While we wait in line

I saw what follows on Facebook … it’s about leaving this world, and what we do with the time we have.

In some ways it echoes what I learnt, felt and experienced on the Camino. I was never the first pilgrim and I was never the last … simply one in a long line of pilgrims working out the Camino for myself.

I made choices for myself every minute of every day, many were instinctive but others were thought out and reasoned. My choices impacted others, though most of the time I wasn’t privy to how that worked out … but it was a lesson, nonetheless.

Have a look at what follows, and like me, allow yourself to reflect on one thing … what kind of footprint or waves do you want to make while you wait in the line?

Every minute someone leaves this world behind.

We are all in “the line” without knowing it.

We never know how many people are before us.

We can not move to the back of the line.

We can not step out of the line.

We can not avoid the line.

So while we wait in line –

Make moments count.

Make priorities.

Make the time.

Make your gifts known.

Make a nobody feel like a somebody.

Make your voice heard.

Make the small things big.

Make someone smile.

Make the change.

Make love.

Make up.

Make peace.

Make sure to tell your people they are loved.

Make sure to have no regrets.

Make sure you are ready.
