Today in church, Dave spoke about our tendency as a society to rush through life — over-busy and under-satisfied.

Do you feel like you’re running in circles? Spinning your wheels? Unable to focus? Overwhelmed? Got a “To Do” list longer than your grocery list? Doing a lot of different things, but not getting anything “done”?

Today’s message reminded me of this awesome poem with an incredible point-of-view on Life.

It’s all about living your life so you’ll have no regrets…

How Are You Living Your Dash?

It’s called The Dash and it was written by Linda Ellis.

You know how a tombstone shows one’s date of BIRTH, then a “dash”, followed by one’s date of DEATH?…

Have you ever stopped to consider that your “dash” will represent all of your years on this Earth?

…What mattered most of all was the dash between those years.


Are you happy with how you’re living your “dash”?


So when your eulogy is being read with your life’s actions to rehash, would you be pleased with the things they have to say about how you spent your dash?

Professionally, I pursued my Masters Degree in Family Therapy at Texas Tech -- where I obtained invaluable expertise and experience helping people with a wide variety of physical and emotional health issues. Personally, I think it's useful when people realize that they're not the only one going through a difficult time. So any time that I think my personal health experiences would be helpful to someone else going through the same thing, I will share my story here. With health issues that I've personally experienced (like Endometriosis, Lyme Disease, Hysterectomy, Skin Cancer, Ganglion Cysts, Autism, and other topics that very few people enjoy talking about) and health products that I've found beneficial (like sleep aids, essential oils, and medications)... I do my best to provide my own raw and honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and (hopefully) find helpful. I'm grateful that I have a number of friends who have also been willing to share their very personal stories here -- regarding their own physical and emotional health. When I'm not writing about health topics, you will find me sharing Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
