What If My Whole Life Has Been Wrong?

Don’t get to the point where you’re living a lie. Don’t arrive at your death bed and ask yourself, “What if my whole life has been wrong?” Find YOUR purpose now and make a difference.

Imagine that today something tragic happens to you.  Imagine your whole life has been completely turned upside down.  You wake up from an accident and you are lieing in a hospital bed.  Barely able to breathe and you see your family surrounding your bed.  You feel weak and can barely speak.  You realize that your life is about to end.  What thoughts come to mind?

I think about death frequently, more so than most I assume.  Sometimes wonder what it’s like to pass away,  wonder when my time will be up.  I don’t look at the actual action of death as tragic,  more so leaving unfinished business here.

I can imagine no greater tragedy then being on your death bed and wondering if your life has been completely wrong.  If you have been leading a life to make other people happy.  Doing things you do not enjoy.  Chasing after material things and never understanding that none of it matters.  Just the thought of that makes me want to SERVE others.  Make them smile, let them know that people care, and in return the warmth and purpose you feel outweighs any mansion, private jet or fancy car you consume.

When you are on your death bed, will you look back at your life and smile or will you wonder if you had lived a lie.  I pray that when my time comes, that I am able to accept my life and die a happy man.
