A few thoughts on life..
Recently I had to deal with important moment in the lives of people I love.
It takes death, breakups and old age, to put things in perspective. 
There have been several of these moments this past month where I've had to put my life on hold and be with loved ones. 
But it's good for all of us to to be reminded of what is really important. 
One of my best friends has recently lost her father to cancer in a matter of 3 weeks. The same father that she has been fighting with for the last few years. 
Parents going through turmoil in their relationship and eventually facing life and love's decision which will impact and be make theme face the rest of their few years. 
A parent facing the appraisal of his life and his achievements and failures..
Girlfriends enjoying the exciting news of their first pregnancy and the birth of their baby soon..
I spent the last few weeks, listening, giving advices and support at huge turning point in their lives... It was definitely a reality check and very exhausting moments for the mind, soul, and heart. It makes you face your own destiny and choices in life.
But it also reminded me of how each day with the people I love is truly a gift. 
Life has bigger plans for us than checking emails all day and worrying about our haunting 'to do' lists. 

We should do our best to live FULLY as if each day is our last and spend time with our loved ones. ♥
