My friend Tony wrote these incredibly touching words on why you shouldn’t put off I love you’s. Why saying goodbye comes way to fast and why you should always let those near and dear to you know that they have a place in your heart.
I wanted to share something very important that we should all take to heart. In this life all you have is your loved ones and your memories, and I finally realized after all these years you have to take advantage of them whenever you can.
There may not be a next fishing trip, the next cruise, the next family get together. I have buried more friends young than I have been to weddings, two this year that started seemingly innocent as a cold. So don’t take for granted that there will be a next time, don’t let it get to “it’s been far too long” because you never know when too long will become too late.
Don’t be afraid to take that trip, spend the money, do something out of your comfort zone because that’s where our best memories come from. Nobody talks about how awesome it was to sit home alone instead of making memories and I have made that mistake all too many times myself. Don’t be afraid to tell your friends you love them, that they mean something to you.
Spend the money, spend your time, make things happen with the people you care about. Don’t let the excuses, the laziness, the long drive, the lack of funds, the easy way out rob you of your life experiences. Money isnt the end goal of our lives, that’s not why we work, its a tool to be used to manifest the life you want to live. Go out and do it because there’s no guarantee there will be a next time.
Thank you Tony, you have touch mine and many others hearts with your words
