Did you know how to Live before you Die??


I went to a “Celebration of Life” of a friend at the start of the year. Her daughter read excerpts from her diary. One of the things that struck me was when she wrote “Everybody dies but not everybody lives.” We all know that but we don’t really pay attention. We are so used to multitasking and juggling things everyday… it seems the 24 hours we have is not enough. We don’t have time to nurture our relationships, to give back to community or even for ourselves. Our excuse? We have bills to pay! It goes on and on and on.




While I was listening to the eulogy, I had an epiphany. By the time I left the chapel I made a promise to myself that I’ll make a conscious decision to live a “meaningful life” and make an extra effort to do stuff that scares me… I want to feel my spirit shake. 🙂


Steve Jobs is inspirational, no denying it…  but Bill Gates (and his wife) is someone I’d love to emulate (besides Oprah). They live their life committed to service to humanity. And that’s what living is all about… in my book at least 🙂

    1. You got that right! 🙂
      Guilty as charged… but when certain things happen, like the death of a loved one..it becomes a wake up call.
      Now, I just make a more conscious effort to be mindful. I feel like I was given a new lease on life without being diagnosed with anything major, unlike some people who need a “death sentence” before they do anything with their lives and start working on their bucket lists.

      Carpe diem!
