Well the bags are packed and set by the door... I just have to set my alarm for the ungodly hour of 5:45 to head to the airport and then its off to Mexico! After the day ended I'm feeling a lot more excited for the trip. I wish DH could go, but I'm also really thrilled to spend time with coworkers and make a deeper bond with some of them.
Today's writing prompt is to blog on a piece of advice that I have for others. I've been thinking about it all day and have been a little unsure of which direction I wanted to take this post, but I've decided to just let it go.
My advice to you? Don't wait. Tell people how much you appreciate them while you can. If you feel like giving someone a call or a hey how are you text or email, do it. Laugh often and if you're thinking about springing for that mocha because you need a little pick me up... go for it. I say this within reason (as I give that goyard bag the side eye) and I don't let a day go by that I don't tell my DH that I love him.
I unfortunately missed the opportunity to tell someone very near to me how much they meant to me before they passed and it has - and I'm afraid will - always stay with me. I know he understood that I love and appreciate him and all the things he did for me, but I'm not quite sure he knew to the extent at which I do.
So, walk the sunny side of the street. Smile at a stranger. Indulge in dessert. Talk. Laugh. Be you. And don't wait.
