As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down, probably will. We will have our hearts broken, probably more than once, and it's harder every time. We'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. We'll fight with our best friends. We'll blame a new love for things an old one did. We'll cry because time is passing too fast, and we'll eventually lose someone we love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt; because every sixty seconds you spend upset, is a minute of happiness you'll never get back. Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
I don't know why this is hitting me today, but just for me, go hug someone you love. Tell them, "I love you." Even better, make it someone that you haven't told in a while, or will be surprised by the revelation. Live! It's a precious gift.
