The time is now.

have been trying to write an entry for days but can't seem to.
last week a friend of ours died of a heart attack, aged only 45.
he left behind two children, friends of my son, aged only 7 and 11.

Things like that really make you re-evaluate your life and look at what is really important. Nobody ever looks back on their life and says "gee I wish I spent more time at the office". Money means nothing when you are dead.

So the only words I have today are these:

If there is something you have wanted to do, but have been putting it off for "the right time", that time is now. Take a risk, jump in headfirst. Because you never know what tomorrow holds.

  2. Thanks for the perspective. You're right - nobody remembers the late nights at the office, but they do remember the good times with family and friends.

    So sorry about your friend.

  3. :( That's awful. I live every day like tommorow might not happen. It's the only way to be. Take pleasure in the little things.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I have had two friends loose their spouses at a young age and it really does make you step back and re-evaluate your life.

  5. Yeah, we have a friend whom lost her partner (whom was only early 20's) to a massive asthma attack. They had a one year old daughter.

    It definitely made us re-evaluate a few things. We went out the next day and applied for life insurance.

    Thinking of you.
