Three deaths in the past month has made for a rough start to the year. Two were expected; both family members were older and had health problems, and in some ways it was a blessing. But we still miss them and weren’t ready to see them leave this earth.
The third death was totally unexpected. A neighbor and friend died of a sudden heart attack. Because she was close to my age, her death affected me the most.
When things like this happen, it makes you re-evaluate your life. If it had been me rather than her, what would I regret leaving undone?
I read recently that most people in nursing homes say they wish they’d taken more risks. It would be sad to get to the end of life and realize that while you were busy with mundane tasks, the important things of life passed you by.
What words or acts have you avoided saying or doing that you might someday regret? What dreams have you been putting off?
What were you put here on earth to do? Make that your first priority.
