My cousin Sonia died earlier this month, she was only 52 years old.  She was diagnosed with cancer less than two months before.  My experience of loved ones dying has been minimal (thankfully) but I have experienced death nonetheless.  However, this is different.  This is someone that has been taken from us, and from her own life way too soon.  It’s incredibly surreal, to say the least.  As upsetting as it has been, this has really put life into perspective for me, life’s too short.

Life’s too short to hold on to dead weight, if you have people in your life that drag you down and/or make you feel bad about yourself, get rid of them!

Life’s too short to hold grudges; if you want the person to be in your life, then discuss it and let it go. If not, then just let the person and the negativity go.

Life’s too short to not do what you want to do.

Life’s too short to do something because you think that someone else thinks that’s what you should do.

Life’s too short to dwell on the past; learn from it and move on.

Life’s too short to wait for somebody else’s acceptance or love; look to yourself!

Life’s too short to take loved ones for granted.

I will live the rest of my life with my cousin Sonia in mind.  We can be taken from this earth at any given moment, we have to make sure we live it in the most positive way.  Live with a kind and clean heart; make mistakes, learn from them, and put those lessons into practice in the future.

Because LIFE’S TOO SHORT, enjoy it while you can!

    Thank you so much for sharing. I’m so so sorry for your loss! It’s so true that we rather dwell on the dark negative aspect of life when it should be the opposite! I definitely try to live my life to the fullest the best way I can. Life is waaaaayyyy to short. We all need to reflect on what’s important to us what brings us peace and joy and happiness because that is what life is about. Many blessings to you and your loved ones. I pray that God gives you strength as some days may be harder than others and losing someone is definitely the worst. Keep your head up, stay strong. Live in love and embrace every moment God gives You! XO you are beautiful! With Love, Keke

    Thank you so much Keke!!! That is so beautiful, I really appreciate it! I don’t really share much about my personal life, but I just felt this had to be said. I really can’t stand negativity anymore, and so much has happened over the last couple of years that could really turn anyone negative. I just feel we have to fight it, positivity wins! Love & respect, C x
