Seize the Day!

Today I found out about the death of a friend's daughter.  It was another reminder of how incredibly short life is.  She was a fairly young lady, but we all know that death has no age limit.  There used to be a time that it seemed as if old people were the only people dying, but that has changed.  Today it's young and old people.  Finding out about this young lady's death made me immediately reflect upon my life as well as the lives of my loved ones.  We're only here for a short period of time, and when that time is up, life as we know it, is over.  Make the most of each day that you're given.  Find something to be grateful for from the moment that you wake up until the moment you go to sleep.  Life is tough, but it is great to be alive.  Any day above ground is a good day.  Whatever aspirations you may have, don't put them off for tomorrow, work on them today.  If you truly love someone, tell them.  You don't know when your last words to them will be your last words.  Stop stressing about the small stuff.  Stress is a killer in more ways than one.  Take care of yourself, because if you don't, no one else will.  Above all else, make the most important person in the world happy; you!
