Yesterday I found out that a dear friend of mine tragically lost her brother. On Saturday I attended a memorial service for a good friend’s mother. It is apparent that death is amongst us but what isn’t always so apparent is our opportunities for life and living, like saying “I love you” more often, taking risks to help others, going after dreams. We are all given chances to live our life to its fullest. It’s up to us to be available to those paths, recognize them, take action and begin the journey to living.
