I read an article recently that said most people live to be 80 years old. That means they’ll have 4000 weeks in their lives. People who live to be 100 have 5200 weeks. That was an amazing figure to me. 4000 weeks doesn’t sound like a lot of time, does it?
My neighbor is 85 or so and has end-stage cancer. She’s decided not to treat it. She’s lived a full life, has all kinds of physical ailments and feels complete with life. What a gift.
Focus on doing what is meaningful and important to you, and let go of the rest. We can’t control all the outcomes – just how we decide to use our precious time – our 4000 – 5000 weeks.
How are you spending your week? Are you aligning your time with what you value and love?
Be mindful, awake, and aware. Time. Is. Precious.
