Grappling with Mortality,
This review is from: One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life (Hardcover)
"Every day, every moment, with every action, you're planting something. So the question is, what exactly are you planting? What is the cumulative effect of your words, actions, and intentions on those around you and those ahead of you?".
This statement and questions from One Month To Live reflects my gut reaction to my own mortality very well. I found myself wanting to make every moment count, but I often find myself falling short.
One Month To Live provides a step-by-step process through which you can be intentional and live differently one small step at a time. Each days encouraging chapter ends with three small steps you can take to change the direction and pattern of your life.
The book is divided into daily chapters under four overarching principles. Live Passionately. Love Completely. Live Humbly. Leave Boldly. All are intended as a guided response to the question "What would you do if you discovered you only had one month to live?"
My Bottom Line: I've been in the place where I've expected to die within minutes. Grappling with your own mortality in this manner will change your life if you allow it to, but it is not pleasant in that moment to find yourself wishing you could change the last thirty days. By following the steps outlined in One Month To Live, you can change your life before you come to a moment of crisis and find death looming closer then expected. The cost of this hardcover book is $19.95.
