This past weekend I attended a beautiful ‘send off’ for a young man who passed away in his prime. The party was beautifully bittersweet, in some moments I found myself tearing up as I admired the love and strength of his family. They were stunningly lovely and above all gracious to all of us, his guests, emboldening us to enjoy ourselves, to dance, to live out loud because that is the way he wanted it, how he requested it….
I learn over and over again that life is fleeting…never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that this tall, strong man would have passed so young. So by all means LIVE Authentically! LIVE Boldly! LIVE Freely! LIVE every moment! Whatever you do just LIVE!
This short post was inspired by the above quote which a beautiful soul posted on Facebook…she got it from author Paulo Coelho’s FB wall…don’t you just love the power of Social Media…
Till another bit of inspiration I am yours as always
