Jan. 12 – Don’t let life catch you unprepared.

“Now, take what’s left [of your life] and live it properly. What doesn’t transmit light creates its own darkness.”Marcus Aurelius 

We lost a friend tonight unexpectedly. It’s never easy to lose someone, and it’s hard to accept and understand that loss when it comes so suddenly. We weren’t prepared today. Don’t let life catch you likewise unprepared.

Make sure you take the time to call and see your loved ones as often as possible. Thank them for their presence in your life. Appreciate them. Don’t let anything keep you from sharing our time on this earth companionship with our families and friends. Remember, politics, religion, opinions and beliefs don’t matter in the end. They are only a distraction.

If it separates you from others, abandon your position, or if you must, hold it silently. Companionship is more important than opinion—don’t forget that. If you believe in an afterlife, you will have an eternity to know you were right, but only this one life to share with the people and world around you. Don’t be a fool and waste it.
