“Life is fragile. We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow so give it everything you’ve got.”
This really hit home when I heard the news about Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and 7 other people who were tragically killed in a helicopter accident. Then, the very next day was the Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is near and dear to my heart because both my parents were survivors of this horrific time in history, where many members of my family were killed, along with countless others.
It really made me think of how life isn’t guaranteed to anyone and how we must embrace this precious gift. (That’s why they call it the present)
Then last week, I had an MRI scan on my brain which showed a 5-centimeter cyst in my frontal lobe. It is benign; however, it is something that needs to be closely watched to make sure it doesn’t grow or interfere with my cognitive and motor functions.
The message was loud and clear! Live my best life now! Don’t wait until tomorrow to begin doing what brings you joy. Love your life, give it your all and don’t be afraid to express your dreams. Work hard, play more, be kind, laugh lots and most of all create. Start right now to create your best life. We’re here for such a brief time, so let’s make the most of it.
