With all the tragedy that has gone on in the world recently, it’s no wonder so many of us are taking stock and asking ourselves the million dollar questions. What would I do if I was only given a few more days, weeks, months?
The reality is, not everyone gets this chance – but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be asking ourselves the same questions. I ask you to take 30min out of your day and ask yourself these questions:
1/ What is the line you want on the front page of your funeral booklet?
2/ What is said in the speeches at your funeral by a family member, a workmate and someone whose life you touched?
3/ If money was not a problem (the #1 thing for holding us back), what would you do tomorrow and the day after etc?
4/ Is there one passion or dream that you have never fulfilled that is sitting in your soul waiting to burst out? If so, what is it?
5/ When was the last time you felt crazy with happiness?
We’ll do more work on these questions later, but for now, please just take a moment to remember those that are not getting this opportunity. Some of us are so blessed to be as we are. Not deep in the turmoil of war, or stricken by the angry hand of Mother Nature or even repressed by our sex, colour, race or location.
I for one am thankful.
