Life wastes itself while we are preparing to live.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you had one week left to live, would you still be doing what you’re doing now? In what areas of your life are you preparing to live? Take them off your To Do list and add them to a To Stop list. Resolve to only do what makes you come alive.
Bonus: How can your goals improve the present and not keep you in a perpetual “always something better” spiral?
If I had only one week left to live, I wouldn't change a single thing. I am happy with my life the way it is. The only thing I would probably want to do is to see my beloved Scotland one more time, to breath it in, to say goodbye if I could, afterwards I would go back to my loved ones again.
The thing I need to stop doing is; stop stressing and trust the Universe more. I know that if I let things go that they will turn out okay. I do have to remind myself to that everytime instead of trusting it. I also have to listen more to my innerself and what it's saying.
I don't live my life as a 'there's always something better' so the bonus question is not for me. I am happy with what I have. I don't need bigger, better, more... I'm not that kind of person. I've learned that along the way over the years or it was in me all along (probably the latter)
