Give me everything tonight
For all we know we might not get tomorrow
Let's do it tonight
– Pitbull “Give Me Everything”
Today people ask me how I am doing and how I manage to deal with my situation. Life is hard, there is no denying that but having lived a life with no regrets makes it a lot easier to deal with where I am right now. Ok, I do have a few regrets - like I regret, even though it was the right thing to do, in my sophomore year of college telling Brad Pitt that I had a boyfriend when he asked for my number after escorting me home after a Sigma Chi party. Another regret - someone told me about a great stock to invest in several years ago, something called “Google” – that was a bad one to say no to. Overall though, the opportunities and adventures I have missed have been minimal because I like to say “yes”.
The adventures in my life today look a little different than I had imagined. I thought I would be traveling the world in these next few years visiting the pyramids, journeying to Israel with a Bible scholar walking where Jesus walked and spending lots of time in the Caribbean sunshine. Instead, I am called to walk beside my husband basking in the light of his smile. Each day provides adventures as we figure out how to conquer the new challenges before us. I can enjoy this phase of my life because I am not waiting for "someday".
If you are reading this and are someone who is putting things off for “someday” I hope that you will reconsider. Live life to the fullest today and every day because, like the song says, "You might not have tomorrow."
