Last week’s Wellness Wednesday shared Kurt Vickman’s commencement address to the 2023 graduates of St. John’s University. Kurt focused on the importance of the dash between the year we are born and the year we die (1971–2021) and posed the question: What are you going to do with your dash?
There are lots of possibilities. Titus David Durkwa suggests one that we should take seriously:
The TRUTH is that all the STUFF here on earth we work so hard to buy and accumulate does not mean a thing.
At the end of the day people will be cleaning out our STUFF,
going through our STUFF, figuring out what to do with all of our STUFF…
the STUFF we’ve accumulated in our life.
The only thing of VALUE that remains are the MEMORIES
and what we deposit into others.
May we all learn to spend less time accumulating STUFF
and spend way more time making MEMORIES.
REFLECTION: What is a memory that is part of my dash?
What is a memory that I want to become a part of my dash?
From our team…Willow, Kevin, and Tom…who make memories with those they encounter.
