DEATH WOKE ME!

Updated: Sep 21


We all have a story to tell and here is mine in short. I was married for 23 years when I lost my husband suddenly without warning. I became a widow, and single mom to two teenagers within minutes. I was paralyzed. Crushed by excrutiating pain and gripping fear, life as I knew it was over. Somehow, adrenalin and reality kicked in. I became hauntingly aware of the brevity of life. I also became keenly aware of the preciousness of time. Through grief and my personal faith... my late husband's sudden departure woke me. It woke me up to the fact that time is our most valuable asset. So, I had a decision to make. Do I want to get bitter or get better? I vowed to get better and to encourage people along the way. I decided to share my life's experiences to urge others to see that the time is now!


If you knew you only had a short time left, how would you spend it? Would you knock off some of those bucket list items? Go on a trip you have been dreaming of? Forgive someone? Write a poem, a song, a letter? Paint a picture? Change careers? Start a recovery or exercise program? Start dating again? What do you want for your life? What is it that brings you joy? What's the thing you do you that hours pass like minutes? What stirs your heart so much that you feel convicted with an burning desire to take action? Do you have a heart for the homeless, elderly, animals, children? Go share your unique talents and abilities with others. Reignite your passions. Go do something. Do not waste another moment being unfulfilled.


If you have been stuck in complacency or unmotivated...wake up! Write a list of those things you want to do. Then, ask for help. Ask someone to help hold you accountable. This is the day! Don't waste it. Make it count. This is your time. Be encouraged. There is hope, help, a plan of action and brand new beginnings. It starts with a decision. Wake up!
