In honor of a friend…

**I just got some horrible news and I’m blown away. People have many fears, and one for me (slightly) is meeting, connecting, and losing people through the transition of life. One I have no control over. It’s a little scary to brush elbows with people and to think, you’ll never brush that elbow again in life. *deep breaths

This post is in honor of a distant friend who transitioned last night, and to the ones that are still here. I hope this message seeps into your heart and soul of understanding.

So many of us sit on our lives.
I’m too tired. I’m too old. I’m too this and I’m too that. While the circumstance for others have just ran out.
It was me twice before, so I know.
I’m tired of preaching this same msg.
Today, I only speak of it for people to understand my ways of action.
I used to be the person who was too old, too tired, and too sophisticated to do this or that.
Yeah that was me.
Respected in the eyes of many while wasting away at not living to the highest expression possible. β€ͺ#β€Žprettybasic‬
Living in limitations and boundaries.
The religious queen who got it right, over and over again.
No one can touch me.
I know more than ever, today that, basic, limits, boundaries, the basic everyday life was and is not made for me.
So when you see me not raise caution to the weather, my age, location, people or circumstance, understand that I’ve danced with all those things a few times. Including death.
An none, especially circumstance (death) will not care if you’re young, old, tired, sophisticated or not.
Matter a fact, circumstance has not the ability to care.
So..live as you have the chance.
You are breathing, now!
You have all the time in the world to sleep, forever…
Make memories, make mistakes, grow, learn, eat, nap, make love, write, laugh, love others who hate you, give to those who don’t deserve, spend time with the ones you love the most, and enjoy the life you have created.
Circumstance will meet us all.
One day.
