Breathe. Let go.
And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
~ Oprah Winfrey
This weekend I was reminded again that we can't count on anything. My sister-in-law's 21 year old nephew was shot late Friday night while in a car with some friends. The bullet went through his shoulder and severed his spine. He will be paralyzed. My other sister-in-law may have a reoccurrence of her skin cancer. She'll find out later this week whether or not she has to have another piece of her face cut out.
This moment is the only one I have for sure. I can't waste it. I can't count on tomorrow and I can't count on someone else being there for me. In one area of my life, I've spent the last year waiting for tomorrow, and it never came. I had to quit waiting and take care of myself. My heart was wide open and I'm not entirely sure I'll ever be able to be that open again. I'll have to take it a day at a time and see what happens.
