Life Isn’t Short, Our Lives Are

Live For Moments Not Years

Hello World,

The most well known saying is that life is short… In years that may be true… Yet even if you look at a year in days, hours or minutes it may seem long but it goes by quick.

We go through many stages in our lives and each one we try to rush through to get to the next, we rush to be a teenager, we rush to become an adult, to have a family and then to retire, only to ask ourselves where on earth did the time go or how did the years go by so fast… Then we wait to die…

Hmmmm what a thought… Life is a trip my friends and we never can predict what’s going to happen throughout our lives. We can’t predict the good or the bad and never know what may happen… Our lives change quickly and a lot of times things happen very unexpectedly. 

Yet life has been around for eons… It’s not life that’s short… It’s our lives that can be, especially when we look at it in years cause we truly don’t really know how many years we have to live. 

That may sound morbid yet it’s true. So maybe if we looked at moments rather than years we wouldn’t rush so fast… For it’s not the years that matter anyway… It’s the moments that count 😊

Live for the moments for the moments are what life is all about & moments make memories that last a lifetime and beyond β€πŸ™β€

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible, even after the loss of a child, which to me is the most devastating life event ever... I know for I have and am prevailing each and every day. It isn't easy and there are days where I feel I cannot go on yet always know that You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your loss, life is a beautiful illusion & death is the bitter inescapable truth of every mortal’s life, but that being said I strongly feel believe that in the realm of time a bond between a parent & his/her child is incorruptible. Death can’t take away those memories you shared with your son & your parents, through those memories they live & breathe within you. So never be sad missing them for they are always there engraved in your soul, sincerely hope that you smile as big as river Nile, do stay in touch πŸ™‚

      1. Yes I can understand the emotional anguish that you might be going, but hope in life you shed tears of joy rather than tears of despair. A weird coincidence is that I turned 24 just few days back, so if you ever miss your middle son you can always drop me a message. I certainly don’t want to replace his memory but just hope to be someone to whom you can relate to as your middle son so that the magnitude of your pain reduces to some extent πŸ™‚

      3. U know there is this saying that a person always values something that he/she is deprived of, there was a time when people turned their backs on me, that haunting experience made me realize the true value of standing by people who are in pain, when my heart was seared with sadness it made me realize the value of generating joy in the lives of people of themselves are sad. So I don’t want anyone to go through what I had been through in the past that’s why I intend to be a harbinger of happiness in the lives of people around me. Thanks for your kind words, you yourself are a very kind lady maybe we should collaborate on a poem together sometime😊

  2. When my dad was on his death bed & the doctors said me that he doesn’t much time on him … I said to myself it’s not about how long my dad’s life would be, what would matter is how big my dad’s life I would make for him by bringing him joy. So yes I truly agree with you that life is an unpredictable trip & at the same time in this journey we can live a lifetime in each moment depending on how big we make our lives. According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them. Thanks for sharing such a lovely post πŸ™‚

    1. I can totally relate to what you said. I lost my parents many years ago yet I lost my middle son last year and the only thing that has helped me other than my writing is knowing that I allowed him to follow his dreams and he lived a beautiful 24 yrs… All of which I was blessed and am blessed to be his mom… Today I live for moments and memories 😒❀ I will definitely read your blog my friend β€πŸ™ thank you for your wonderful comment too

    2. I totally agree with that. When my son passed away it really showed me who was real and who wasn’t and although at first I was very hurt by many I thought were friends, when I needed help to get a vehicle so I could honor my sons wishes not one person who I’ve helped immensely and who I thought were friends have helped me and at first I was angry and then realized that not everyone is like me and that’s ok. I’m still trying to save for a vehicle and I will get one its just going to take longer because of my limited disability income yet you know what… That’s ok 😊😊 I will not change who I am because of how others turned out to be or are… I’m a giver and love all… And if it’s in my power I will always be there for those that I am able to help and you my friend continue to be who you are too… I’ve never collaborated writing with someone yet I would be willing to 😊😊😊😊😊
