A Mighty Life

As I've mentioned briefly this has been a doozy of a year. There has been serious illness, pink slips, instability of all types and last week the incomprehensible death of a young woman I worked with and liked very much.  Christina was a "Let's saber the top off this champagne bottle and have some fun!" kind of girl and it's difficult to wrap my head around the fact that she is no longer here. How can someone so full of life be gone? After months of feeling paralyzed by the chaos around me her passing has flipped a switch in me: it lit a fire in my belly to live and love and devour life with joy. Right now I'm getting my LifeList ready for the upcoming Camp Mighty and in Christina's honor I'm trying to make it as big and fun as possible. I'm hugging my little boy, kissing my husband and not putting off fun for tomorrow when there is an opportunity to grab it today. Christina's life was far too short but she really lived it well. Today I'm writing this post to honor her and to remind all of us to follow her lead.

So tell me, how are you going to make your life Mighty? Leave it in the comments. I'm on a mission to have fun and I need some co-pilots.
