Friday Inspiration: Quotes I Love

Earlier this week, I sadly lost one of my coworkers who was only 22 years old. He will be greatly missed around my small office, and I have been lost in thought the past few days thinking about what happened. Although I don't and will never understand death, especially when it comes to someone so young, this has reminded me how fragile but important life is and how we should all cherish each moment that we're alive. Don't wait until "someday" comes to take that trip you've been wishing for forever - plan it now. Spend as much time with the people you love as you can. Love as much and as deeply as you are able to, even when it hurts so badly you don't think you'll ever move on, because you will. Treat yourself and those around you well and notice all of the little things that make life beautiful each and every day. This is all I can do to move forward after tragedy, and I hope you'll all take a minute to read this and do the same. Have a great weekend and I'll be back on Monday!
