The Dash

Our minister, Charles Anderson, brought to light Sunday morning that we all have two important dates in our lives. One is the day we entered this world and the other is the day we leave this earth.  One we know well.  The other is a mystery.  Those two dates are quite often connected with a dash. His question to us was "What are you doing with the dash?"  In  Blue Zones Solutions, that I mentioned earlier this week, Dan Buettner identified nine common practices of people that lived long and productive lives.  One  was waking up with a purpose and one of the Power Nine was belonging to a faith based community. Of the 263 centenarians interviewed, 258 belonged even though the denominations varied.  Healthy Solutions is about sharing random thoughts about health and fitness that might make life easier within the dash. The dash is what we do with our lives.
