I wasn’t at all planning to do this. In fact I wasn’t planning to write what I did yesterday. But like I said, it just needed to come out and I think best by writing. And over the last 24+ hours I’ve been humbled, moved to tears and further entrenched in my resolve to live moment by moment, love harder, laugh louder, and risk more. It seems many of you have too. I think anything more I say now will only water down what I most want – and that’s to hear from you. Some of you wrote really moving comments, and if others of you haven’t read them, I encourage you to. But let’s take it a step further.
I’m asking you to help me with an experiment in community. If the internet is like a big house, then this blog is a rapidly expanding living room filled with friends. Yesterday’s post seemed to stir something for many. I’d love to hear from you. And if it’s helpful for you to nail your colours to the mast, this is a good chance to do that. It’s great to be inspired, it’s another thing altogether to allow that fire of inspiration to ignite something that propels you forward.
You can write as much or as little as you like, but your words may resonate with someone in ways you could never have guessed, so be free with them. There’s a lot of people reading this thread – so if you’ve been moved to make a change, here’s an invitation to share it by finishing this sentence in any way you like:
Life is short, and therefore I will…
You’ll be hearing mine in a post very soon. For now, it’s your turn. Be bold. Be specific. And then go take that scary first step.
