I’m participating in a program right now called Unique Genius. Aaron, the creator of the program just sent me an email about his girlfriends close friend who just passed.
His girlfriend luckily got a chance to say goodbye and hear some of his parting words:
“All you have are the memories and experiences and love….”
It’s a powerful message to make us realize how fragile life really is. This is typically how I respond when doubt starts to creep into my mind. When that “voice” starts telling me to follow the routine and forget about my dreams. When that voice appears, I kick it’s ass by asking myself “What will I like to remember when I’m lying on my death bed?”
It’s a powerful thing to ask yourself. A powerful thing to confront yourself with and really think about. Will you be happy that you stuck it out in a job you hated just for money? Or that you let that dream slip because you were to scared to try? Or just that you simply didn’t show enough love to the people who loved you. Were all going to die someday and I want to know in myself that I tried everything I could to work at something I enjoy. To love the ones who love me. To help people. To help the world.
That’s really all that matters in the end. The memories, the experience, and the love.
Try not to let “crap” get in the way of these things. Try to reconnect daily with what’s important, the love of yourself and the love of others. Create awesome relationships and create amazing experiences and adventures that you will remember forever.
Who is someone you could email, call or write to express how much you appreciate them, have learned from them or love them?
I hope you all felt a little heart warmed by this post. I did when I read the email and so I thought I would share it. Have a good night 🙂
