Yall, I apologize in advance for this heavy kind of post, but I think sometimes we bypass the hard topics for ones that are more lighthearted and happy, rather than things that may need to be said.
This year, I have witnessed some pretty tragic events that have transpired to those closest to me and to friends of friends, acquaintances, etc. The reason for me saying this is that it really hits close to home and makes me stop to think twice.
None of us are guaranteed a tomorrow, so live today like it's your last. I say this all the time, but really...take a moment out of your day to stop and look around and never take one minute for granted. Tell your family and friends you love them and never walk away with words unspoken, because you may never get to say what you wanted and then how would you feel...
"Life is too short to be anything but happy"...one of my very favorite quotes. And yes, that is how I live my life, and you bet I won't be changing that outlook...ever. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and challenges we all face, because life is hard, but don't spend your time worrying about the things you can't change or about the things that really don't matter in the grand scheme of things.
Spend time with the people who make you happy, get outside and enjoy everything the Lord blessed us with on this earth, hug and kiss your children because you can never do it too much, don't get too caught up with work and miss out on living life, and most of all, promise yourself that you'll live the best life you can.
