Not too long ago my husband and I watched the movie “The Bucket List.” If I am being honest, I enjoyed parts of the movie but didn’t love it. But I did love the two questions Morgan Freeman’s character asks Jack Nicholson’s character while looking at the Great Pyramids in Egypt. Freeman explains that ancient Egyptians believed that they were asked 2 questions before being admitted into Heaven.
Have you found joy in your life?
Has your life brought joy to others?
Obviously I do not share this belief with the Egyptians, but I do love these questions. They are a great tool to help hold you accountable. Take a moment and answer these questions to yourself. Yes, you have to be honest. After you have answered these questions try taking it one step further. Rather than looking at your full life, what about each day?
If you don’t like your answer, write down 3 ways you can change it right now. Make it your goal to bring joy to someones day today!
