‘We don’t know how long we have, but here we are. This world is a beautiful, mysterious, magical place to live‘
I recently read ‘Nothing Bad Ever Happens Here’ by Heather Rose.
It’s a beautiful account of her life, and I found it inspiring and moving.
I also found it left me wishing that I had grasped life as bravely as Heather has. I felt not exactly regret, but a little sad that there was so much I hadn’t done, and probably never would now …
She finishes with this beautiful invitation to live fully:
‘We don’t know how long we have, but here we are. This world is a beautiful, mysterious, magical place to live. It’s time to awaken. To get brave and curious. If you’re ready, here are a few suggestions …
Start with love.
Speak your truth.
Hold nothing back.
Swim in the beauty.
Dance, even a little.
Talk to each other.
Trust your instincts.
Love who you want to.
Forgive one another.
Watch the sunrise.
Sing to the moon.
Read ten new books each year.
Be kind to all people, especially yourself.
I try to do most of these most days because I agree with Heather – we don’t know how long we have on this earth and I don’t want to waste something so precious.
What you do to stay brave and curious and alive to the beauty of life? Do you live in a way that you’ll be glad to look back on at the end of your life, or are you just going through the motions?
And here’s a lovely short video about Heather Rose and the book: https://iview.abc.net.au/video/AC2112H037S00
