Some random Sunday thoughts.

Life is so short - embrace what you have, don't think about what you don't have and use your time wisely.  You never know if someday you're going to be told that you have an expiration date.  Live like that day is tomorrow.  Don't have regrets.  Don't put things off until it's a "better" time - because really, there's never a "better" time. 

I got some crappy news this weekend.  I knew that something was wrong, just couldn't put my finger on it.  Now so much makes sense.  I can't share it, but just know that it puts a whole new spin on life and what it means.  And really, how short and sometimes SO fucking unfair it is.

It makes me think of a man who turned his back on a child when he was one.  Because he was mad at his mother.  If that's not biting your nose off to spite your face, I don't know what is.  What would happen if all of a sudden this man got news that he had 1, 2 or 3 years at the most to live.  Would he then realize how much of an asshole he'd been?  And for what?  Because he was taken to court over child support which is something that she swore she'd never do.  Well - he swore that he loved her.  We all know how that turned out. 

If nothing else, just realize that tomorrow could be it.  Or next week.  If you were given a certain amount of time to live - how would you spend it?  Would you have regrets?  Would you right any wrongs?  Would you LIVE?
