Contemplating Mortality

"Think of your family today and every day thereafter, don’t let the busy world of today keep you from showing how much you love and appreciate your family.” - Unknown Author

This weekend my wifes family suffered a tragic loss, and it is not the first this year.
The world has lost a kind young soul, taken well before his time. My heart goes out to his friends and family, no words can help the pain and nothing will ever replace the loss they have suffered.

We only have a precious little amount of time granted to us, individually we are temporary fixtures on this planet. Too much time and energy is wasted on material things and the rat race of the 9-5 world, when the real wealth we all hold is the people in our lives. So please, I beg you, live your life. Tell those close to you how much you love them, hold them close, laugh with them, LIVE with them. Enjoy every second with them, cherish the precious moments and appreciate the blessings you have in your life. It is so easy to lose sight of the things that really matter. The past is history and the future is uncertain, banish your regrets and worries and live in the here and now as much as you possibly can. Seize the day, chase your dreams and truly LIVE your life.

“Love your family. Spend time, be kind & serve one another. Make no room for regrets. Tomorrow is not promised & Today is short.” - Anon



  1. Completely and utterly agree. Tell those you love that you love them - you may never get that chance again. I know this to be true.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, love to you all
