Life is too short.

Life is too short.

I remember hearing the old saying that, "life is too short," and never really taking those words into context. As time passes on you begin to loose key people in your life (parents, older relatives, siblings, friends, class mates etc...) and you begin to realize how it was just yesterday that these people were young, vibrant and enjoying life. A member of Ed's Place talked about the death of her father and how she always wondered if he had the opportunity to do the things in which he wanted to in life. "He was such a giver," she said, "always fulfilling the needs of others." As we continued to conversate she recalled going through his things with her mother after he had passed and how surprised she was of how very little he had in material things. "No real expensive jewelry or man toys, no excess in clothing and not much in his bank account," she sighed. "So many thought he was wealthy," she went on to tell me, "but in reality he was not at all, he had so little."

As I thought more about my conversation with this person I realized that she was wrong. He had more than most of us in life has because he was a giver and that was where he fufilled his needs. His joy and his satisfaction came not from what he had but from what he was able to give to others. What a beautiful human being he was and how much joy he must have received in life while helping all those in which he did. What struck me the most was that he did in life what he wanted to, rather his daughter understood or even I understood, he did what made him happy.

We at Ed's Place write to you today and say, don't worry about how you will be judged in the end when you are no longer living, make your life choices for yourself today while you live. A good life does not consist of how much you accumulate materialistically, it consist of how much you get out of it personally. What is a day to us is but oh but a moment to time Do what makes you feel good, happy, satisfied and fulfilled as long as it does not in any way hurt others. Go for it, grab it, give it away, if that is what you want to do. Don't just search for but find, joy, peace and enjoyment each day because when you really think of it life is too short...
