It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these things. A lot has happened and I’ve learned a ton through all of it. I learned not to take life for granted - yours or anyone else’s. Life is short. You are not promised that you will live through tomorrow. Laugh a lot. Take pictures all the time. Enjoy the time you have with those you love. Embrace challenge and change. Don’t run from your fears; face them. Hug often. Love everyone. As hard as it is, when you love them, tell them. You never know when someone will be taken from you. Sometimes we think, “They still have so long to live; they’re so young.” But that’s not always the case. A lot of people are using “YOLO” to go out and get wasted. But, “YOLO” is true. You have one life to live, so make it worthwhile. Don’t go out and do stupid things; make a name for yourself – a good name. Don’t be afraid to dream – and dream big – bigger than ever before. Sing your way through the hard times and dance your way through the harder ones.
I can’t tell you why bad things happen to good people. But I can tell you that my God has a reason for all of it. I don’t know why people have to suffer before they leave this earth rather than just leaving in peace. I don’t know why sometimes things seem to look up and then drastically fall downhill. All I know is that there is a Creator who took the time to give you life. So live it to the fullest and don’t be afraid to fall. Get back up; and keep on living.
“If there ever comes a day when we can't be together keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever” -Winnie the Pooh.
