We never stop learning, do we?
That’s what makes our journey all the more enriching.
This optimist is all about second chances and turning the other cheek.
But, I got thinking… and of course bounced it off one of my confidantes: when is enough enough?
Of course I wasn’t surprised by the response: “G, always take the high road. Accept the apology you did not receive and more importantly, know that this is not about you.”
And so, as I continue along my merry way, I shall no longer waste a second on the detestable, impertinent behavior of those who choose to be that way.
Life is too short.
I was reminded of that earlier this month as I stood in a mortuary (the first time ever) and looked at my aunt; may her soul rest in peace. Here was someone with a heart of gold, someone who made such a huge impact on all those who met her. In that moment, all the negativity, toxic behavior and choices (self and others) mean absolutely NOTHING.
It can be over just like that… **claps once**
Unless you are a passive aggressive, narcissistic soul then living a purpose driven life is probably the last thing on your mind. For the rest, go out there and love the people who deserve your love and pray for those who choose otherwise.

Don’t waste another moment.
Don’t miss an opportunity to show appreciation and love.
Don’t allow any negative interaction(s) to steal your peace and joy.
We lost a very special aunt earlier today. Our hearts are shattered and our minds are numb. In that moment when we received the news, it felt as though our collective world stood still.
The heartache was tangible and tears flowed freely like the Jordan. Whispers of: “Why? Why her? Why now? It’s not fair…” could be heard.
As someone who always has a Plan A and B, I found myself unable to move or even utter a word. Glued to my seat.
I find myself moving through different emotions.
Losing an amazing person who played a significant part in your childhood is a bitter pill to swallow. The thought of not hearing that hearty laugh or seeing her Colgate smile is hard to digest.
It just seems unfair.
I’m thankful for the times we shared, the fond memories and advice she so eagerly dispensed. I know without a doubt she’s in Heaven and God has certainly welcomed her home with open arms.
For the rest of us, we need oceans of grace to keep going without her. One day at a time…
Thank you for taking the time to read.
P.S Love and appreciate those near and dear to you!
