WE EACH HAVE A WINDOW OF TIME.
Most of the time I don't even think about the time I've spent or what's left of my life. Most days, I live in the moment.
Sometimes, when I'm having a great day, or my kids do amazing things, or I realize how much I love my wife, a fear sneaks in to ruin things. It's the fear that my window of life will close.
That sneaking, stinking fear, left unchecked, can lead to depressing thoughts. When it tries to ruin my day, I call it out.
Instead of focusing on endings, I appreciate the window of time I have left.
Instead of dwelling on mistakes, I remember what I've learned from them and how they make me better.
Instead of feeling flawed, I remember that everyone is flawed and there is beauty in imperfection.
Within my window of time I choose whether my impact on others will be positive or negative.
I hope you to fight against the fear too. Make a positive impact. Leave a beautiful life behind that inspires others to live lives fully, just as you did.
Embrace your window of time.
