Shame! Shame! Shame! Not only I am have not been here at all with a blog, now I show up and use the same title as the last one. But what can I say? I am getting older and learning all these new things.
But they are not new it is just what we always heard but didn’t believe or realize how it goes. When we are young we are invincible and think we can do it all. In reality the wall of invincibility breaks down with age and that’s when the “OH I GET IT OR OH I SEE WHAT THEY MEAN!!” comes to us!
I have lost several more people in my life. It is so hard sometimes. Some have led long good lives, some not so good but all taught me many things. All leave a small hole in my heart. I choose to remember the good from all of them.
I choose to pay attention now more than ever to what I say and how I treat people. One never knows when it may be the last thing you say.
I choose to show more kindness to everyone, again now more than ever. I see how life can just vanish! I see more and more I need to keep learning and keeping my mind open and non-judgmental because I have not walked in their shoes. And even if the stories of people are the same it never is just the same. Everyone’s experience is different even under the exact circumstances. And no matter how bad one story is there is worse!
So now that I will attend another good-bye to someone I loved. I am now really starting to appreciate getting older! Think of the Alternative!
I learn how precious our time is and the way I want to spend mind is in peace and love! Now I will appreciate life and my loved ones more and I Thank God for everyday I get to be here and appreciate life AND as I get older!
