The Family Guy got me thinking about life and what happens at the end of it.
Not the end or where to from there, but the one minute right before all that. If you could take your mind off the fact you only had 60 seconds left to live, what would you think about?
Would you consider where you’d been or where you were going? Would you think about you or other people? How would you feel about how you had used your time? Would you choose to ruminate on what you did or didn’t do? Do you think you would feel good about your life? Would it be 60 seconds of celebration or one minute wondering why you didn’t do more with your time?
Now think about the last 60 seconds, one hour, 24 hours, one week, two months, six months, one year, two years, five years, ten years. Now, consider how you would evaluate how you’ve been living your life and using your time relative to how you would think about it if you were to be gone in 60 seconds.
Consider the parts of your life that you would cherish and wish you’d spent more time on. Also consider the parts of your life that you would change if you could. Then choose two of those.
Choose one part of your life that you cannot change, and use it to cultivate acceptance. And, choose one other part of your life that you have now decided to change.
Then take another 60 seconds. Write me and tell me what you came up with and how you’re going to change it.
