I’ve shared so much supposed “wisdom” on this blog. I claimed to follow the Universe’s lead and listen to my Soul. But here I am again: Overwhelmed and overwrought without enough time to make a phone call or post a blog. How does this keep happening?
Today as I write this, I feel so out of balance. Sadness seems to have consumed me and I’m fighting it. Two years ago yesterday my nephew died. And next week it will be two years since my brother died. I’m thinking about death a lot. I’m afraid of losing people I really love. I believe there is more after this life but I don’t “KNOW.” I want to KNOW for SURE without any doubts. But I guess none of us have that. Some folks claim to believe/know but that’s generally BS. Most of us (ALL?) faced with death will still be afraid.
Life is short. Too damn short. I want to squeeze so much into it…and squeeze so much out of it. I’m wringing the hell out life! But it’s too much. . . . I’m trying too hard. Days are cluttered and I can’t really focus on the things that matter.
What really matters? What are those shiny moments? What makes me happy?
When I think of HAPPY…
I think of my dogs… and cats…family…friends…running…laughing…food…
Life is too short to be anything but happy. Love deeply, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything with no regrets and forget the past with exception of what you have learned and remember everything happens for a reason. (anonymous)
And do what YOU want to do…not what you think you SHOULD do or what you think others expect you to do. Say NO to those things that steal your energy. Say YES to the things that make your heart happy.
For now, I just want to sit on my porch and watch hummingbirds.
