How many Saturday’s do we have left? Truth is, none of us know.
My mom died 5 years ago, she was 75. If I followed her trajectory, I would only have about 1,000 Saturday’s left. Life is finite. Each day is a present, be present for it.
I have a giant clear jar that I’ve filled with 1,000 marbles.
Every Saturday I take a marble out, it’s a nice reminder that I am choosing how to spend my time.
In her 2015 book The Sweet Spot, Christine Carter reports that when people make a specific plan for what they’d like to do or change, they do better than 74 percent of people who don’t make a specific plan for the same task.
Carter inspired me to commit to my Sunday Meeting Self-Care Plan.
