" I lament that life's challenges, bumps, bruises, and valleys rob us of the joy of living. We can become so encumbered in our daily affairs that we cease to see life as a gift, which is both rare and finite. Take a moment and contemplate what it is that weighs you down and then think... is it really worth it?"

" What do you want to look back on??"
--- Written in 2006 by Simon Heighwaya --- United Kingdom
Of all the deep, wise and life-changing words that I've ever heard or read, this simple little sentence - "What do you wanna look back on?" - has had the most profound affect on me. I think it's a question that we should all ask ourselves now, because now is the only time to do anything about it; tomorrow never comes and later may be tooo late!!

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and Stephen Levine are two wonderful people who have done a lot of healing, inspiring and comforting work with people who are terminally ill and dying. They have also both helped to remove the 'taboo' of discussing death and helped us to better understand the dying process. In fact, more than that, they have continuously said that we can learn so so much about living from those who are dying!!! - for example, dying people tend never to regret things they did but only the things they didn't do...

It's said that the only real regrets we will ever have are for those situations, those moments, where we could have shown either more Courage or more Love. Now - this Moment - is the time to start living with more courage/love. Whatever it is you really want to do, do it. Life is an opportunity, an adventure. Don't die wondering "what if..." Start making wonderful memories now. Bob Dylan said, "If you want to keep your memories, you first have to live them". Live the life you're gonna wanna look back on!!!!
