Have you ever thought about how fragile life is?

Have you ever thought about how fragile life is?

I was beyond stumped last week when I received the news of a sudden passing. When people die you think – they lived a good life, but they were tired; and ill; and it was their time to be pain free . . .

When someone wakes in the morning fine and drops down – gone – it makes you think. Maybe their passing should be a lesson to us all.

On Friday when I sat in the evening and began to digest news of a passing, I thought, you can take a day without telling someone you care about, that you love them. So I told people. I told them that I cared. Some thought I was drunk. You know what – you don’t have to be drunk to care about someone. I was so emotionally slammed that I nearly went back on my word, and brought back people into my space who I had decided to rather love from a distance. Today I am glad that I didn’t.

Life is short

Verbalising that you care shouldn’t be your only thought…

It made me think of how every day should be lived to the fullest. How you shouldn’t let great opportunities slip you by.

In a way this line is for those who I now love from a distance: take a look at the promises you made that turned into missed opportunities. What did you lose? Maybe in the future you could quit making excuses and GO FOR IT? Say “what the hell” or “screw the weather – we don’t need good weather to make plans – some of the best things happen while it’s raining”.

Forget the “what if’s” turn them into WOW’s.

Turn up the music!

Dance to your own tune!

Don’t let other people get you down. That’s their path, not yours.

And those little moments – those ones that made you smile or roar with laughter; even the ones that made you cry; remember them because they are what the best memories are made of.
