Sunday Story…The Last Day
Years ago I had a poster (probably black light!) that went like this:
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Mine had a little flower next to it.
The idea was that you get to start everyday fresh and the decisions you make today should be based on your present and what you want in the future not your past. Blah, blah, blah
Maybe it should have said:
Today is the last day of the rest of your life.
If, at the end of today, you can say you fulfilled your purpose, that you told the people in your life the things you needed to tell them, that you did the things that really needed doing (probably not the laundry), then you might be able to say OKAY.
Have you told your stories? Have you cleaned up the “stuff” that’s holding you back? Have you moved closer to your goal(s)?
The question is simple:
Death may be the greatest invention of life. There is an end here. We will all meet it. There is no escaping.
So why are you living like you are going to live forever?
