I was having a conversation about relationships, life and how fleeting it is. This got me thinking about the dash in between. The dash I’m referring to is the one between the year of your birth and death which is written on your tombstone. Seems to me this dash is incredibly important.
“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years”~ Abraham Lincoln
When we come into this world it’s usually a joyous occasion and when we pass on, depending on the type of life you lead, it can be either joyous or sorrowful. The in between bit defines the type of life we lived and when you really, really think about it that’s a big deal!
We have a finite amount of time on this planet, with a finite amount of time to do all things that we want to do. When I say things it doesn’t only mean the stuff on your proverbial bucket list but also who you are as a person. What impact did you leave on the world or those nearest to you? How did you treat people?
“The key to immortality is live a life worth remembering”~ Bruce Lee
If you were to look back on your life at this moment, would you be pleased? Or are there things still left to be done? I know for me that there’s still work (hence the title of the blog) and it is a challenge but then what else can you do?
Be well peeps.
