“One day your heart will stop beating and none of your fears will matter. What will matter is how you lived.” ~Henri Junttila
I found this quote to be interesting, stirring, captivating and thought provoking.
As I pondered this quote, my fears surfaced. I realized, I am not afraid of dying or death, I have, however, been afraid of living~ fully, successfully. Becoming aware of my fears is the first step to transforming them. I am letting go of: not being good enough, not being loved, being alone. I am good enough, I am loved and I am not alone. Just saying and writing these has helped release these untruths.
How I live or try to live most of the time is:
Being in the present moment, self love, self care, giving kindness, compassion, empathy, caring, for myself and others. Living to my fullest potential, living with grace, living with peace. Happiness, being in the flow of life, listening to my intuition. Opening my heart, forgiving myself and others as needed. Gratitude daily for all I have been blessed with. Laughter, joy, connection, being prepared. Stepping out of my comfort zone and supporting others.
This is what living means to me. When my heart does stop beating and it will~I know I’ve done the best I can with the life I’ve been given now.
I hope to make a difference to even one person who will then make a difference to one person and thus the ripple effect begins.
How do you live? What fears could you let go of to live differently?
