    Life'S Too Short So Don'T Waste A Moment

    “Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat youright. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would...

    Somebody should tell us,

    right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows. Michael Landon Jr.

    Make Every Moment Count

    I pledge today to make every moment count. To do the best for myself and others and not waste time on regrets, self-doubt, or self-loathing. I believe that this is the only chance I will have to live my life, and to waste that chance through any act of "poor me" hesitation is...

    My thoughts are all over the place

    as I write this, my mind clouded. I've been contemplating things in my life... mentally tracing through the "what if's"... because those are the things that haunt me the most. Lost in my own world, the phone rings and my daughter's voice echoes in my ear. I can tell...

    Ha Ha!

    That's what I used to do when I heard that statement. I laughed because I wasn't buying into that crap. Nowadays, I have a completely different take on things. It seems like just yesterday my dad was being a jerk to everyone at a family function, but not enough to ruin it...

    Friends who know me might scold me -

    but here goes. I was planning to drive down to the beach last Saturday, just for the day. I originally meant to go by myself. Then I made a mistake: I invited my man (long-term troubled relationship) to come with me. I felt guilty because I haven't been Working On The...

    ♥ Do What You Love ♥

    ♥ I truly do love my job, it's a blessing. Yes, it's mostly boring and thankless. At times abuse filled, violent and tiring, but then there are the moments when your the only one there to help, so you don't ignore, you don't walk past, you don't even have a second thought, you...

    I wholeheartedly agree with this statement

    I am unhappily married

    and contemplating divorce. I also have a major crush on another man. I should add - I don't fall for guys easily. They have to give me a lot of encouragement, and have a brain as well as sex appeal. As it stands now, both my H and my crush are only giving me scraps. OK - fine...

    Life Is Short

    I believe life is short and you should make the most of it. You only get one life, one chance to live, so don't take anything for granted and do all you can with the life that you have. Life is what you make of it, and make the most that you can of it. Life is shorter than...

    The Simple Things

    At a picnic on Saturday, I chose a bag of chips instead of the healthier option of an apple. I mentioned this to a new friend of mine, whom I found out lost his daughter to the tragedy on 9-11-01. He grabbed a chip from my bag and said, “Life is too short, enjoy the simple...
