I woke up to the shocking news of the death of a dear neighbor last night. He was 61 and playing with his beagle when a heart attack struck and took him from the world. He will be deeply missed by myself and many, many others.
It is such a sobering smack upside the head when death reminds us that time marches on for us all and while we never know how much time is left, each day that passes is one less day we have to live.
One of my greatest motivators to continue this journey has been to reclaim, celebrate and fire up my life, to live it to the fullest with as much joy and passion as possible. This is one of the greatest tenets of SparkPeople as well and why I love this community as much as I do.
So I ask myself and others here: how have you lived your passion today? What fires have you stoked in yourself, in others? Regardless of our age, the clock is ticking...
