t know what will happen next—Haiti, global warming, global cooling, a depression—but we can know who we will choose to be when it happens.
It’s short, people. Amp it Up!!
