I recently saw an article about making your dash count. It caught my attention as I wondered what this statement meant. Did it referral to
The Dash Diet
The Speed You Run The 100 Meter Dash In
Reading The Dash Board Of Your Car
My guesses weren’t even close. What the article was referring to was the – (dash) in between dates. Especially the dash in between your birth date and your eventual death date.
Over the Christmas Holidays the author of the article was visiting the graves of her parents. And as she was paying her respect she noticed for the first time that every headstone had a dash in between their birthday and their day of dying.
For most the first date is a date of joy.
And for most the second date is a day of tears.
But the real significant part was the dash in between these two dates for it represented how they spent their life living out the time they had on Earth.
And as I read her thoughts about this it caused me to ask the question:
Are You Making Your Dash Count?
That “Dash” has so many applications.
What are you doing to make your health as good as possible?
What are you doing to make your relationships as loving as possible?
What are you doing to make your job or occupation as rewarding as possible?
What are you doing to make your finances as productive as possible?
There are so many areas in your life that effect your dash.
It’s my goal in 2018 to help you improve your “health dash” so that you have the energy and good health to make all the other “dashes” in your life as rewarding as possible.
One final thought as it applies to this concept of making your dash count. Here’s a direct link to a poem by Linda Ellis that beautifully illustrates the importance of making your dash count.
The poem is simply titled The Dash.
