    Default reminder to live life to the fullest

    We had a psychiatrist die yesterday of liver cancer with mets to the brain and bone. She was working just a month ago but showing signs something was wrong. All she did was work, work work. As she was dying she voiced she wished she had done more. She never married, dated, etc. So my reminder to you all is live today to its fullest, do things you always wanted but have put off til tomorrow. Me? I am going to Hempfest in Seattle, Wa where the cops are handing out Dorito bags with the marijuana laws printed on it. This will be some fabulous people watching for sure. And then a Seahawk game tonight


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    Oh no! So sorry! I think we forget ow important it is to always take time to remember what is important in our lives. My 32-year-old son (single if anyone is looking) lost two best friends to suicide 10 years apart. I think Billy is one of the only people I know who truly knows and lives like this. It's so easy to get caught up in the small stuff. Thanks for the reminder.

    This is so true and great advice, life is way to short and you should do things you want to do even if its scary, hard or others don't approve. That's why when my job was becoming too stressful due to working short all the time, I first went down to a 3 day work week last year, but two weeks ago I actually left my job after 15 years and I feel so good about that decision. I am planning to just take the rest of the summer to de stress, and take care of some health problems, then go back to school for a career change. I'm looking forward to it and excited. It was a scary decision to leave my job and my comfort zone but once I took the leap I still feel nervous about not having a job, but if we are careful and budget, we can make due with hubby's income, and I can go back to school.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Life is too short. I used to be a workaholic but between that and my mom passing it took a massive panic attack after years of neglecting things and people around me to finally stop and smell the roses per se. You have to find the right balance between life and work or it will be gone before you know it. I just wish I would have figured it out years ago.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Life IS so brief and I know I get too caught up in the "small stuff" sometimes. Sadly, reminders like this psychiatrist, or interacting with my patients, causes me to remember what's truly important in life. Reminds me of one of my favorite songs, "These are the good old days", by Carly Simon. Not last week, not tomorrow...but right now and we got to make the best of it.

    This happens so often I worked with a girl and she retired at 57 in May 2010 was going to do everything she wanted and hadn't had the time to do in August 2010 she was diagnosed with aggressive form of Leukaemia and in Dec 2010 she passed away. Yes we should all live our time now before it is too late. Have a fun time in Seattle
