Are we forgetting to live?

Heyy heyy fam! I’m so excited that today is Friday! We made it! This week has been great, I got some new opportunities that I can’t wait to tell you about, hubby is still in therapy and married life is now in its 4th month. I’m still getting used to the fact that I have a husband. It’s deep!

This morning, I was thinking…Are we forgetting to live? So many of us well all of us have things we must do, and hey that’s fine. But, are we living or existing? I help take care of my husband who is partially paralyzed and I wear many hats. I know that everything I do, that I’m made for it. But am I forgetting to live?

Life is a beautiful thing, but we can’t let things take the place of what is important. My mom who always valued a great education and wanted a better life for herself and I. But, she was always there when I had a concert, or event. She made me priority. Right now I don’t have children, but I’m learning to take time out and enjoy life.

I’ve loved but I have also lost people that were close to me. There is nothing wrong with wanting to have the best, but there is something wrong with sacrificing people that love you for it. Life is but a dream…

Take time and truly enjoy life…laugh with family, don’t let the things you want take the place of what will always have your back. Live!

    I have been thinking the same thing lately. I am not living only existing. It’s time for a change.
