“Someday. One day. When. If. Then it’s over. When are we going to wake up and realize this is life?” — Kerry and Chris Shook
On your tombstone there will be two dates. On mine I hope it will be something like this 1961 – 2061. It might look like this 1961 – 2009. The first date and the last date are two things you have no control over and really don’t matter. All that really matters is the dash in the middle.
“So when your eulogy is being read…
With your life’s actions to rehash…
Would you be proud of the things they say…
About how you spent your dash?”
I’ve tweeted this really short and really inspirational video multiple times. Recently a reader suggested I use it for ideas. I decided I would just link to the dash and let you watch for yourself. It only takes a couple of minutes. The Dash
No matter how long or short the dash, there is one thing you can be sure of and that is it will seem short.
“You get to choose how to spend that little dash of time between the two dates of your earthly existence. What are you spending yours on? Are you living the dash, knowing fully who you are and why you’re here? Or dashing to live, hurriedly spending precious time chasing things that really don’t matter to you?” — Kerry and Chris Shook
