A life well lived …

Some people are so special that when they come into your life they not only make a profound impact on you, but also on many lives through you. Their influence ripples like a stone cast into a lake. It’s vast, beautiful and seemingly never ending. Their wisdom, guidance, compassion and devotion is weaved into the hearts and minds of everyone that they are directly or loosely associated with. And when they leave us, there is an acute understanding that the world has lost a hero.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you encounter a life well lived!!!

No opportunities on hold …

It’s been one heck of a week. A wonderful week filled with lots of exciting things, but holy moly, it’s been exhausting! Last night I was out late too. I’m not sure what I was thinking, HA! I knew morning was coming with all of its responsibilities. But you know what? It was worth it!

I thank God every day for doors that He opens to life’s adventures. Big or small, timed or untimely, they are all a blessing. So I seize them! If I have learned anything over the past year it’s that life can leave you tired in two different ways. The first, from being weighted down by stress, worry and other unpleasantries. And the second, by getting out there, despite it all, and having a ball anyway! Regardless of how hard it may have been at times, life has taught me to chose to do the latter. And it’s never served me wrong when I have. This decision to ACT and not WALLOW has allowed me to share incredible experiences with some beautiful souls that I would have missed otherwise. And THAT is what, I like to believe, is the definition of a life well-lived.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t put any opportunity on hold!!!

A wonderful day …

Today has been nutso crazy busy filled with tons of fun! I have literally been running since I woke up this morning …and it’s not over yet! I admit I love days like this. Smiles. Laughter. Surprises. Driving here to there. Seeing and meeting with friends … and just too packed to have a care in the world. Days like these are truly a gift and are a sign of a life well lived.

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful day!!!
