Thursday Thought

I wanted to start this post off by apologizing for not getting a Thursday Thought up last week. You would think that having a stress fracture would mean I have all the time in the world to sit around and do nothing, this is definitely not the case for me!

Last Thursday was spent at work, canning pickles and blackberry jam, and packing for last weekends adventure. Before I knew it, it was after midnight and I was just too tired to write down my thought. Sometimes life happens and we can't always do everything we set out to accomplish.


I have been thinking a lot about life lately. It has been almost two years since Andy and I almost died on top of Mt. Timpanogos, it feels like it was just yesterday when we both saw our lives flash before our eyes. Time is a funny thing. When I was growing up and week felt like an eternity. Now a week feels like a day. What happened?

Each of us has an expiration date and we don't know when our time will come. Life really is a fragile and precious thing. Are you living a life that you love? If not, what are you going to do to change it? Are you happy? If your not happy, why aren't you happy? Do you need to change your paradigm? Are there things in life you still want to see, do, or experience? If yes, what's holding you back? Are you on good terms with those most important to you? If not, why? What are you going to do about it? Are you holding a grudge against someone? If so, why? Do you really want to be held back by that the rest of your life? Let it go and move on. You deserve better than that!

I believe that each moment is a gift and an opportunity. What we do in life is ultimately up to us. We can live it up and enjoy life. Or we can hold ourselves back. What are you going to do? Today is a new day and a new adventure awaits!

Carpe Diem!
