We had a death in our family over the weekend. It was expected because this person was elderly and sick.
I am reminded of the following:
Life is too short for Bulls**t.
But long enough to make things right. (Tweet that)
These words are easy to understand in our intellect but to take action on is nearly impossible. It takes a brave and courageous person to step out and up to making things right. Mostly it’s never done. We don’t want to go out of our comfort zone. We find reasons to resist and withhold ourselves from the world.
By the time a person is dying it’s too late usually because of fear, so setting things right is not on their mind. That is why we must make things right before death visits us.
Some simple ways to do that now is to:
Use kindness always.
Don’t argue with anyone.
Keep conversations uplifting.
Give hugs and kisses.
Say I love you, even if its hard to say.
Send silent good wishes and pure feelings.
Ask yourself this: Do I want to die with regrets about what I did not say?
If you said no then make every effort to set what needs to be set right in your life. You won’t regret it.
This is such a beautiful post with a (for lack of a better word) morose title. Thank you for the reminder to pivot my perspective when I have lost sight of what is important.
Thanks Glenn for all of your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed my blog.
You are doing good work on your blog too. Keep up the good work.
