Reality bites

Sunday, June 17, 2012

I found out one of my cousin's passed away yesterday. Separate from the sadness of this for me (I am very glad for my cousin who is no longer suffering from illness...) it just brings to mind how human we all are. Our bodies are vessels and how often do I treat mine the way it should be treated? Not nearly as often as I should! There are a number of thoughts that flood the mind with that general concept.

I read somewhere of someone trying to have seven nights of doing right. I make excuses for not doing right 4 hours straight - and there are people, like my cousin, who won't have another opportunity to try to get another minute of right.

Reality is biting me right now.

    My sympathy to you. I know it is hard to lose someone. And I also know that we have to live each day as best we can so that we are creating the life we want.

    I am sorry for your loss. Sometimes I am waiting for the "right time" to take a trip, apologize to someone, lose weight, learn to dance, etc. But you are correct, it is important to do right/what you can, today. Thank you for the reminder to make the best use of our time right now.

    The memory of your cousin and reality dictate that you do not lose yourself.
Your testimony helps us sparkpeople to not lose ourselves and living intensely the reality.
Friendly best wishes for today and tomorrow.
