Last month my nephew died of a massive heart attack -- on his 31st birthday.
As shockingly tragic as his passing was, we take heart knowing his life had been well-lived: he lived and taught in Korea, traveled the world, embraced his creativity, connected with people, and fulfilled his purpose during his very brief lifetime.
How many of us can say that we are living full lives?
A lifetime may seem long but is lived day by day. The wise thing to do is seize the opportunity that every moment presents us.
A full and fulfilled life arises from living each day wholeheartedly.
If you are just beginning this journey, then choose one or two of the above suggestions to practice every day. Be gentle with yourself in this process.
May you live this day and every day with heartfelt joy and gratitude.
