Life is too precious to live it half-assed.

 One of my dearest friends just lost her husband to pancreatic cancer today. Another will be heading down to visit her mother who just had another 4 stints placed in her heart.  My prayers are with them and their families.

And these are my thoughts…

 If you haven’t told the people whom you love that you love them, do it now. Even better, show them.

If you have hurt them, ask for forgiveness. If you have been hurt, forgive.  Be gracious in your forgiving.

If someone brings you happiness, do everything in your power to keep them in your life…regardless.

I do not believe you can ever tell those you love that you love them too much. 

Practice loving with great abandon.

Give joyfully to others.

Drop the drama. Live from your heart.

Life is too precious to live it half-assed.

Regretting it calls you to repair it. But don’t hold onto it, then it is a missed opportunity.

Believe in each other. Expect the best in all situations.

Never fear the truth. It might be painful, but is the shortest path to a fulfilled life.

Remember you are loved, always, deeply and with opened arms.

    Flipping through my blogging chronicles – this one felt right to reblog and try to see if I connected my FB page correctly.
