You probably don’t want to read this…
Ok, you’ve been warned.
You’re still here?
Well, today I want to talk about death.
For most of us, this is not a “cool” topic.
I’ve been thinking a lot about death lately, and here’s the reason.
One of my best friend’s mother passed away this week.
She was 86 and she had a great life. She was one of the most generous souls I’ve ever known.
I knew her from my spiritual community here in NJ.
She was small but feisty; sweet but had a tough bark when she got mad. Mostly she was kind, loving, and supportive.
She’d lost one grown son and an infant baby in crib death. She’d been through a divorce.
She had another son who survived and she’d adopted a girl when she thought that she couldn’t have any more children.
She’d had some ups and downs, but she kept going. She was very active in her community and with her grandkids.
I’d ask her how she was doing and some days she’d say:” Horrible! All my friends have died, my body hurts, and I can’t breathe.
Then she’d say: But I’m still here and I’m still kicking. She told it like it was.
And we loved her for it.
I didn’t realize how many other people she’d helped until she passed this week.
The entire 60 minute meeting on Tuesday, the day after she’d gone, was filled with funny, loving stories about her and how she’d helped so and so and so and so.
She lived her life out loud, imperfectly, but from a loving place.
We’re all still reeling from the loss, and we’re rallying around her kids and grandkids, grateful for our tight knit community.
So what does this have to do with you?
Well, I want to ask yourself: how is your life going?
Are you happy with where you’re putting your time and attention?
Are you taking risks in your business and in your life?
Are you giving back?
We all know we’re going to die. We know that we don’t know when exactly that it’s going to happen.
It’s easy to sort of forget about it.
Personally I’ve never been afraid of dying….I’ve had my butt kicked by life a few times, but death has never scared me.
What scares me is that if I get to the end, and I feel like I didn’t use it all up.
I want to give and live and be completely used up when I die.
I want people to say: “She gave it everything she had. She made a difference everywhere she went.”
That’s what I want.
I don’t care about clothes or jewelry or big houses. (I would like to live close to a beach at some point)
I want to know that I helped other people, that I gave back. That my life made a difference for at least a few people.
That’s what’s important to me.
At this point. I’m at least half way through…maybe less.
So I’ve been reflective this week and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.
My question to you is, are you ready to go for it?
Are you ready to stop hiding out and step into your spotlight?
Have you been playing small and you know that it’s time.
It’s time to step it up because we need you.
The world needs you.
Not next year or next month or even tomorrow.
We need you now.
There’s a lot of stuff going on and we need your special voice,
your unique take on things that no one else has on this planet.

Here’s to you and the difference that you make in the world.
I can’t wait to connect with you!
