Which is worse? Dying or not having lived?

Today Is A Good Day

“I have discovered that people are not really afraid of dying; they’re afraid of not ever having lived, not ever having deeply considered their life’s higher purpose, and not ever having stepped into that purpose and at least tried to make a difference in this world.”

– Joseph Jaworkski

This reminds me a little of Marianne Williamson’s quote about “Who am I to be Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented, and Fabulous?”  It’s about acceptance of us as we really are. It’s about getting past the story of all the negative things that have happened to us and moving into the present and into the light. It’s about discovering why each of us is here, and then fulfilling that purpose.
