how fast it can change


In the past week I have experienced an unfortunate event in my life. Through all the hurt and sadness it has brought not only to me but, the family directly involved has got me thinking......  

How full do we live our lives?

What if your life changed in a split second.....take a moment to think about it.  Would you be content with how you are living your life? Do you feel you are fulfilling every part you are able to?

I know these questions are difficult to answer.  Maybe we don't pay enough attention to them on a day to day basis.  Thinking about oneself can be very challenging.... yet why? We as humans should want to be as happy, successful, fulfilled as possible in our daily routine. 

Life is too short to sit back and watch it pass.  Today is Monday, the beginning of the week,  I want everyone to think about their OWN lives this week, if it ended tomorrow how fulfilled would you be?

This is beautiful. Thank you so much for writing this. I've been struggling with this same issue a lot lately. I've felt life just passing me by and I want to make it stop because I know this life is meant to be LIVED! My thoughts are with you, sweet girl.

You are in my prayers girl. : ) When I'm feeling this way, I make small lists every day about small things I'm thankful for (it's what inspired my I Smile posts). I find myself overflowing with gratitude and smiles, but it only started because I took the time to stop and look. Let me know if you need any specific prayer.
