Before You Die, You Want To _______ ?

Stop. Right now. I want you to breath and listen. Planning for a wedding, an event, a baby, a long trip, whatever - all of these situations are overwhelming. Even taking a vacation can be stressful. You've stopped here for a moment - and hello! I'm so glad you are here - but I want you to relax for a total of one minute. Breath in slowly through your nose and count to five, then exhale slowly through your mouth and count to five again. Now take a step back and realize that amongst all the chaos in your life, there are really only a few things in your life that are most important to you. What are they?

Before You Die Art

Candy Chang, an artist who focuses on public spaces, asked people to fill in this blank and the array of answers are beautiful and intriguing. There is something wonderfully permanent about putting things into writing, with your own hands, and I think there is a small excitement that comes with sharing who you are with the world. So what's your answer? Before you die, you want to _____ ?
