All of this aside, as the title of this posting reads, there was one "weird" thing that happened to me yesterday: I received a brochure in the mail that was advertising a contest. ....That's not that weird, you may be thinking! Well, this particular brochure was advertising a contest to win a "Free Prepaid Cremation." (Yes, you just read that correctly.) As you can imagine, I was a bit shocked to receive this in the mail! I suppose it was also a bit funny, as I have never received anything like that before! However, this little "reminder" about death was actually very thought provoking, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts with all of you.
In life, the topic of "death" is often avoided. Yet, it is the one thing that none of us can escape. This is not meant to scare anyone, it is just a reality of "physical" life. And this brochure in the mail was just another reminder to me to live it up, each and every day.
Many of you, my amazing readers, know that I am passionate about cherishing each and every moment. But, that certainly doesn't mean that all days are "perfect" and "easy." Life can be hard sometimes, and we must always choose to focus on the positives, and focus on the blessings that we have in each of our lives! We only live once - (at least as far as our natural/physical life is concerned!)
Enjoy this day, and try your very best to enjoy each and every moment. :)
