“Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain.”
A friend of mine from high school passed away early this morning after losing her two-month battle with Leukemia.
While she and I were never extremely close, I always knew her as a kind-hearted individual and I know that she touched the hearts of so many people.
I think that we take moments for granted. As a society, we don’t appreciate the little things or the little moments. Pay attention the next time you are shopping with your mom, having coffee with your dad, or laughing at memories with a friend. We are all fortunate enough to experience these things and we never know when they will be our last.
Tell those around you that you love them. Remind them that you are there for them. You never know which conversation could be your last, so make them all meaningful. You could lose any friend at any moment. You could also be the one to be lost. Never take a single moment for granted.
Choose your friends wisely. Life your life for you, not for other people. Spend time with people that make you feel good. Great, actually. Forget wasting your time on those that don’t.
Whether you are 81 years old, 21 years old, or 12 years old, live each day as if it were your last. It might be. Treat every person as though you will never see them again. You might not. Be appreciative of the things and the people that you have in your life. Never take anything for granted and love the life that you live.
