Live for now

As my 55th birthday draws nearer (10 days) I’ve begun to do some reflecting.

It’s been a hard road. It’s been an amazing journey. It’s been a learning experience. It’s been filled with a myriad of emotions.

I used to say the only thing I did right in my life was being a mother, raising my children to be the incredible human beings they are today. I’ve done so much more.

Looking back at the past, looking at the present, and looking into the future, I have to amend that statement. It’s not a right or wrong thing, this life we live.

We travel through time seeking something…always looking…always needing…forever wanting…something.

At the end when we take our last breath we realize what it is…to live.

Why wait until the last breath?
