As I near my 70th year I am more than ever aware of what a blip in eternity my time is on this earth.
The 3 areas that the people who were dying shared with Mathew O’Reilly gave me pause for thought about what is important . . . and what isn’t.
- Forgiveness – reflecting on their regrets
- Remembrance – wanting a lasting connection with others
- Meaning – having wasted life on meaningless tasks.
It’s very short video and worth a few minutes of your life.
