Live Your 100%

Mar 30, 2022

When my husband passed, a handful of well-intentioned people said, “You have your whole life ahead of you.”

The last thing I wanted was a “whole life” yet to live. I wasn’t sure how I was going to navigate one hour, much less a whole day. A lifetime was definitely not what I wanted to think about in those early months.

I was 39 when my husband passed, so I had the potential to live another 40 years, give or take. The thought terrified me.

No matter your age, each of us have exactly 100% of the life we have yet to live. Maybe it’s just a decade or two or three, but without a doubt, it will be 100% of whatever time is left on this earth.

If I’ve learned anything in talking with hundreds of widowed people each year, it is that time does not heal. Examples are everywhere, and they sound something like, “It’s been 10 years and it hurts like it was yesterday.”

We certainly can spend the 100% of whatever is left of our lives waiting and hoping that time will lessen the pain, but it won’t.

We can choose to spend the 100% of whatever is left of our lives trying to outrun or numb the pain, but speaking from experience I can promise that that also doesn’t work.

Or we can spend the 100% of whatever is left of our lives focused on what does heal: intentionality. Which boils down to three simple steps:

  1. Observing thoughts objectively.
  2. Analyzing and deciding which to believe on purpose and which to stop believing on purpose.
  3. Thinking, on purpose, true thoughts that serve you.

By intentionally thinking true thoughts that serve us, we create useful feelings that drive purposeful actions, and ultimately, we create different results in our lives.

We can live a life our of own creation.

Time will pass either way. How will you spend your 100%?
