Live fully: laugh loudly, cry honestly, sleep deeply, eat hartily and love unconditionally
I've added it to the end of a few forum posts, lately, or some version of that, anyhow. It occures to me that those are words I have really taken to heart lately. That keeps me fighting past the fear, when it rears its ugly head, moving forward, and looking for the beauty and pleasure in every day, even the ones where Sam and I seem to be constantly on different pages.
I'm not sure where those words first came from. They sort of popped out in a post I made on one of the forums, I think. But they stayed with me (which is a little unusual considering I can't remember what I ate for breakfast, or if I ate breakfast most days) and I've carried them around in my head for maybe a week or 2 now. That has to mean something.
So I'm taking those words on as my new mantra, my words to live by, and my reminder that life is stoo precious to squander by being afraid.
Now, if I could just figure out how to change my signature...............
