Newsclip about Cory Rudl
I was not friends with him, but a lot of people were and apparently, behind the veneer of his marketing persona, he was a very well-liked guy who lived life to its fullest.
Also, Priya Shah just notified the marketing community that her beloved husband of 18 years died of a suddent heart attack.
(you may leave a kind word here):
I've added this very paragraph *after* this post was originally published. I read a little more about Priya's huband, from Priya herself, warm condolences of personal acquaintances, and have seen a picture of her husband's heart-warming smile. He has a look that says, "true friend to anyone and everyone." I could be wrong, but I have never been wrong about this sort of thing before. Here is his photograph so you can see for yourself:
Reality always intrudes on our best dreams, though, doesnt it?
We seem to go along with our heads down, noses to the grindstone and then, "Wham." the unthinkable happens. And it got a friend and I thinking about what it would be like for our loved ones if we died suddenly? Would our notes, etc, be in order so that loved ones could continue to reap the benefits of our efforts? This is a topic I shall write more on later, but it needs to be addressed as to what steps we can take to ensure our online labors are not lost forever from our loved ones when our life on earth ends.

I realize this is of no immediate comfort to one who is overwhelmed with grief, but after we regain our composure, we can make a goodwill effort to turn our attention to focus on the many things for which we still have to be grateful. And it is my experience that doing so is more than just a mere exercise, but really does serve as a powerful ally in chasing away the blues.
Please post a comment about any benefits you have realized in spite of a tragedy, something that turns out to be wonderful despite it's inception in an otherwise uncomfortable event.
If something occurs to you, then please just take a moment to tell others of the things you have to be grateful for, and the joy they bring you. Please...it'll be good medicine, and I'll administer the first dose. :-)
I am grateful for my health.
I am also grateful for my family and my loads of really great nephews and nieces.
I am grateful for being passionate about something.
I am grateful that I am able to be of service to others in various ways.
I am grateful for fresh air, clean water and a sound mind that grows stronger and sounder each day.
Blessings and peace to all,
