I have two girlfriends who are like sisters to me. Michelle and Maricela. You may as well call us the Three Musketeers. Wherever one goes, the other two are sure to follow! One of the musketeers is turning 40 on Monday. And she doesn't want anyone to make a big deal about it. So we're honoring her wishes -except for this mention on my blog! lol Which I know she reads! Trust me Michi, turning 40 is "all gravy, baby!" Age is but a number, but life is what YOU make it. Remember our mantra" "Life is short, so just live it!"
How about you? Do you live life or does life live you?
I can't remember how long ago but trust me, it was a long time ago! I watched a movie that spoke to me in ways that no one else ever had. It starred Robin Williams and a very young Ethan Hawke. Dead Poets Society.
I loved that movie! It made me want to do things, and to try even if I was afraid to! It's one of the reasons why I keep writing. Writing is my passion. And although it seems at times I will never, ever sell my novel, I know in my heart, that I will. Now, I don't know if it wll be Oprah Winfrey worthy (keep fingers crossed please) but it will be worthy for sure! And that's the gist of this post for tonight.
Do you live life? Or does life live you?
Often times we get caught up in the hurry ups and don't be lates of our lives. We totally forget about the here and now. About what is important and what is not. Lately, I have been "making" myself stop and notice the "forgotten". You know, the sunset, the full moon, the thunderstorms, the rainbows. All of that is out there for us and its free! lol
I don't mean to get all Pollyanna on you, it's just that, in reflecting on my life lately, and the upcoming milestone birthday of Michelle, aka "Coca-cola" (She'll kill me but, whatever! I nicknamed her Coca-Cola (CC for short)because she's got this body shaped like a coca cola bottle!)
I felt the urge to write about "sucking the marrow out of life".
No one wants regrets.
So, that's my PSA for the weekend. Go out and LIVE and LAUGH! ---I know I will!
