Whew! The past few weeks have been such a rollercoaster! I lost two loved ones on the same day. Still in shock and disbelief. One was one of my dearest friends ever! Rest In Peace Schmaal! Feels super weird writing this but as she would say "It is what it is". Life has a way of twisting and turning and I am reminded that we aren't completely in control BUT we do have choices to make on a daily basis. We really should be living each day as if it is our last. My mom always told me that no matter what anyone says "You ALWAYS have a choice". I have carried that with me. What about you? What are your thoughts? What choices do you aim to make? I try to make choices that will strengthen my present and my future and I make it a point to never hurt or harm others. 2020 taught me so much and the first quarter of 2021has taught me even more. I could go into great detail but the moral of it all is that...life goes on. People die, people get sick, people lose jobs, tragedy strikes, stuff happens...all at a fast pace. Even faster, the rollercoaster called life is picking up speed. Babies are being born, families are growing, people are walking into their purpose, all at an extreme rate of immeasurable speed. Sometimes the rollercoaster will go slow and sometimes it will go fast. We have no idea how long our ride is...that isn't in our control so we should make the best of what we do have. We should always remember that trouble won't always last and we should not be afraid to show love...the opportunity may not be available for long. Life is truly too short for the stress and chaos. While Schmaal and I were on great terms, I wish we had more time...I want to enjoy the people I do have for the remainder of the time that I have. Time flies. Let's make the best of it!
