PIECE OF PEACE: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH THE DASH?
What will you do with your one powerful life?
– KEYS SOULCARE
“Recently, I lost a beautiful brother and friend…And something he said was, ‘There’s the date that you’re born, and there’s gonna be the date that you die, and in between it on your gravestone, there’s gonna be a dash. What are you gonna do with the dash?’” — Alicia Keys
Loss is an evitable part of our journeys, but seeking out the good in grief is essential and sacred work. To inspire us to sit intentionally with our mourning, Alicia gifted us with this gem from a conversation with a dearly departed friend.
Her challenge to all of us: What will you do with the time you’re being given? How can you let death inspire you to live your very best life?
Consider this a call to action and live fully now. Don’t wait for the “right” time. (FYI, there’s no such thing.) Be present, unapologetic, and grateful every single day. While our potential is unlimited, our time on earth is finite. Make the most of what you have, and always reach for your biggest dreams.
And when in doubt, remember one thing: You are a lightworker, and you’re destined for greatness.
