I went for a sunset beach walk with a dear friend of mine who has recently been ill, when he mentioned to me that his expereince of sickness has been the greatest gift he has received in years.
As a firm believer in “blessings in disguise”, I smiled and asked, “what did it offer you?”
He said, I began to realize that I have no real control of when I will die. Of course, I can eat well, meditate, have healthy lifestyle practices that will support my quality of life and time here on earth, but I have no real control over when that day will come. What I do have 100% control and power over is how I chose to live my life until that day comes.
We’ve all heard it before in country songs and bedtime stories, but this is the ultimate truth. You have complete control over what your existence and experiences are on this earth, in this waking-waling life. So what do you want to expereince before you’re end?
