Earlier this week I received the news that a friend from my youth had passed away. His passing was unexpected and shocked those who knew him. On one hand I’ve found it difficult to put into words my feelings emotions since receiving the news, yet on the other memories of the fun times have flooded my thoughts with tears and smiles coming at the same time.
We’ve all heard at least one cliché regarding life and the need to “live in the moment” or “live like tomorrow will never come”, and yet we don’t. The reality is we get one crack at our life so if there’s something you want to do, Do It Now!
OK, some activities may take some planning and saving and in that case start planning and saving now! Make what you want to do a priority and if you’re lucky you’ll get to do it.
Here’s the challenging part… Figuring out what you want to do.
The only advice I can offer is to go with your gut and then let your brain figure out how to make it happen.
Erik, you will be missed. R.I.P. my friend.
