My family recently lost a wonderful woman, my aunt Kathleen. It was quiet shocking, because while we knew she had cancer, she was being treated and the prognosis wasn’t bad. Things took a very quick turn for the worst, and she passed peacefully on Monday.
As always, death brings thoughts about life and such. I always think of life as being both short and long. You don’t know how much time you have, so it’s important to fill it with the people you love and the things you enjoy doing. And not just big, bucket list types of things… small things too. Maybe you really enjoy reading, or playing video games, or hiking. All great things, so make sure you are doing them often.
And most of all, don’t be ashamed of what you like. Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in what other people might be thinking of us and how we spend our time. In fact, many times it stops us from doing things we enjoy. I know that I have been guilty of this and need to stop worrying about that and just do what I enjoy. I hope you will too.
