Life is too short

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers for my father these past few days.
He is doing better and will hopefully be home tomorrow.

I have done a lot of thinking these past few days.
Life is too short.
We take too many things for granted.
Our health being one of those things.

We are given one body, one life.
So many of us forget that.

We go through the daily motions, the routines.
Work-family-school-gym, etc.
 What does it all mean if you aren't being true to you?

Do not take another day for granted.

You want something?
Go and get it.

You've been waiting for a sign to make a change?
Here it is.

Go live your life, in the one body you were given.
Appreciate the small things.
 Appreciate everything.



  1. Love this - thanks for sharing. Too often we take things for granted!!!

  2. You are so right!
    Your WHOLE family is in my prayers! It takes a lot of strength when someone is sick, the whole family feels it.
    You are amazing, keep being true to you!!

  3. Ill send happy vibes your way, keep your head up girl

  7. A lot of us (including me) need to be reminded of this. Prayers to your father for a speedy recovery!

  8. I lost my sister 14 years ago and I have told myself this for the past 14 years. But it wasn't until this year that it really sank in that I needed to take care of myself so I can be around for my girls. Thank you for this beautiful post and the reminder that sometimes we tend to forget.

  9. Beautiful sentiment and so very true! Just from your posts I can tell you are close to your parents. They are lucky to have you!

    You are all lucky to have each other and will get through this. Wishing dad a happy homecoming :)

  10. Life is BEAUTIFUL!! Live it to the fullest!
