My husband and I both are big on creating the 'To do' lists, the essential trivia that seemingly must be done daily, weekly, monthly. Perhaps after my training days, my 'To Do's' are less important (or more related to the creation of the website) or more along the lines of being in nature with loved ones.
The following check list comes from Michael Bischoff, as part of his tribute to Dr. Leo Buscaglia, adapted from a holiday letter sent by Dr. Buscaglia in 1996:
I must give more of myself and less of things.
I must remember that we are all mortal and we don’t have forever to celebrate each other.
I must be certain that no one I know, who doesn’t choose to be, will be alone.
I must do something tangible during the day to make the world a more loving place.
I must take the time to make that phone call or write that note. People never tire of being remembered with love.
I must keep in mind that the message of the angels is, “Fear Not!”
I must not forget that there are poor, hungry, ill, lonely people whose lives I have the power to better. I must find a way.
I must not forget that my prime responsibility is to love and that all good things come from this.
pledge to myself, to others, and to the world to no longer let any day
end without engaging in words and actions of love and friendship.
The message from Dr. Buscaglia is clear, "Life is lived in the here and now, we must clear our lives of the essential trivia to make more room for living and loving." Live each day as if it were to be your last. Because one of these days you will be right.
