The Vulnerability of Death (Inspired by Kobe Bryant)


Death is vulnerable.

It’s scary because it’s both certain and uncertain.

It’s  certain because we all know we’re going to die one day.

It’s uncertain because nobody knows when it will happen or what happens when you die.

Today, as the world mourns basketball legend, Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and the others who died in the helicopter accident, death is inspiring me to live my life to the fullest.

Death is creating healthy urgency for me to move forward with my passion and purpose even bigger because I don’t know how long I have left on this planet. I don’t want to waste any time.

Death is helping me surrender to love even deeper because I don’t know how many times I will be able to talk to, touch, or experience my loved ones on this planet. Every touch or word may be the last in physical form.

Death is helping me choose life. I don’t know how long I will have vitality coursing through my body. Also, I don’t know what comes next. So, it’s wise to focus on what I have now and experience it to the maximum.

Today, I invite you to allow death to inspire you to:

Move forward in your passion and purpose and take big risks. Who cares if you fail. We’re all going to die someday! (a little morbid humor for you!)

Open your heart and love deeper. Who cares if you get rejected or hurt. Rejection and hurt are just pulses in the heartbeat of life. Let them remind you that you’re living.

Choose life and do something that you keep putting off, but want to do. Do it today because tomorrow isn’t promised for you or for anyone.

And remember…Death isn’t coming to steal your life in the middle of the night. Death is here everyday inspiring you to live.
