I live each day like I may be dead by the end of it! My father died in my arms at a young age for him and my mom in a car accident later in her life. SO> learned with other examples as well that life is not with a guaranteed life stamp so do the best each day to leave a legacy to be proud of, family/friends that respect and value the relationship with you and respect and thank God for each day to get closer to Him and our full-worth and potential! Continued theme from me David as you can see :)

Hi David, I love this question of real work. So far, I would say that I the most real and important work I have done is, with my husband's help, to raise my daughter to be a fulfilled and joyful adult. Also, through my teaching career, I have brought a love of the English language to hundreds of students. But I'm not done yet. My new coaching career is taking off and my writing continues to be a source of great joy to me. I feel incredibly fortunate in having enjoyed a lifetime of meaningful experiences. And I am always pondering about the depths of our human experience. I love your post and the poem. Thank you.

Very insightful and thought-provoking poem David. Your message has deep impact on me because I was reflecting for quite sometime now since my retirement and ask my self this question, Is my real work done now?" "What comes next?"

"What's my next journey, O Lord? Please guide me. You are my righteous path, please don't lead me to the wrong one๐Ÿ™.

Still I have to move on and continue. Where it leads, I am still searching.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

I love this quote. It is so appropriate for where we are all being led right now. Instead of pushing the rock uphill it is more about how to float downstream which teaches us trust, letting go and following our inner knowing. And it seems these are the ingredients for living and being LOVE.

I love the connection to floating downstream. Embracing flow and inner knowing. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
