Don’t Die Waiting for Time to Standstill

My first Don’t Die book traversed the true story of business loss and health loss.  The second Don’t Die book recounted the true story of a transformative 31 days of positive life change.  My third book is awaiting a vibrant true story that traverses and recounts a life experience that implores us all not to wait to begin living the life we desire – at whatever level that may be. 

While I am waiting, I block out several days a week to write.  I put the task on my calendar, with a time block and location. I usually go to a café to write in the morning.  This technique (setting a time and place — not necessary a cafe in the morning) is part of Peter Bergman’s, 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done. 

When I arrived at my writing date today, I first checked emails (which, by the way, is exactly what I am NOT supposed to do to stay focused).  When I read Silver Rose’s email blog, I paused.   During the pause, I attempted to imagine what it would be like if I was one of people described in the blog.  The story Silver told was of a married couple in their 50’s who were both get diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer on the same day.  It was surreal just reading the story, so imagining it actually happening was just too difficult.  I am grateful I could not imagine that happening.  But happen it did, to a couple Silver met.

What was not difficult was appreciating the synchronistic nature of the events:  I am waiting for a story that will inspire others not to wait to live the life they want, and an email comes explaining such a story (I am not going to write that story, but I do appreciate the synchronistic nature of events.)

It is that noticing, that shift in awareness, which helps move our perspective forward.
