Inspired by the thread by **boo_boo_bear ** If you only had six months to live… I wanted to start this thread. It’s not quite the same question as **boo_boo_bear ** but similar enough to warrant the reference. I was wondering how many people walk life in somewhat of a trance until something in the realm of a terminal illness, etc. wakes them to awaiting possibilities of adventure. The other day when listening to Rent , I began to feel this overwhelming sense of gratitude that I have neither a terminal illness nor any sort of ailment and yet felt compelled to enjoy my moments “today.” To feel this sense of abundant openness without the impending doom of demise leaves me feeling even more fortunate.
This thread is really a two part inquiry. How many of you feel that you often perform routine activities of life in somewhat of a trance (however, in being in this trance I wonder if it’s even possible to note that you are there…because it seems highly unlikely to gain this perspective unless it’s through a sort of retrospection)? Secondly, given the idea of enjoying “today,” what sorts of things would you be doing now and/or what sorts of things would you add to a list to accomplish in the next six months?
