How will you spend your DASH?

‎'On your tombstone there will be two dates, the date you were born and the date you died. That little, insignificant line between those two dates - that DASH - is your life!' Are you making the most of your DASH?
The Dash, the inspirational poem by Linda Ellis - captures not the date you were born, or the date you die—but the importance of The Dash between those years. It's what you do with your Dash to make a difference with your life.
This was one of my homework assignments and it really got me thinking. Right now my life is packed full of different things, family, work, school, this moment I feel I am making the most out of my DASH. I am taking small steps to complete my large goal and hopefully impacting lives along the way. I hope that when I am gone there are good things to be remembered. What about you?
This is just food for thought!! Hope everyone is having a great day!!

I can totally sympathize with the kid below!! I am taking 4 online classes, a night class, and one afternoon class two afternnons a week. I am thankful that my boss if flexiable and lets me go when I need to.

Class Schedule:
* Basic Public Speaking - Monday Night
* Teaching in the Middle School Grades - Tuesday/Thrusday afternoon
