In today’s post to his blog, Jack’s Winning Words, Pastor Freed used this quote by Lori Deschene, author of the Tiny Buddha blog.
“The goal is to die with memories, not dreams.” (Tiny Buddha)
Perhaps one could put that thought some other ways:
The goal is to die thinking I’m glad I did, rather than thinking I wish I would have.
The goal is to die knowing there is a God, rather than wondering if there is a God.
The goal is to die content with the life that you lived rather than saying I coulda, woulda, shoulda.
The goal is to die having loved and been loved and not having been consumed by hate.
The goal is to have made a positive difference in the lives of others and not to have just been a by-stander.
I don’t think anyone would end up being concerned about how many things they had or how much money they were worth.
As you think about your life, what are your goals at the end?
Now, what can you do today to achieve that goal?
