As is a tale, so is life:
not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.
-J.K. Rowling, shared by Stephanie in St. Louis, MO
Somebody should tell us,
right at the start of our lives,
that we are dying.
Then we might live life to the limit,
every minute of every day.
“Do it!” I say.
Whatever you want to do, do it now.
There are only so many tomorrows.
-Michael Landon, shared by Stephanie in West Des Moines, IA
I have two pieces of good news for you:
1. You’re living! I hope you can work extra diligently this week at taking deep breaths and noticing how all the good stuff in your life can help you enjoy life, and all the blechy stuff can help you grow.
2. You’re dying! It turns out that we are (wait for it….) mortal beings. And even though we don’t know precisely when we’re going to finish our earth-time….every day that passes is one day closer to our last day here.
If you’re all, “That doesn’t sound exactly like good news to me, Mr. Ripples Dude,”–well now, just hesh up and go back and re-read this week’s quotes. I believe that we are living our best lives when we are living in the moment AND at the same time there is a bit of urgency that we only have so many days to live out our adventures here.
So if you have something that you’ve dreamed about doing, GET TO IT, SISTER!!
