How many of you have watched the movie Beaches with Bette Midler?
I have….many times with my mom.
In case you are not familiar, it is about two best friends who were thick as thieves but later have to come to terms with separating because one of them became sick and will leave her daughter behind for the other friend to raise because she is dying.
So what does “You’re not dead yet: so stop living as if you are!” mean to you?
Well for me it means we all need go out there in life and give it a try and never stop until it is truly the end.
As I get older I realize how valuable and precious life is. While we are here we all should get out and explore, take risks, laugh and see the world.
We are here for a short time and owe it to ourselves to make use of it with some gratitude and not take our time here for granted!
We are all born with individual gifts but living as if the world is ending you will never get to test out your fullest potential.
