 We are always doing something, talking, reading, listening to the radio, planning what next. The mind is kept naggingly busy on some easy, unimportant external thing all day."

- Brenda Ueland

"Children are so afraid of us because they know we may try to keep them from making their biggest and most important mistakes."

-Brenda Ueland
"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."

-T S Eliot


"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

"I'm going home," was his answer to the nurse when she asked him why he wanted his shoes. She then asked, 'How are you going to get home?'  "Intuition," was his answer.

He passed shortly after the conversation.  He knew, he knew where he was going, he was not afraid, and knew he'd get there. How great is that?

He was and is a wonderful human who, at 90, knew it was his time. He was at peace, not afraid, and ready to go home. His work was done.

Me, I'm not ready. I think I have a lot more to do here. Yet, at the same time, when called, I'll go home. I'll go home knowing the joy of those waiting for me and heartache of those left behind. Bittersweet.

Yet, if you are reading this, you are still here for a reason, there is a purpose, and a value to you and your life. So, live that value, live that purpose and be fulfilled.  Be joyous. Be engaged. Be involved.

We'll know when it's time to go home. In the meantime, there is work to be done, people to see, and friends and relatives to enjoy.

When you go home, what will you tell them that you did, you accomplished, and are proud of? How long will the story be, and how high will you be able to hold your head?  If your story is not all you want it to be today, then change.

Change the story, do more, be more, and engage more. You have the time to create a wonderful story while here so take advantage of it. Here, now, today.

Do you fear death? If so, what are you afraid of?  Judgement? Hell?  The reality is, we will all die an earthly death. It's part of the deal, and we can't escape it.

Let's embrace life and live it so that we do have a good story, and the judgment, if any, will be good and positive. It's our choice, our choice to make right now, today.

None of us want to leave our loved ones and certainly not early. So, eat right, exercise, take care of yourself and don't take unnecessary risks. Smile and laugh as that extends life and the enjoyment of life.
