Two Words


Here’s a business idea for someone. In my clinic, we talk some days about having only two words left to say in your life.
Maybe your throat is closing permanently, maybe you suddenly find silence far more attractive than words, maybe you just run out of things to say – I don’t know. The important part is discovering the words you’d choose to say to yourself and the world if you only have two left.

I asked someone this morning what her words would be. She said, “Taxes stink.” It made us laugh, because those are so not the words she’d pick. So not the words any of us would pick if we only had two left.
When I play this game, lots of options come to mind:
Let go
Be brave
Beauty everywhere
Sing loudly
Forgiveness heals
My favorite every time is Love Wins. That’s the one I want stamped on my mat.
There’s the business idea. Custom stamping of yoga mats.
So let’s imagine you can have your own stamped mat. What would yours say?
Thanks to the person who starts this business. I wish you all the success you deserve. I will buy your mat. Thanks to the yoga mats we stare at, and thanks, always, to you for your two words.
