“Sometimes an unpleasant event shows us the way to a new path. This may seem traumatic at the time, but it is also saying that the old ways are no longer valid, or of value in your new life. It is time to cast aside whatever is hindering your progress in life and make a whole new start. Turn the leaf, sow new seeds, wear new clothes, change your appearance, move house, leave that boring job and get out there and dance. Life can end at any moment for any of us, so it is how wisely we spend our time here that really matters. You can still be serious about some aspects of your life, but leave plenty of room open for fun and for spontaneity. When we are on our death-bed, we will wish we had kicked up our heels more often, been more carefree, eaten more ice-cream, danced longer, sang out loud and showed others how much we love them. Don’t wait till then, do it now, while you are alive and still kicking.”
I’m completely addicted to tarot cards, horoscopes and readings. This one came up for me last week and I saved it as blog post, waiting for the right time. I thought it so befitting to post it today.
Life is short. The end can be sudden and shocking, or it can be long and painful. Whichever one it is, don’t live with any regrets. Say the things you want to say. Do the things you want to do. Because when the people you love pass on, you want to know that you couldn’t have told them enough times how much they mean to you and how much love they have shone on your life. You want them to know that the time you have spent together was grand and wonderful.
In the higher scheme of things, I know that everything happens for a reason. We are all human and we are meant to experience a myriad of feelings. Not just happiness and laughter, but sorrow, anger and heartbreak. We are all fragile and yet, unbelievably strong. We are tested each and every day. Sometimes it’s in the fine print and other times it’s screaming in your face. Just know that we are all one little fish in a little bowl, meant to jump into a bigger, roomier one at some point in our lives. It’s not the end. It’s a new beginning.
Thank you to all my family and friends for their amazing support. My family and I are so appreciative of everyone’s kind words and gestures. It sincerely means so much to us. From one little bowl to a big giant one.
