THE POWER OF MORTALITY

arrow left

In a captivating episode of The Midlife Makeover Show, Wendy Valentine sits down with Jodi Wellman, a distinguished speaker, author, and facilitator, to discuss how embracing our mortality can lead to a life filled with purpose and devoid of regrets. Jodi, the founder of Four Thousand Mondays, brings a unique perspective on the preciousness of time and the importance of making every day count.

The concept of Four Thousand Mondays is both simple and profound. The average person has around 4000 Mondays in their lifetime. By calculating how many Mondays you have left, you gain a stark reminder of the finite nature of life, which can serve as a powerful motivator to live fully. Wendy shares her personal experience of discovering she has 1750 Mondays left, which only fueled her determination to live a life of no regrets.

Jodi’s journey into this life philosophy began with a personal tragedy. The early death of her mother, who passed away with many unfulfilled dreams and regrets, served as a wake-up call. This experience led Jodi to delve deeper into stoicism and the concept of memento mori, which means “remember you must die.” By facing the reality of death, Jodi believes we can live more meaningful and vibrant lives.

Throughout the episode, Wendy and Jodi discuss the importance of not taking life for granted. They emphasize the need to act on our dreams and aspirations now rather than deferring them to an uncertain future. Wendy’s own life transformation, spurred by the deaths of her ex-husband and brother, underscores this point. These losses brought her back to life, motivating her to live fully and without fear.

One of the most compelling parts of the conversation is the discussion on the fear of failure and rejection. Jodi shares how her mother’s fear of failure kept her from pursuing her dreams, a trait she recognized in herself. This realization pushed Jodi to overcome her fears and live boldly. Wendy echoes this sentiment, urging listeners to step out of their comfort zones and take risks.

The episode also touches on practical ways to live a life of no regrets. Jodi suggests breaking life into 90-day chunks to make it more manageable and to regularly reassess and adjust our goals. Wendy shares her experience of living in Portugal and how it has taught her to embrace spontaneity and live in the moment.

In conclusion, this episode of The Midlife Makeover Show is a powerful reminder of the importance of living a life with no regrets. By embracing our mortality and making every day count, we can lead lives filled with purpose, vitality, and joy. As Jodi aptly puts it, “Imagine living before you die.”

If you’re ready to transform your life and start living fully, tune in to this transformative conversation. You won’t regret it.
