Well now things have finally settled down and after chatting with a friend last night before he left the centre after his rental I know he’ll be ok. He was the friend/brother of the one that had passed away last week and as he said, “my heart will always ache but if anyone knew Jay then they would know he would not want life to stop because he’s no longer here”. Now that’s what I call a strong man that is in touch with his feelings. His smile was genuine and as he thanked me for talking with him I felt myself changing deep within. Sometimes one has to look past their own upsets and emotional turmoil and have empathy for someone else and what they are going through.
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down probably will. You'll have your heart broken and you'll break others' hearts. You'll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you'll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you've never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. you just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts. Don't be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.
