I mentioned before that I don’t believe in luck but I do believe in the power of choice. I believe that at every moment of our lives we can choose to be genuinely honest with ourselves and those around us. The more we choose to live genuinely, the greater fulfillment we get from our lives and the closer we get to living our life purpose (“There’s no higher purpose than service to others” – Dan Millman).
The passing of a close uncle of mine this week has left me with a sense of loneliness. Loneliness that he has moved on but happiness for having witnessed him live a genuinely loving life. A life purpose fulfilled.
At times of grief, families and friends get together and for a few moments all congregate for the purpose of remembering a life. This can for some however, be a time of sorrow and regret.
I read an article this week from an absolutely fantastic magazine called Ode Magazine called “Buy Now, Pay Later…Be grateful for all life’s second chances.” I have attached it here:
The message of the article told me to never feel like it’s too late to live genuinely, to listen to the voice inside you and to act upon it when heard. There is much in the world we cannot explain and there is much more we probably cannot fix however we can choose to try, in whatever way we can – this is what I tell myself tonight.
