A Wise Use of Time?


If this were my last hour on earth, would I be happy with how I’ve spent my time today, this week, or this year?

Would I feel good about the priorities I’m focused on right now at this point in my life?

Do I feel complete and at peace with the people who matter most?
—Cheryl Richardson

Well, yes. We spent a lot of hours the past few weeks finishing up the insurance documentation. Thanks to the help Kaitlin and Torben gave us when they came, it was not only manageable but enjoyable. Instead of feeling the paperwork was a drag, it was a way of connecting with old memories and turned out to be rich and rewarding experience.

How would you answer Richardson’s questions?

    Generally, yes. I’m comfortable with where I’m at right now.

    i am so comfortable with where i am in my life right now that i sometimes wonder if there’s something wrong with me!!!!
    can you be happy and in deep saddness at the same time? my beloved sister-in-law is dying of cancer. i took three little breakfast souffle’s to their house yesterday for the three of us to share…for my brother and her and myself. we talked and laughed. she looks like a little porcelain china doll sitting there. (her hair is all gone because of the chemo). but she’s as beautiful as ever. it was a bittersweet moment. but really… that’s all life is made of… moments upon moments… some sweet, some bitter and some bittersweet.
    love to all my cheerful monk friends,

    Very. It took a while to adjust with my father and for him to adjust to me, but we are now comfortable with each other. With the others, I have been like that for decades.

    Hardly, I wouldn’t bother with eating – or doing much else other than some intense time with my beloved.

    It’s a good feeling, isn’t it?

    “can you be happy and in deep sadness at the same time? ” I think so. I’ve experienced it.

    I’m glad things are going so well now.

    I’m glad you have someone you feel that intensely about.

    Yes I celebrate every day!
    And our days can be filled with all kinds of goals moving forward simultaneously together. I’ve been going through lots of big life adjustments. For me Joy is essential!

    I’d love to hear more about the changes in your life.

    My computer or cyberspace threw a wobbly so I’m behind with things…50 emails dropped by yesterday some up to a week old!

    I still think I have a few more things to achieve but if I didn’t have that option – I’ve probably done enuff 🙂
