This time of year is especially hard for me, I lost my mother on Christmas Day suddenly from H1N1. There was no time to say goodbye or even tell her things I wanted to. So now that I have your attention, my point is this.
I know that we all live our lives on high-speed and just kind of go through the motions. With that said, after losing my mother suddenly I took a new look at life. It opened my eyes up to a lot of things that you know but they tend to get lost in the mix.
Take an honest look at your life and ask yourself are you truly happy? Are you where you want to be in your life? If the answer is no then now is the time to take a look and figure out what to do to change that. We all want things or we all have things, but those “things” don’t make you happy. It is has been burned in our brains that we all have to have more. When really all we need is what makes us “Truly “ happy. Whatever it may be.
The past week there has been a lot of opinions flying on here. This is good, we all have the God-given right to voice them. We are all adults and should be able to go back and forth like adults, because just once you may say something that changes the way that someone originally thought of something. So don’t think that if you don’t agree that you shouldn’t voice your opinion. The best way to describe that is that sometimes it’s better to agree to disagree.
Life is way to short and you need to live everyday as if it were going to be your last. I know that has been said over and over, but it couldn’t be more true. Remember to tell the ones you love, that you love them. Don’t ever think that you could do it later. Later may be too late.
So take life by the horns and make it the best that you can. The only person that can make you happy is you!
Life is hard and we all know this but life is what we make of it. So as you gather around this holiday season with family and friends running from here to there. Just remember that life is short. Next year just might not be.
We are each the person we are today because of our past, don’t live in the past just take the past and learn from it and move forward.
“The Purpose of Life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer richer experience,” Eleanor Roosevelt
