One of the biggest things I have learned from the passing of a dear family member is that we, I am not immortal. Why do we behave as if we are?
We are all mortal beings with an expiration date. That date can come at any moment.
As Drake said, "I'm not here for a long time, but I am here for a good time!"
So, I ask myself, have I lived fully?
My answer is No.
I realize that there were times that I may have taken life and people for granted. I have put things off until the "time was right", wasted time doing things that I really didn't enjoy, stressed/ worried over things that I have no control over, been lazy about work or projects, have made decisions based on what other people thought. The list goes on.
I know I am not alone.
I am sure you can add to this list.
As I reflect on the passing of my beloved family member, I am reminded to take time to reflect on what am I doing with my life, how am I serving my purpose, how am I serving the highest good. I ask, Am living purposefully? Am I living to my fullest potential?
These questions are so important.
However lately, I have been guided by these questions , "If I were to kick the bucket today, did I live fully? Is there something I wish I did or said? Did I enjoy life? Do I have any regrets?
I recommend you ask yourself these questions and see what your answers are. There is also one of my favorite courses to help guide you into identifying your answers and aligning your life to its Divine Purpose.. check it out here.
I leave with a quote from Steve Jobs
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”
