One week left - #Trust 30 - Day 6

Today's prompt: 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?

What would I take off my to do list if I had just one week to live? That's a strange question... I would toss out the list and change it to a completely new one. I would finish that list of practicalities in one day and then just spend the other six days enjoying the company of the people that have made my life worthwhile. I wouldn't tell them it was probably the last time they saw me, but I would enjoy every second of their company.

And as for my current list, it's fine, it makes me live... I hope yours does too.

This post was written because I committed to the pledge to create something on my blog or journal for 30 days, following the Trust Yourself prompts beginning May 31st.
