As I sit snugly in Starbucks writing my post for tomorrow about boys, dating and fun, I can’t help but feel a mixture of extreme gratitude and injustice. I don’t have any updates on what is happening in Haiti and I don’t know anyone there. I do know, however, that life happens suddenly. You will never know exactly what your next 24 hours, or really your next breath, holds.
- Take the happiness that is given to you. When you have that moment, completely embrace it. Don’t question it. Whether or not the next second includes pain, your current one holds peace.
- Don’t forget to love unconditionally and without bounds. Love your dog, love your neighbors, love your parents, love your siblings. Regardless of what they’ve done to you or what they’ll do tomorrow, you owe it to yourself to love.
My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Haiti. You are loved.
