ARE YOU LIVING YOUR OBITUARY OR LIVING EULOGY?

It is finally here! I kinda, sorta, waited and wanted to be FIFTY~~~because then I thought I would know “who I would be!” But it is here and I am not quite ready. When I turned 35 I adopted the personal motto of, “People don’t care what you know until they know that you care!” This simple sentence worked for me; but NOW I want “MORE!”

Gary and I had a Saturday dinner date at the Mpls restaurant Auriga. The food was outstanding, service good and our conversation came to a dead halt when I asked Gary for help writing my obituary. I guess he is right. Why focus on being dead instead of on living? My thoughts then turned to writing a Living Eulogy that would guide the best years of my life.

Chere’s Living Eulogy

She quit chasing perfection.
She appreciated the sensuality of simplicity.
She savored brussel sprouts, raspberries, Hershey Kisses and Merlot wine.
She celebrated life “OUT LOUD” with passion, serenity and creativity.
She always thought there was enough time
~ time to notice and time to simply be.

My life isn’t measured by the 50 candles on my birthday cake this year. It is measured by daily joys and sweet blessings. Relationships are my thoughts and these thoughts are my blessings. You are my blessings and I thank you! When you create your living eulogy you create a commitment to following your vision and your priorities. Your heart will tell you if you are on the right track or not. You don’t need to wait to live life to the fullest. You just need to do it!

STEVEN TONDER IS TASTING LIFE

"I've learned to celebrate my victories and avoid stepping into the "hole" of offering promises which I don't need to make. Chere has equipped me to be more intentional about what I eat and worked with me through the change process to where losing weight is no longer a dream but a reality. Living intentionally is a sweet by-product of life coaching!"

—Steven Tonder, Customer Support Specialist, Medtronic

You only have one life to live ~ imagine if it was one you loved.

So, love yourself first this month!
