Life’s Change Agent

17 May

Ill never get out of this world alive

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.

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 one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it, and that is how it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life.
It’s life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.

    So true Megan! When little things bother me I think what if I knew I was going to die in 6 months would I really get upset? Our priorities change too. We know what is truly important too! Relationships and our faith. Xxx
