For a great many reasons, the following is really reverberating with me today:
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
No, I am not dying. Just working up the courage to do something rather dramatic with our lives. Time to stop being scared about the what-if’s and just do what we really want to do.
