I found this quote on Pintrest and it's something I have been thinking about for awhile. Before my mom died I would worry about everything. Really more than I ever should have. I lived my life cautiously. I had a fear of so many things. I really lived my life guarded. In the last month or so I have started to think about how quickly my moms life ended. In 2 short months she was gone. She didn't want to die. I know this because she told me. I can't stop thinking about that conversation I had with her. And now those words echo in my head and I think what if that happens to me. Because it could. Would I be happy with how I have lived my life? Have I lived it passionately? Have I lived it with my whole heart involved? Did I try things, really scary things and get through it? Some of the questions I have been asking myself I can say Yes to and some no. I want to change the nos. I have so many dreams, not just for my kids but for myself and for my husband. I want to see those dreams pan out. At least try to make them happen. My mom is my inspiration to live a life that is filled with possibility and pride. Let's see what sort of things I can accomplish when I really start living my life.


  1. You have reignited the same vow that I make and remake every time I am reminded of the fragility of life. When we drop our guard we really open up to the full spectrum of human experience. It doesn't hurt nearly as often as we fear.
    You have written good words today.

  2. It's absolutely never too late! What a great post! I am sorry for your loss. Whether you're prepared or not, it's never easy.
