Today I choose to focus on news! So much goes on around us and true enough sometimes we are oblivious, or unaware! Do you know how much has happened in the world that you may not have heard of yet? It’s a lot and I am using this opportunity to share some of it! Click on the links as you come upon them. Each link will lead you to something that has happened very recently in the world and interestingly enough all of these stories have taken place in the past 48 hours.

Take note of the photographs, the video footage and all the information that is shared. Here we go:

Celebrating Life-Part 2

On October 21, 2014 my post was entitled Celebrating Life and today I revisit it with Part 2. I honestly felt I need to and I must say that I echo everything that was said then in this post you can read at  Though some may think that based on this post the focus is on death, here I take the humble opportunity to celebrate life once again, and to show you otherwise. We must celebrate our lives and the lives of those we know as well as all other lives that surrounds us, be us human, plant or animal. In the face of death we should remember that though some can say they know, for the majority of us we do not know when or how our journey here will end and far too often we forget to be thankful for this life we have and what we have accomplished.

Added to this the links I have shared show that things can change so drastically and so many people are denied an opportunity to say goodbye. Far too often people choose to be caught up in gossip, talking ill or others, belittling others, jealousy and all the other things we should not be doing. What good does this serve? What merit is there in such acts? Day after day lives are taken deliberately or lost accidentally quite and often they include the babies among us.

Today I again ask that you celebrate your life and celebrate you. Celebrate the lives of the people around you! Please do not wait for a birthday or anniversary or a funeral to celebrate then what should be celebrated today! What if tomorrow never comes? Celebrate every smile, every kind word, every lesson, every experience, every good gesture you have given as well as those which you have received. As I write this Nickelback’s “If Today was your last day!” echoes in my head.

Say  a kind word! Do a good deed! Turn as my frowns upside down!

  1. Don’t wait for tomorrow to do what you can today.
  2. Don’t live with regrets.
  3. Don’t give up.
  4. Don’t waste your time on unimportant things.
  5. Don’t waste your time on unimportant people.
  6. Don’t change who you are for anyone unless you are changing for the better.
  7. Always be true to yourself.
  8. Always see things for what they are!
  9. Remember very few people change and the other’s get worse over time.
  10.  Remember we are all God’s children regardless of how our journey ends.
  11. See every day as a blessing and as a gift from God- the present is a present!

Pray! Keep your faith! Keep your courage! Take it bit by bit and step by step! Celebrate your life and the lives of those you know and love!

Thank you for reading! Thank you for letting me Celebrate Life- Part 2 with you- my life, your life, the lives of our friends and loved ones, the lives of those we know and those our paths will cross, babies or adults, who we will impact on and who will impact on us!
