“Intentional living is the art of making our own choices before others' choices make us.” - Richie Norton
Life is too short.
Live life to the fullest.
Seize the day.
We bandy about these proclamations but how often do we really mean them? Consumed by the realities of our responsibilities, days, months and even years can pass before we even think to "live our best life".
I was reminded of the fragility of life reading the story of Brittany Maynard, a terminally ill 29-year-old woman who has chosen to die with dignity. She is living her final weeks in the company of loved ones, fulfilling some of her life dreams and will pass away on November 1.
She is a reminder to all of us to wake up. This really could be your last day. Don't throw your moments away.
My thoughts are with Brittany and her family. I admire their strength and courage at this difficult time. I hope that they cherish these meaningful days and find peace.
