18 Things That Will (Almost Certainly) Not be in Your Obituary (or mine)


  1. Had this annoying habit of giving people the benefit of the doubt.
  2. Successfully allowed other people’s opinions to shape all your important decisions in life. Well done.
  3. Failed at that one new thing you tried 15 years ago.
  4. Did a beautiful job protecting God from the attacks of people with different opinions. Whew, that was close.
  5. Definitely should not have donated any money to that man on the street that one time.
  6. Definitely should not have served a meal to that one homeless lady that one time.
  7. Forgave your friend again after having already forgiven them seventy times seven times. Big no no.
  8. Showed mercy to someone who definitely did not deserve it in any way. Tsk tsk.
  9. Could have made more money if you just had spent less time with family and friends.
  10. Did not develop an acceptable amount of stress and worry.
  11. You didn’t beat yourself up enough over things that no one else cared about.
  12. Spent too much time being quiet and listening to friends.
  13. Successfully kept all out-of-the-box ideas to yourself.
  14. Could have felt more guilt and shame.
  15. Shared love with too many people.
  16. Laughed way too much.
  17. Bad dancer, should have never tried.
  18. Experienced too much grace.

Take a break. Breathe. Do not worry. Do not fear.
