I recently listened to the story of the talented artist who created the community art project "Before I die..." As a way to deal with the grief that she was facing in her life, she tranformed the side of a builiding into a giant chalkboard for others to share their thoughts.
The answers that came after those 3 dots were focused on the truth of life versus the thought of death. For most of us it is easy to get caught up in the day to day and forget about what's really important. As I have been contemplating my answer this week, it has helped me restore perspective on what matters most in my life. While time devoted to outward success has its place, time devoted to inner happiness and peace always needs to be the priority.
This week my thoughts are on the fullness of love that I have in my heart for all of the tiny miracles in my life.
Before I die...
I want to play with my grandchildren
I want to take my parents on vacation
I want to stop worrying about money
I want to help everyone I meet feel special, worthy & heard
How about you?
