Jealous of those who almost die?

Here’s something that’s both really twisted and entirely sensible:

I’ve heard of people being jealous of those who have near death experiences.

They don’t want to die – just the opposite. They want to live. It’s because they think (or at least hope) a near death experience will kickstart their motivation and flood them with gratitude for being alive.

It’s a terrible plan.

I’m not saying it wouldn’t work. It might. Then again, it might make things worse.

It’s terrible because, why wait for a near death experience?

(That and why risk one…)

I’m sure you’ve had the experience of someone saying just the right thing at just the right time. Before they said that, you’re world was nothing but a ball of problems. After that, it doesn’t seem like a big deal.

Sure, you still have challenges… but you know you can face them.

Heck, I bet you’ve been on both sides of this. There have been times when you said exactly the right thing to someone and saved them from their spiral of thoughts.

One of these can be just as good as almost dying. It can help you rethink more than just your problem, but your life too.

It’s interesting because these seem so random.

Sometimes, the magic phrase is useful advice.

Sometimes, it’s something profound.

More often, it’s something everyone already knows… but hearing it somehow makes things different.

It’s not random, though.

There’s a structure to them – and I know what it is.

If we have a chat, you might hear me say a few things like this to you – unless I decide to say something better.

You know what the right moment can do for you.

But I bet you don’t know what months’ worth of this moments will do.

That has to be tough to imagine and even I don’t know what’ll happen by the end.
