No one can truly predict the moment we inhale our first breath or when we will exhale our last breath. The whole concept of life and living fills us with awe and wonder. It is something to be treasured and lived to our fullest potential.
In the last few months my family has experienced sudden and unexpected loss of life. It seems our hearts have barely had time to recover between the sorrow that has persistently knocked on our doors. During this time we also have family members that are dealing with terminal and life changing illness. I find myself feeling anxious every time I log onto facebook, receive a text or answer my phone. You see those that have exited our world has not been limited to the very old and sick. Those would have brought intense sorrow but also some degree of understanding. Rather for us it has been our young and vibrant future family and world leaders that left us with no warning and no chance to prepare.
Their departure reminds me of the encouragement my cousin, Ms Vic, said to me as she was preparing to transition from this life; live, nothing else is important, live, don’t worry about credit, money and the cares of life just live life to the fullest. Since her departure I have made a decision to live consciously and on purpose moment by moment. I have set aside any need to judge, condemn or live up to some ideology of what should or should not be. I have determined to make an effort to be present when dealing with those that I love and serve. Yes, I meant to say serve because in my heart and mind I serve each and everyone with whom I connect. Living to me is seeing, being and fully giving of myself selflessly. It is daily encouraging, motivating and igniting faith in others. It’s absorbing, finding and sharing information that enables one to live, love and be better. It is understanding we are all a work in progress. It is knowing that none of us gets to choose when our work is over. It is not knowing what age, what way or when we will take our last breath. It is being comforted that our memories will live on in the life of others. It is knowing that our legacy lies not in what we have done but in whom we have been each and every day in the life of others. Living means we are blessed w
Some lights shine for a fleeting moment, others longer and others brighter; but all leave an impact. So today I want to set aside my sorrow and personal need to grieve. I want to reach into my heart and ponder on the gratitude of having known or been exposed to these wonderful beings. So, although, each of you have made your exit your light and life lives on in me and I will diligently carry the torch of living life fully until time for my exit. Each day I am alive is a day I get a “do over.” I get the chance to #livelifefully! So today I am filled with joy and happiness, and my light just got brighter because of you.
