Recently a sweet friend of mine died suddenly and totally unexpectedly. She was only a few years older than me and had no signs of health problems. I have so many thoughts and feelings about her death but cannot properly articulate them, so I’ll just say she was an amazing woman and I will miss her.
What I can articulate is the need to enjoy life NOW. We cannot wait until next year to do things we have been wanting to do for years. Live like you are dying because you do not know if you will see tomorrow’s sunrise. AND, enjoy each birthday as they come, regardless of the number attached to it.
Yesterday I turned 41. Last year I struggled with the fact I was turning 40. Honestly, the anticipation of it was worse than the actual event. Now I’m 41 but that is just a number; every age we get to is a gift.
All that said, I want to throw a little Celebrate Life party with a giveaway and a special discount. I am total introvert so having a real-life party would be an agonizing experience. Virtual parties are perfect for me!
