My grandfather Harry told me one time, “Cheri, the secret to life is to get up and get out.”
Pretty good advice from a 92-year who continued to stay as active as he could until the last two weeks of his life.
My brother Jim is a protegé of his grandfather, choosing to live life rather than have life live him.
There he is last May atop one of the red-rock arch formations in Arches National Park.
Jim is a dentist; his hands produce his livelihood. And there he is, waving those hands to the Universe.
Sure, he could fall, shatter his wrists, and never pull another tooth, never fill another cavity, never practice dentistry again.
That is not the way he wants to live his life.
I am inspired by this type of living.
His example reminds me to look up instead of down, to look forward instead of backward, to do instead of to don’t.
What do you do to live your life?
What are you thinking of doing?
Will you do it?
P.S. I need to answer these three questions myself!
