Live every day as if it were your last, because sooner or later, you’ll be right.
I’ve accomplished quite a bit in my life. As I stated in an earlier post “I put in my time, I served my sentence, and I’ve paid my penance. So now, IT’S ON!!!”
When I was younger, there were a great many things I wanted to accomplish in my life. Mostly wants, and a few basic needs. The road that I followed was not the one I intended to take, and I am eternally grateful for that. The “other” road could have never provided the “value” that I have obtained in my life. I have succeeded in raising my children, I have succeeded in love, I have succeeded in living. This road is full of future possibilities. This road has developed my character in a way that ensures that I am able to appreciate all that I am, and all those around me, infinitely more deeply, than I could have ever desired.
I’ve been graced with a beautiful wife, whom not only has gifted me with 2 fantastic children, but has cultivated a nurturing environment for our family to thrive in. While we may not always agree with each other we always endure. My wife was a conduit to amazing experiences, that on my own, I would never have had the pleasure of enjoying. She is the glue that holds us all together, and she is my Valkyrie that will lift me to Valhalla when my time comes. I thank her for holding me, and helping me, as we ventured, and continue our journey together. A life without this love would have been severely lacking indeed.
I have finally achieved a position of employment that I am quite satisfied with. My families needs are fulfilled, my wants are progressively being obtained, and at the end of the each day, I can honestly say that I have accomplished significant success.
My life has shown me that one thing is true. The gods truly favor the warriors.
On the whole I’ve been blessed with an excellent existence, and I intend to see it though.
So what is the point of all this?
The point is, its NEVER too late to live. Let not death infect you with fear. We will all face a new beginning, but when that day comes, vow to face it with pride, dignity, and no regrets. Live hard, Love long. Exist and enjoy. Embrace every moment.
