Live Every Day to the Fullest

photo-891 “Life is lived in the living. Set aside convention, caution, and arbitrary “rules” about how life is supposed to be lived. Choose! Explore! Adventure! Live life to the fullest.” ~Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Over the last few weeks, I have been made very aware of just how short our journey here on earth is and how important it is to LIVE every day to the fullest.

My daughter’s father transitioned from his life on earth into his new life last month at the age of 53. His passing was a complete shock for everyone. Those of us left here have found a great comfort in knowing that his final day was spent doing what he loved, fishing in his boat at the coast, and falling asleep that evening at his cabin. His transition took place in his sleep and now we celebrate his new birthday.

I’ve spent the last several weeks with my daughter and that’s why I haven’t been active on my blog. I too am 53 years old and this has really brought to my attention on an even deeper level the importance of living life every day embracing the gift of life. My daughter’s  father did live his life to the fullest and he did embrace every day.

I encourage you to do the same and let go of the small stuff because in the end it doesn’t matter. Make your mark while you are here on earth: Choose! Explore! Adventure! Live your life to the fullest.

With much love,

Alice

About I am Alice

If anyone would have asked me three years ago if I had ever considered writing books, I would have promptly answered, "No." Today, it is a very natural feeling to write. I suppose since I enjoy talking so much, and I mean a lot, it should not have surprised me! I love communicating through writing as I feel completely united with my soul and my thoughts flow, often times as well as tears as I am altogether emerged in that feeling, in that moment. Check out the "About Alice" page to find out why I titled this site, "I am Alice" and why, "It Feels Good To Be ME."

  1. It is, as you rightly say, so important to seize every moment of every day. Although we didn’t have children, my ex-husband died at the beginning of September. It was expected but I was struck in a way I didn’t anticipate. I am so sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you and your daughter.

    I too am sorry for your loss, and I do understand being struck in a way your didn’t anticipate when your ex-husband died. I’ve have the same experience through all of this. Thank you so much for reaching out and sharing with me. I truly appreciate that so much. My daughter is very special and I am thankful for her and to call her my friend… She is one loved young woman by both of her parents. She takes great comfort in knowing that every day she and her father told each other, “I love you”. Alice
