My thoughts for the podcast/videocast and blog articles on this topic came from me once again watching the movie "Tuck Everlasting".
You can see more about this movie here:
In a nutshell a family finds that "living forever" and never getting any older is not always what it is "cracked up" to be. Never experiencing the changes and growth that comes with "normal" LIVING is not always something to be skipped.
Yet, we all struggle with that very thing, don't we? We want to SKIP the hard times (go back to all of the past couple of weeks articles and podcasts on "Tough Times") and just live the good.
Wouldn't it be great if that were really possible?
Perhaps. But, then again, maybe not.
Here's the deal: that is NOT happening anytime soon - if ever - in our lifetime so we might as well figure out how to handle what comes our way as we LIVE life!
Yes, that means the good AND the bad.
Wow, that's not always easy to swallow, is it? As they say, sometimes "the truth hurts"!
Here is a quote from the movie that I used in the podcast/videocast for today that I want to share with you here:
"You don't have to live forever - just be sure to live."
Think about that as you go through your day.
Are you merely EXISTING or have you found out how to TRULY live?
Think about that and join me again tomorrow for the next installment of this thought process.
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
