“Write something amazing this weekend. If not, do something amazing. Life is short. Live your story.” ~Larry Brooks
My weekend has already begun with a whirlwind. Today has been a day filled with many experiences that run the gamut from fun to uncomfortable to exciting to grief (my own and others) to inspiring to reassuring. I’ve been running nonstop from the time I got up this morning, and I’ve just arrived home for the night a little before midnight.
I’ve had the chance to witness much in me and in others that has yanked at my emotions and made me really think deeply about motivations, relationships, and self-awareness (or lack thereof).
This is an unusually full day for me, and I am exhausted both physically and emotionally. And yet, this whole range of experiences has worked together to remind me of parts of who I am that I have doubted at times lately. It reminds me that I am indeed alive and that life is short.
I don’t know that I will have the chance to write anything amazing this weekend, but I am already living an amazing life this weekend filled with things that stretch me.
What more can I ask for?
I already have so much for which to be grateful. Life is good.
