A letter to the past….

Dear Past Me —-

You’ve made it this far, and even though at moments we question it, sanity is still intact. Who would’ve thought, right????

Be prepared for some seriously rough spots, but keep your head up, because even though you’re gonna hurt, and doubt, and at times be tempted to throw in the towel, know that the good times, are gonna be GREAT TIMES.

You are gonna meet amazing people, you’ll lose touch with some, but a few will be there for the long haul. Cherish every moment with every one.

Trust your instincts. You doubt yourself too often, or ignore your gut in order to avoid rocking the boat. TO HELL WITH THE BOAT AND WORRIES ABOUT WAVES!!!!! Follow what your heart tells you, no matter what.

Hold your head up high, trust me, you’ve earned it.

Teach me a lesson….

It’s so crazy how life works.  You know there has to be a purpose for each event, a lesson learned.  But it’d be nice to know what said purposes are. 

Can’t help but feel overwhelmed at times.  Wanting to throw hands up to the sky and yell WHAT NEXT????  Why me????

But there’s a purpose.  Where you are in life is where you’re meant to be.  To experience that specific moment, and feel those exact feelings, to learn as much from it as possible and then move on.  I’ll reiterate the move on part.   🙂

Best Is Yet To Come (red lyrics)

image

Afraid it won’t come ’round again
Afraid to move on
Wishing I could go back when
Everything was easier and meaningful to me

Wanting all we left behind
Like it’s the answer
An hour glass we can’t rewind
Holding back the life that I’ve denied for so long

Can I find my way to you?
And After all that we’ve been through
And after all we left in pieces
I still believe our lives have just begun
Cause now the past can be outrun
And I know you are the reason
I still believe the best is yet to come

A photograph’s still in your hands
Afraid to let it go
The minutes rain like grains of sand
And time is just a war that’s stealing dreams from within
So come and take them back again

And After all that we’ve been through
And after all we left in pieces
I still believe our lives have just begun
Cause now the past can be outrun
And I know you are the reason
I still believe the best is yet to come

I won’t turn around
Let it all slip away
I’m never backing down
Cause tomorrow’s a new day
And everything can change

And After all that we’ve been through
And after all we left in pieces
I still believe our lives have just begun
Cause now the past can be outrun
And I know you are the reason
I still believe the best is yet to come

I still believe the best is yet to come
The best is yet to come
I still believe the best is yet to come

No day, but today…

There is no future, there is no past, I live this moment as my last. —Rent, the musical

Recent events in my life have reminded me how precious life is. And how its easily ended abruptly, without warning or explanation. None of us are guaranteed a tomorrow.

And with that, I say, or rather I shout from the rooftops, LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE ANYTHING LESS THAN HAPPY!!!!

Any given moment may be the last. To truly think about this, it seems morbid, or depressing. But it’s truth. All we really have is the here and now, this very moment, make the most of it. Make it the best moment of your life if possible.

While on this topic I must say that life is too short for regrets as well… Why regret anything in life?

In that moment, yes you may over think, over analyze, and obsess over which path to take when you stumble across that infamous (and very much inevitable) fork in the road.

But take a step back and give it thought, really think about previous experiences with regret. Think about the last time you were faced with one of those forks, obviously a choice was made. And if it resulted in feelings of regret— what is it that you regretted, what you did, or what you didn’t do????? I know in my life the things I didn’t do, words I didn’t say, those are the things I end up regretting down the road.

So why do we stress??? STOP STRESSING! Put an end to all fears, doubts and freak outs. It’s your life, you’re the one that has to live it. Trust yourself.

You know what you want and need better than anyone. Follow your heart and have faith in what you feel. Pay attention to the world that surrounds you. The universe will nudge you in the right direction if you’re willing to let it.

Regardless have faith in lifes way of working itself out. It may not be exactly as you hope. But it’ll still be okay. Keep positive thoughts.

The bad in life won’t last forever. Because one of the few guarantees in life is that nothing stays the same. Everything changes. And life goes on.
