My mother’s wisdom

>

I’ve been really sad the past few days about my mom dying and, frankly, I’ve been sorely missing her for lots and lots of reasons, not the least of which is that, when she died, she took with her my best source for new material.  For instance, she left me this thought-provoking gem which I’ll now share with you:

“It really sucks when you reach old age only to find that you were nothing more than a bit player in your own life.” 

Are you living your life as a bit player?  Are you so wrapped up in whatever it is that you’re wrapped up in that you aren’t really even living?

Take it from my mom, who would tell you if she were still here, “Life is short.  Go live it like it matters.”

Have a great weekend!
