The Perspective Shift of Death on What it Means to Live
I am coming to you with a slightly somber frequency after hearing the very sad news of the passing of one of our clients.
When you compound that news with the time of year, it’s not the holiday season and the shock, it can create lots of emotional turmoil. Right now, our hearts go out to the clients and families dealing with this shock.
My Own Moment With Death
This brings me back to my own foster mothers passing on the first of December. And even though she was sick, I wasn’t quite ready to face her mortality. And losing my mum at the age of 19 was my biggest gift in facing mortality.
It was a massive lesson regarding how I spend my time, the vision for my life, and what I will and will not tolerate. Even to give me permission to have the desires I have. I can attribute so much of that to early loss in my life.
What Are You Waiting For?
Today, I am reminded of the frustration of watching people live their lives as though they will go on forever and that you can put off what you want and your visions until next month, next year, or until you retire.
The truth is, you don’t know you have that time. I look at those things and think, why are you wasting time waiting? When you’re fit and healthy, it’s easy to forget how much of a gift this is, and when it’s taken away, we have nothing.
You Have a Responsibility!
I believe you and I have a responsibility to live now, be present now, and not wait to do the thing that you know you truly desire to do, the thing you were born to do. Because you do not know when your timeline ends.
What better reason do you need? In fact, you owe it to yourself.
How open are you to receiving and giving love so that if your timeline is shorter, you can go knowing that you have truly lived and have left a legacy?
Listen to the full episode now to hear my invitation for you now and in the New Year and beyond for your life on this earth.
I would be utterly delighted and grateful beyond words if you would (if you’re not already)
