The trouble is you think you have time. ~Buddha
I have read a lot about grief, depression, emotions, learning to live again, etc. This simple quote written by the great Buddha sums it all up. You think you have time. If you spend all of your time (which I am guilty of doing) in your past, you will never have a future. It is so true. We have to find our own way of getting through the trials and obstacles in life. Once we do that, get them behind us, then one step at a time, forward, not back. Nobody said it would be easy. And once you get through one thing, Bam, something else will hit. But that is life and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I am not trying to come across as “preaching”. I am only sharing what I have experienced with the hopes of helping someone else. I feel that is my purpose now. To help others.
Life really is short. We often get too busy with our own lives and forget to call or visit our friends and loved ones. Stop and take the time to at least make a phone call. You will not regret it. Tell those you love how much they mean to you, and never ever take anyone or anything for granted. I have said that many times, and will continue to do so. We never know what the next moment holds. Enjoy life!
