Wake Up Call! – Rewind or Live?


Does your rewind button keep replaying or are you present to life?

My friend Chuck and I spoke often about having dinner or drinks – “We’ll do it soon.” Chuck was not one of my closest friends but I admired and liked him enormously. The years rolled by and we’d keep promising to meet in person. Then this vibrant man in his fifties suddenly died.

Would I choose to hit the rewind button or choose to be present to what his death revealed about well-intentioned promises?

In my shock and grief at Chuck’s death I mourned those missed opportunities. Yes, we lived a hundred miles apart but surely our calendars were not that oppressive?

The rewind button seemed like a life-sapping trap. I can’t change the missed moments with Chuck but I can be present to the invitations of life today. What will you choose?


  • Detach from the rewind button in your life
  • Be present to life in this moment, this day

Notice how being present invites you into fullness of life.
