Oh Precious Life

Life: Appreciate it as much as you can. Tomorrow is not promised. Love each other and please learn to forgive those who have wronged you. Honestly, it's not that important to hold on to hurts of the past. Not only will it not accomplish anything, but it's also not mentally healthy. Let go and move forward with your life. It's precious and it's the most beautiful thing in the world. Please appreciate your loved ones -- whomever you call family. Say to them that you love them.

Yes, sometimes it does take a tragedy to wake us up to realize what's really important. If you have the opportunity to talk to someone that you've not talked with for a long time, if you have the opportunity to hug someone that you've not hugged in a long while, go do it. Make it happen!

Surround yourself with positivity and accept where you are in life and then challenge your fears by tackling them. Ask yourself what are you to be afraid of? Overcome those obstacles and remember there is something great out here for you to accomplish. Please take care...
