pretty heavy duty questions there PD :)
unfortunately, personal losses...that just sucks when i think about it.
lessons? - live in the moment, really notice what's around you, see it, hear it, feel it, taste it..
and let all the small stuff go and fly on by you..it's not worth thinking about...it's really trivial....
'life is a blink of the eye'
live life to the fullest and i mean that...don't hesitate, don't second guess...there are many chapters to fulfill...change is good...
hmmm...i could go on and on :)...but, how to explain it to someone younger, i'm not sure how to clearly articulate what's in my heart and soul
