Life is so short and we are dead and gone for a long time.
Some are taken from this world long before it seems fair or even possible. The hurt and rage and disbelief affecting all of us as we feel a personal grief or a broader, collective despair. Our world has seen far too much of this of late.
Some, sadly, take themselves from this world leaving us to wonder about the intense pain that could cause some beautiful human being to do away with life, love and possibilities. It can be all too much to cope with and our tears well over.
Our questions might be about how this could have happened ? Why did someone so precious have to die ?
Did they change the world somehow, however simple or small ? Did they leave this planet a better place for being here ? Did they gently touch someone's life ?
The question for all of us is not about why we have to leave this world one day but how we will live each moment of every day while we are here to ensure it is a crazy, magical, mystical, beautiful, meaningful, passionate, purposeful, loving, meaningful life that brings us fulfilment, happiness and hope.
Ask yourself now.
What are you waiting for ?
Are you waiting to become rich ? To deserve that holiday ? Until the kids have grown ? Retirement ? Exhaustion ? Heart attack ? Accident or worse ? Are there choices and changes for you to make ? New directions to take in your journey ?
Be passionate, happy and fulfilled now. Live now. Love now. Dance now.
Grab hold of that special person, hold as tightly as you can until your hearts beat in time and your spirits merge into one.
Dance in each other's arms until the Sun comes up,
even if you hate the song
or have two left feet.
Dance and hold and enjoy and feel and celebrate and love......
Dance While You Can.
