An Authentic Life

It’s been hard emotionally these past few days. I try to keep these thoughts in a distance as my focus needs to stay centered on simply living life. Yet, they are always in existence…an imprint that will forever mark my soul. These memories and longings always manage to push their way to the surface and when that bolted door finally splinters open, all those tears come flowing in a steady rushing river.
It was not my intention to launch my first posted blog in this manner. No matter…as life seldom plays itself out as we intend it to. We hold these self-made grand illusions to fool ourselves into thinking we know how life will be played out. Yet life never seems to follow the same script we hold in our own minds. Then there always comes a time and place when we reach the end of a script. We don’t exactly make grandiose plans about that part, do we? I am by no means saying that we should primarily focus our thoughts toward our end script. Just be a little mindful of it so that you live life to its fullest capacity.
Live authentically.
My youngest brother has always been a true testament to this statement…his laughs, smiles, friendship, compassion, dynamic personality and great sense of humor echo through time immortal. He lived his life by always doing what he loved and celebrating life with his loved ones. His light still shines here and I celebrate his uniqueness and all that he brought into this world.
Happy birthday little bro on your special day ~July 11~
I love you and miss you.
