Celebrate Life Now

Celebrate Life

I was listening to K-Love yesterday and a listener called in and told them about how they celebrated the life of someone they love BEFORE they died. The lady that called in talked to us about her mother who had terminal cancer and knew she didn’t have long. She’d heard the idea on K-Love and decided it was something that she wanted to do for her mother. So, she planned out the event to take place on her mother’s birthday. She wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but she knew it was something she wanted to do, no matter how many people showed up. They expected maybe 15 people to show up, but 65 people attended and it was such an amazing and positive experience for everyone. Her mother was able to be surrounded by people who loved her, who celebrated her life and all she’d done. Since then, her mother did pass away and I can imagine it’s been hard for her and her family. But, she said that doing this for her mother is something she’s so glad she did. Her mother got to know just how important she was, how much she was loved while she was still here.

I really liked hearing that story, moved me quite a bit. I know there are many times when doing something like this isn’t possible, but then, who says we should wait till someone we love is dying to celebrate their life? I try throughout my life to show those I love how much I appreciate, respect, and love them. Though, when someone we know is dying, I think it especially a good idea to throw a celebration of their life. Why not give them something to remember in the days they have left that will touch their heart? Life is precious and all too fleeting. We should make the most of it and part of that is showing those we adore how much they mean to us, how important they are. I wanted to share this story and idea with all of you. Perhaps even one of you will be touched by this, perhaps even one of you will take something from it and then share your own story of celebration, life, and love with others so that your story will then inspire others to do the same. All it takes is one person and the willingness to share their story to ignite the flame.

Today Is Here

Love_heart

Love those you have in your life right now because we’re never promised a tomorrow. Each day we’re given is a blessing, even the ones that don’t feel like one. Life is short, especially when one considers the scope of eternity. Even if one lives to be 100 years old, that time is but a blink of an eye in forever’s mind. I can’t tell any of you to never worry, to never be upset, to never get angry, to never feel pain, or to never be sad because it’s all a part of life. But I can say this, also do your best to give as well as take, show kindness, feel hope, be a friend, smile, laugh, know joy, and to both feel and give love. Today is here and it’s yours to mold, use your time wisely. ❤

A message to the past

Dear Past,

I am writing this letter to tell you it’s over. I can’t spend every day with you anymore. The truth is, I have outgrown you. Now and then, we have had our good times. You have made me smile and laugh when pleasant memories enter in. So, I can’t say this is an easy thing for me to do. The truth is though, there have been more bad times than good with you. Often times, it’s the harsh memories you choose to share with me and I am done living that way. I can’t live within yesterday. I regret to inform you that I have found someone better for me. The present treats me with me with more respect, values me, and doesn’t hold my former mistakes against me. It has shown me that there is so much life left to live and has given me such hope that any tomorrows I am given will be brighter and full of so much love and laughter. I will miss you now and then, but I know that it is for the best that we part ways. Thank you for everything, for every lesson you taught me, for the good times, and for making me who I am today. I am sure I will look at pictures now and then, but only to remember the good times. Your hold over me is done, no longer can you hold me back or hold me down. Our time together has certainly been one heck of a journey, but it’s end has come. Every end is bittersweet, but sometimes you just have to let go so you can embrace what is to come. Thank you again! Maybe when we see one another again, the bitterness will be gone and we can be friends. If not, well, I will still carry the good memories with me always.

Sincerely,

The new me
