I've no doubt that you’ve been as shocked as I have by the recent tragic losses of such icons as Joan Rivers and Robin Williams. What it brings up for many of us is how surreal life is that we can be here one minute and gone the next. Rather than this be a fearful morbid thought, it can also inspire an appreciation of life… of a life well lived. It's an opportunity to reflect on a thought:
Are we impacting people the way that these icons did (not necessarily on the same scale but with the same intention). Are we living fully? Are we really appreciating everything that we have and being grateful for it?
Or, are we just going about our lives, waiting for our last day to come?
This is a powerful opportunity to be present and appreciate what we have and who we still have in our lives.
Reach out to those people you appreciate and let them know how much you cherish them!
