"Real life is found following a funeral." Death is always a cause for reflection. There is a finality
about being buried in the cold damp Earth that causes us to think about a lost loved one and about our own sense of mortality. We will get there too. Truly we have no idea of what that will be. We can't imagine fluffy clouds and harps and Heaven. Or it could be just like before you were born, or maybe there will be a party? As we get older a lot of our friends are on this other side!
If you could do it all over again, one more chance to get it right, would you? If you had this opportunity would you do it differently? You could make this an even simpler question. What would you do if given just one more day? Not one more day in some kind of illness to say farewells but a day in total health where you could do anything you wanted to?
I am betting, no matter how long your list, nothing will have anything to do with wealth or acquiring more "stuff". I am betting that if you could live your entire life over again a bigger house wouldn't even be on the list.
A person could begin this list by thinking of what you would miss most, think about what you might be willing to give up. What is really valuable to you. What would you like to see or do or be again? Where do you find enjoyment and laughter, surprise, wonderment, love, meaning?
Cancer will do this to you, especially if you survive it. You reflect about a lot of things. Today becomes very important. Not in order because I haven't figured that out yet, but tomorrow I will tell you my "top ten". Funny thing is, if I were a millionaire, none of these cost money! or at least not very much. Maybe you can take it with you! My Other Blog is Here.
