Come Alive by Jonathan Mead

Life wastes itself while we are preparing to live. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you had one week left to live, would you still be doing what you’re doing now? In what areas of your life are you preparing to live? Take them off your To Do list and add them to a To Stop list. Resolve to only do what makes you come alive.

Bonus: How can your goals improve the present and not keep you in a perpetual “always something better” spiral?

If I knew I only had one week left to live, I would want to have a huge gathering, have my children and husband and family and friends around me. We’d all be in a beautiful sunny resort. Spacious, light, calm surroundings. Wonderful meals would be served, no dishes to do, no cleaning. Just following our whims and inspiration. Relaxing, laughing, playing, running because we are so happy to get to the next delicious thing we’re doing or experiencing.

Now I have to hurry and figure out how to afford that week 🙂
