It’s Really Tough

Know what’s really tough? Having people you love grow old and sick. That’s part of life, I know. I’m a mortician’s daughter. Life and death have been a regular part of my life since birth. That doesn’t take the sting out of witnessing the process of people you love getting closer to the end of their life.

Acknowledging this always brings back the fact that life is short. Even if you live 100 years, that’s a short time in the whole scheme of things. Deciding to make life count should happen everyday.

  • How can you make life count today?
  • What do you take for granted that you will honor as special and wonderful in your life as you move through each minute of it today?

Write for 20 minutes. Practice writing and being grateful for life all at the same time!
