I heard that death makes us more reflective. I know this to be true. My mother passed away last month. I seem to be thinking about life differently. What’s really important? What do I want to accomplish? What’s the big picture?
Author Norman Cousins said, “Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
I must admit, I am cautious. I’m a planner. I like to get my ducks lined up, research every possibility before I make a move. At times I get caught up in the details and freeze. I want to take more risks, fear less and try new things.
I have made progress over the years. I moved, started a business and got a Saint Bernard! All things that took courage and pushed me out of my comfort zone. The puppy pushed us into a zone that is filled with fur, slobber and extreme affection.
I am committed to keep changing , continue trying new things and live life to the fullest. We all have a purpose. We all have gifts. We are all here to learn, teach, share, help and experience life!
