Sunday Women Matters with Blondie - Living the Dash of My Life

We have only one life on this earth and it helps to reflect on the way we are living our lives. Are we just treading the water of self-survival or are we making a difference in the lives of others.
Today I came across this poem by an unknown writer which once again made me re-evaluate my life;
If we could slow down enough to know what's true and real, And always try to understand the way other people feel. And be less quick to anger, and show appreciation more, And love the people in our lives like we've never loved before. If we treat each other with respect, and more often wear a smile. . . Remembering that this special dash may only last a while. When your eulogy is read, your life's actions to rehash, Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?
Have a good week all and take time to think about how much the dash between your dates of birth and death will represent.
