This past weekend I had a GLORIOUS time with my brother and sister-in-law who visited from Indiana. They were here to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. I made reservations for them to enjoy an incredible dinner at one of L.A.'s hoighty-toightiest restaurants, but alas, they were so pooped from running around all day, they slept instead. Oh well, that's just fine. Spontaneity on a vacation (and in life) is just fine by me.
Not too long ago, I used to tell myself that spending a maximum (3) days hanging out with visitors was all I could muster. For some reason, I always thought it was an inconvenience to break up my daily routine to fit in time with others. Even if they were people I love. Well, my volunteer work with the elderly has shown me CRYSTAL CLEARLY that I should enjoy time with loved ones every moment I can, 'cause when it's over, it's OVER!!!!! So, that's PRECISELY what I'm doing these days. And, truth be told, I'm LOVIN' it!!!!!
Having said all the above, let the record state:
THESE are (5) thoughts I NEVER want to have before I take my last breath:
1.) I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2.) I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
3.) I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
4.) I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5.) I wish that I had let myself be happier.
So, if anyone who loves me wants to visit with me one day
