My mom was 50 years old when she was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.
At the time, I was 25 years old attending law school and I had a profound wake-up call upon hearing the news.
I thought to myself… If I have 25 years left of my life, what do I want to do with it?
The truth was scary, but I knew more than anything…
- I didn’t want to die a lawyer,
- I didn’t want to die sad,
- I didn’t want to die overwhelmed,
- I didn’t want to die unfulfilled.
When my mom was looking death in the eye, she did not look back at all the things she had done…
She looked back at what she had NOT done.
>>My question to you, dear friend, is this: what have you not done?<<
Feeling confused, overwhelmed, and unsure of myself, it was then that my newly-minted husband asked:
“If you could do one thing for the rest of your life and be happy, what would it be?”
I said I wanted to be a photographer, and the rest is history.
Life is short, Buttercup. What will you do with this one, short, wild, and crazy life?
