You Are Dead

Sorry to break the bad news to you, but you’re dead.

I know… bummer.

And don’t ask me how you died. It’s really too painful to talk about (even though it did make everybody at the bar laugh hysterically).

Anyway… ummm, where was I? Oh yeah… you’re dead.

It’s sad… your death… but you don’t have to take a glass-half-empty view of these developments. Look on the bright side: this is an ideal opportunity to celebrate your accomplishments and write a proper ending to the story of your life.

What will they say about you as they gather to pay their last respects? What is the indelible mark that you left on this landscape called Life?

Before you hem and haw and struggle to come up with a suitable answer, here’s a shocker: you’re not really dead.

I know, pinch yourself. You’re really alive.

But I would like you to spend a few minutes thinking about your life and your legacy.

Have you accomplished everything you’ve set out to accomplish?

The average life expectancy is 78.3 years; how much longer do you realistically have?

And what are you waiting for?

Dying for more?
I'm continuing on this morbid
discussion when I moderate tonight's
Fitblog chat tonight at 9pmET.
Click here for all the details.


  1. OOH.
    Will you call the Husband and get me special dispensation to plugIN tonight?

  2. Sounds like a good chat!!! Hopefully I can attend!

  3. I'm just glad I won't need to be buried in a piano crate any more.

    I have a family party tonight so I won't be able to be at the #fitblog chat:(

    Next week I guess.

  4. According to my rough calculations I have 12 307 days left...and no, I have not accomplished everything I set out to accomplish.
