Life: Live It

Image

When the rain falls, don’t hide yourself away

Learn how to dance your way through the storms

And when the sun is shining brightly upon you

Don’t take a single minute of that for granted

 

Life is a series of ups and downs

A crazy roller coaster ride of emotions

There are lessons to learn

And memories to be made

 

Your heart will be broken

And you might break a few yourself

You’ll know loss and pain

Disappointment and strife visits us all

 

And while there are times it seems easier to give up

In the end, it’s always worth it to find your way through

Even though it may not seem that way at the time

The dark times don’t last forever

 

Though neither do the good ones

So when they’re upon you

Remember to appreciate each moment

Cherish every laugh, smile, kind word, and embrace

 

Love boldly with every fiber of your soul

Don’t let loss or fear of rejection hold you back

Feel every single emotion unashamedly 

Embrace change, take risks, and always be true to yourself

 

We were born to be an individual work of art

Original, truly one of a kind

Don’t blend in just to gain acceptance 

Or even just to go unnoticed

 

Life isn’t always easy

And we don’t always understand why

Or how things happen the way that they do

But it’s all worth it in the end

 

Having faced lots of loss and pain myself

I have come to realize that life is short

Quite fleeting and fickle

Taking us from this world many times without notice

 

And I have decided that I want my life to mean something

For however long I am to walk this earth

I want to have touched people’s hearts

To love those around me with all I have each day

 

For without love, what is there really?

I know that is why I am here

To be a friend, to help, to give, to heal

That is what I will leave behind, a great legacy of love

 

(And I encourage you to do the same.)

Thoughts for today

Image

 

I don’t know how long things will stay the way they are. I guess none of us ever really knows how long anything will last, the good or the bad within our lives. With the way the government is, illnesses that come out of no where, death, pregnancies that weren’t “planned” and really even the ones that are, job promotions no one expected, friendships that form and ones that fall apart, and so much more…it is really is impossible to know just how your life will go. Instead of worrying about what’s around the next curve though, I am just trying to be grateful for the good that is in my life right now, change what can be changed, and try not to dwell on what can’t be. Life is so very short, it’s been a lesson learned over and over again as I have said good-bye to so many throughout my life. I don’t know when my time will be, but I hope that when it comes that those left behind will say I lived my life to the fullest and that they will let my memory live on through stories told, pictures, and through their memories. God has given me this time and while I have it, I don’t want to waste it. Let this be yet another reminder to each of you just how very special you are to me. I am blessed, richly so. Thank you for all you do and for being exactly who you are. To those I have lost, I am doing what I can to honor your memory and know I miss you so. Let those of us still here do just that for those we have lost, honor them by living the remainder of our lives to the fullest that we can. Let us love fiercely, play and enjoy life, work hard for what we want, teach, learn, and grow.

A quick quote and a few thoughts

Image

A friend of my cousin said this to her today and it really made me think. I would like to share it with you: “Embrace your next mistake, it’s your next chance to grow.”

My cousin was talking about questioning her life’s decisions. We all do that from time to time. But as her friend was saying, “If you’re waiting for the day you know it all and don’t do anything you wish you hadn’t, it never comes.”

How true, you know? Life is a series of trial and error, hit and miss. We’re meant to learn throughout life. The day we stop learning is the day we truly die. Making mistakes is a common occurrence for us humans, but instead of beating ourselves up for our failures, we should instead learn from what we’ve done and move forward. Life is too short to dwell upon what has already happened. 

I lost my great uncle two days ago, now all of the males from that clan are gone. Four brothers have moved ahead and now we just have their two sisters left, my great aunts Karen and Sheryl. I was thinking about that yesterday through the tears, about how very short life is. We all age and soon we find the generations ahead of us are passing on. It’s a part of life. While alive though, shouldn’t we make the most of the time we’re given? Whether we live to see our grandchildren or die young, touch other’s hearts and make a difference somehow, even if it’s just by making someone laugh who has had a rough day or sharing your art with the world…do something to show the world who you are and what you have to offer. 

Life is happening now, go live it while you have it! Don’t be held back by the past, like Mark said…”Embrace your next mistake, it’s your next chance to grow.” So, grow!!! Love, laugh, live!
