When you are on your death bed, what are the things in your life that you’re going to be most proud, happy, and satisfied with?
Will it be your house, cars, designer furniture?
Or will it be your adventures, experiences, and connections?
What if you were given the news that you only had 24 hours to live?
Would you be satisfied with what you cultivated within your life?
Would there be things you wished you had done with your life but never got around to?
Are there places you wish you had visited?
Conversations you wished you had?
Talents you wished you had fostered?
People you told you loved?
Conflicts that you wished you’d let go of?
People always seem to wait til “later” to get what they want from life. Or there’s an excuse for NOT doing what you want in life. Think about the fragility of life, and the privilege of having this blank slate ahead of us.
When it’s your time (hopefully old, and after a good long life), will you be happy with the mastery of your own ship of life?
Cultivate your OWN life NOW. Plant your seeds. Let them harvest. Leave this world with a smile when it’s your time, because you know you did the very best with your gift of life.
