Your Death Notice

“You don't get to choose how you're going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you're going to live. Now.”  -- Joan Baez.

If you learned today that you had 5 months to live, what would matter to you? 

Would you listen differently to your child?  Hug him or her more?

Would you turn off the TV?

Leave the dishes in the sink to play cards with your family before bed?

Would you want to have some deeper conversations with your children? 

Make sure they really felt the depth of your love for them? 

Share the wisdom you’ve learned about what really matters?

We’re rarely lucky enough to get this kind of warning.  But whether you have 5 years or 50 ahead, your life will be over before you know it.  So consider this your official notice. Why wait?

How do you want to spend the time you have left?
