I’m a little all over with this one, but I think you will get what I’m trying to say…..
I have said this many times, no tomorrow is guaranteed, so make every moment count, tell the people you love how you feel, forgive those that hurt you, don’t have any regrets, do what makes you happy. Live for today, forget yesterday it’s gone, don’t worry about tomorrow it hasn’t happened yet, but live for today, as it is the present. (I don’t know the exact quote or who said it sorry)
I watched four children, a husband, parents, sisters and many other love ones, say goodbye to their mother, wife, daughter, sister, etc., almost two weeks ago. Last year I said goodbye to a dear friend, who was like a brother. He was 44, he collapsed and died in front of his two young children. I have lost so many, way too soon. I am a person who was raised Catholic, always attended church, yet at times I have struggled, wondered why God would take such good people, yet let others still walk this earth. I wonder if it is his way of telling us to not hold grudges, let the little things go, tell the people we love that we love them, when we have the chance. Teach us to cherish every day, as we never know when it will be our love ones or our last day on this earth. To teach us to treat everyone and everything, as if it is.
They say when one life ends another begins. I wonder if that is true, as my son and his girlfriend told me they were expecting a child right after my uncle lost his battle to cancer. I know we are only on loan on this earth, but sadly some are here for a much shorter time than others. I try every day to live in the moment, as much as humanly possible, try to do the right thing by the people in my life, try not to have any regrets or to take any day for granted, it’s not always easy. I feel God will help guide us to be better people and to help others. I feel He doesn’t abandon us or hate us, if we mess up a little, as long as we learn from those missteps and try every day to be a better person.
So please try to remember to tell the people you love how you feel, hug your kids, your parents, loved ones and tell them you love them, treat people the way you want to be treated, cut toxic and drama filled people from your life and find what truly makes you happy in this life, as you only get one. Try not to waste what precious moments you have on this earth doing what doesn’t make you happy or with people that bring you unhappiness. They say life is short and sometimes some of us find out just how short it is, so live, love, enjoy and be happy.
