The Dash Making Difference with Life.
I read of a man who stood to speak at the Funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on Her Tomb Stone from the beginning to the end.
He noted first the date of Her Birth and spoke of following date with Tears. But He said what mattered most of all was the DASH between those years.
For, that Dash represents all the time that he spent alive on Earth. And those who loved Her know what that little line is worth.
For, it matters not, how much we own, the cars. the house, the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spent our Dash.
So, think about this long, hard and are there things we would like to change? For, you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough to consider what is true and real And always try to understand the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more. And love the people in our lives like we have never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile. Remembering that this special Dash might only last a little while.
So, when your eulogy is being read with your life’s actions rehash. Would you be proud of the things they say about how spent your Dash?
Inspiration springs forth when we allow ourselves to be “in spirit”
Aligned with our true essence.
