CJ’s Daily Message: The Dash Between Your Birth Date & Death
Today I visited my parents grave site, which will also be my final resting place as well. While pulling weeds and killing ants, I was drawn to the family headstone, in particular the dash between my parent's birth date and the date they expired. I just sat there and stared at those dashes. There were only two as I am lucky enough to still be creating my dash. I was thinking about my 'dash' up till now, am I happy with it? Or do I need to make some changes for the forth quarter of my life?
What do you want your dash to say about your life when the time comes?
I want mine to represent a life full of happiness, love, family and special friends. I want it to represent a life rich in abundant blessings. I don't want my dash to represent a guy that woke up before sunrise to go do a job he hated. I don't want to be remembered as the guy who walked into a fountain at the mall because he had his head buried in a phone. Or leave behind a legacy of anger and hate on social media because the world didn't always agree with ME ME ME.
I want my dash to scream LIFE. After all, that dash represents the 'living' part of your journey on this earth. LIVE! Live BIG! Live HAPPY! Live, love and laugh. Laugh a lot. Make every precious moment of your dash, count!
Don't let your dash die before you do.
