HOPE MONTH: DAY 14: “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.”― Steve Jobs

This reminder is always good for us. Ego tells us that everything is a big deal. And it is not. At the end of the day, no matter how much drama Ego wants to create, we are left with one piece of very valuable information…death is coming.

And that is all we need to remember. No drama, no big deals. Life is life. We all get one. Very few people will learn to live in ways that are completely organic and filled with joy, love, and wonder. This is ALL we are here to do. There is nothing to lose. Nothing. Isn’t that nice? Makes all the BS go right down the drain.

So, just get on with living and let go of all the BS. It is a good day to die…always, every day.

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
