Imagine hearing the words: "You only have 6 months to live." What would you do? I recently considered this question. I don't know why it popped in my head. Maybe with the constant hustle and bustle of practicing law, representing people charged with DUI's, battery or other miscellaneous felonies I wondered why am I in such a rush. I then began to debate this with myself and see if I could use this question and answer for good things. You know, so I wouldn't have regrets later in life. Of course, many of my answers I wrote down were what you would expect: travel, experience new things, spend more time with loved ones. However, there was one thing I wrote down that completely surprised me. I wrote down: Use good dishes everday. You know those dishes you only pull out for for the holidays or special occasions. Why would I write that down? If I wrote that down why in the world am I not using them now. It would make me happier right? Seems sort of foolish that I wasn't using the dishes all along, huh? So from that day forward I have been using my good dishes. I have been doing a lot more things that make me happier too. I challenge you to ask yourself "What would I do if I only had 6 months to live?" Maybe you'll start using your good dishes, I did!
