It’s been a Good ‘Un, ain’t it?…
Walt Garrison told the story on Dale Hansen’s Sports Special about the Dallas Cowboys charter flight after a game sometime back in the late ’60s, the planet had just dropped 300 feet in a violent storm, like an elevator in free fall, and big, tough NFL football players were screaming and crying left and right.
Someone looked over at quarterback Don Meredith, who sat calmly reading a magazine, a cigarette in one hand and a scotch in the other.
“Aren’t you scared?” asked a player.
Sipping his scotch Meredith said, “It’s been a good ‘un, ain’t it?”
Everybody you know is going to die. I don’t think the point of this life is to run out the clock at 100 years of age or live as long as you can. The people who come to me for a reading are grieving, sad and miss their loved ones. Think about the game they played. They don’t want to be remembered as having left the game early or their pain or suffering.
Did they enjoy their life? What did you enjoy about their life? Was it a good one? Did they make you smile and laugh? Did they make your life easier? Did they make you work harder? Did they make a difference in your life? That’s what they want you to remember.
The greatest form of flattery is to emulate their life and do the things they did to evolve the world one soul at a time or many given the opportunity. You picked the date of your death before you came down here, just like you picked your family (usually in your soul group) and the date of your birth. Everything else is free will. You have guides and angels that offer you suggestions of what path to follow.
How do you want to be remembered in your life? Are you happy with what you’ve done or where you are? It’s not too late to change if you’re not happy. Make an example of your life like your loved ones did. Live life to the fullest and create relationships to help as many people as you can. Your loved ones on the other side love you unconditionally. I know that, now let’s make them proud!
