Star light, star bright, The first star I see tonight; I wish I may, I wish I might, Have the wish I wish tonight. ~ Anonymous
Many moments of pensiveness come after losing both parents in a very short period of time. My folks meant the world to me and the family. The finality of death takes a little bit of time to sink in then reality strikes. Life and the family dynamics have been irrevocably changed.
The other day I was pondering whether our souls “live for an eternity.” Everyone has their own opinion on that. But, if we do live on, in some form for eternity then I say it stands to reason “Life on earth is but a small stitch in time.”
So, if life on this planet is short in the scheme of things, we need to make the best of the time we’ve got. That thought makes me want to challenge myself to live up to my full potential and continue to reach for my dreams. And it reminds me not to settle because something is too hard, too uncomfortable, too daunting or there are too many obstacles. “Let go and let God,” I say to myself. It’ s what I did when I wrote my memoir “Gift of a Lifetime: Finding Fulfilling Things in the Unexpected.”
What’s been your experience living with that kind of approach ? Send me a quick comment!
