Making It Count

Did you read my latest blog “The Path to Vulnerability”?

In that blog, I shared how “feeling all the feels” is so important to bringing us growth and stepping more fully into our lives.

Little did I know when I wrote the blog that my Dad would be going into the hospice house for observation the next day after a severe breathing episode. He lives with COPD (along with my Mom) and is challenged on a daily basis with the simple act of breathing – something we easily take for granted.

This latest episode had me feeling like I was “feeling all the feels” on steroids. When I went to visit him in the morning at the hospice house, he looked so fragile and yet peaceful at the same time.

As I’m spending time being vulnerable, reflecting and doing my best to live with the uncertainty of what’s ahead, I’m thinking about how I want to live my life.

We only have so much time, energy, and resources. The choice is ours as to how we go about our lives each day. How can we make it count?

While it’s so easy to get caught up in scrolling the latest Instagram stories, getting lost in the world of online shopping, and doing things that don’t add meaning to our lives, will these bring you any closer to living a life that feels good to you?

And isn’t that what we all want?

What can you do today to make the best use of your time, energy and resources? Go ahead and let me know in the comments below.
