The above photo is our dog, Penny, sunning herself in our backyard. It doesn’t seem to have anything to do with my title, but it does. She’s content, she’s happy, she’s enjoying life.
We’re not promised tomorrow. We’re not promised do overs.
Time spent worrying about what we don’t have, or arguing with those with whom we disagree, or envying those who seem to have more than we do, is time spent wasting our lives.
The holiday season will be extremely sad for those who will be experiencing a “first” without their partner, without their mom, without their dad, without their sibling, without their friend or other family members with whom they were close.
Each of us at one time or another, has walked that awful road.
Many of us have regrets for things said or done, or things unsaid and not done, until it was to late too make it right or too late to do whatever we should have.
Yes, I’m in a melancholy mood as I write this today. I have regrets.
The key to not having those regrets is to live each day as if it’s our last. To make sure the people we love KNOW we love them. To treat others as we want to be treated.
Life is short. Make the most of yours. Follow your heart. Chase your dreams. Be content. Be happy. Enjoy life.
See you next time,
