What Death Taught Me

2014-07-06-images1-thumb

One thing that has stood out to me as I ponder over 2015 is the untimely deaths of loved ones this year. This has caused me to shed tears that I preferred not to have shed. If you’ve been reading my blogs for any length of time you will understand that I’m always looking for a lesson out of everything in life. We talked about this on the last blog as well, no matter whether it’s good, bad, or ugly – finding the lesson is essential.

As I pondered on the lives of the individuals, all in which left us too soon, what they did – how they lived their lives – how old they were, I instinctively thought about my life. See, there are a lot of us that are still breathing and going about our lives, but really we are the walking dead. We are rotting with issues of the past, hurts from loved ones and unspoken secrets. We are living, but full of dead issues. Now I’m going to say this and it might sting a little bit so brace yourself – are you ready?

What better off are you than the those who are no longer with us if we are so full of negativity and darkness that we can’t produce real true life?

(Let’s take a moment and let that sink in)

I want to challenge you before the turn of the year – DO SOME HOUSEKEEPING! Don’t carry the dead stuff over, confront, deal, do whatever you have to do to make it right so that you can LIVE!
