♫ Could you say goodbye to yesterday?

If today was your last day, looking back, could you leave tomorrow and never look back? Never have regrets? No stones unturned, no words unsaid?

I know with all this new-ish music coming out reminding us that time is short, that more and more people are living today like it’s their last. I worry though, that we are living today like it is our last one, knowing life is too short, but living it for ourselves rather than everybody else. Don’t get me wrong, do go skydiving, bull riding, mountain climbing, never say never, all of that…but at the same time, I think we need to look around us too. It’s not so much where we’ve been, as who we’ve loved.

I look around, and it’s heart wrenching to see broken relationships. I hate seeing families torn apart, friendships burning bridges, relationships ending, hard words being thrown, and judgments being cast.

I am far from innocent. This year has been one rollercoaster of a ride, and I will be the first to admit that I’ve said some things I shouldn’t, especially toward some people that mean the most to me. There are broken relationships and words going unsaid for fear of making things worse.

There are people in my life that I have a hard time telling them how much I care, for fear of being hurt or admitting that I care. But what if today was it? Have you said everything you need to say?

We are so fearful of honesty. It’s hard to swallow when it’s coming at you, whether sweet or painful, and it sometimes can be harder to say.

I’m making it a goal to get everything out there. To keep myself out of awkward positions by swearing to few secrets, and full honesty. I want the people that I love, to know that I love them, regardless of what they’ve done or said in return.

Live like I am dying? Psh. Screw skydiving, I am jumping out in to life with my heart wide open, falling in love as often as possible, and risking everything to make sure I feel life to its fullest. Give it a shot.

Yours Truly,

Oh PS. Listen to this video...it's what we'll call: Blog Inspiring. Nickelback: Never Gonna Be Alone

Very touching blog Nomz...

You've said everything that I've been thinking for months, maybe years now...living life to the fullest, falling in love as often as we want, with who we want...that 'who' that touches us and cares for us so very deeply. I don't want to wake up tomorrow and regret not moving forward to happiness like you have...
