Life Lived or Un-Lived

"Spring has passed. Summer has gone. Winter is here ...and the song I meant to sing remains unsung. For I have spent my days stringing and unstringing my instrument." (Rabindranath Tagore)

Life can be lived or un-lived. 

Life that's lived leaves a legacy. 

It doesn't waste time on earth. It steps into what you can become and meant to be.

I met Willie. He's amazing. He wanted to be a good human being free of bondages. When he entered recovery, he worked out things that blocked his life goals. 

He blazed a trail after he "saved time" investing on learning what it takes to live life. He's now all geared up to prepare to be of service to humanity in his business.

Life that's un-lived, on the other hand, is filled with hidden secrets. 

Unresolved business. Unprocessed pain. "Too busy" wasting limited time. 

Mona is missing the opportunity of her youth. At 30, she has been in and out of psychiatric treatment facilities for over a decade.

She keeps blaming. Then, re-blaming. Planning, then re-planning. Postponing, then re-postponing. Nothing to show for it ... after all of her constant stringing and unstringing.

Don't allow this to be you. Un-living.

You have a purpose to accomplish in your One Life. Use your gifts and time wisely. Make a difference in people's lives. 

Live life. To the fullest. Leave a legacy to this planet.

Because one day, you will be no more.
