YOU are living...but are you ALIVE?

You are living but are you ALIVE?

Do you need to read that twice to understand it?

Does it sound too simple?

Does it make you think?

I read this book recently, The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer, and one of the last chapters was on Contemplating Death.  Now I know you may be thinking the worst…but when I started reading this chapter and the beautiful words that were written on the pages, I cried.  Because it made me think….Am I actually living my life right now or am I

  • Waiting for the perfect moment.

  • Waiting for the right time.

  • Waiting til my kids go to college?

  • Waiting til I get a certain degree?

  • Waiting til I have this amount of money?

So I want to ask you…What if today was your last day?

Would you be living the life you desire? Or would you panic and want to do a 1,000 things that you have been waiting to do.  I know it isn’t easy to think about and no one wants to think about dying because we all think we are going to live these long lives and we have TIME…but what if you don’t.

None of us know when our time is up.

In the book, 5 Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware, there are 5 themes that came up when she talked to those who knew they were dying.  If you haven’t seen these I wanted to include them because they aren’t necessarily hard things. They are simple things that can be changed starting today.

  1. I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

  2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.

  3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

  4. I wish I’d stayed in touch with my friends.

  5. I wish I’d let myself be happier.

Do any of these resonate with you?

Life is worth living and it is a gift…each and every day.

Mother time is not on our side. You can never get back your days and your hours.

So, how can you make them count?

  • How can you be a little braver?

  • How can you love a little better?

  • How can you forgive a little faster?

  • How can you take action on your dreams sooner?

  • How can you communicate better?

  • How can you connect deeper?

  • How can you live a little truer to yourself?

  • How can you practice being more instead of doing more?

How can you be more ALIVE everyday?
