Y.O.L.O. (You Only Live Once)

Cast aside regret

Embrace failure

Let lessons learned

Become familiar

Cross paths

With the unexpected

Continue on

Til it’s perfected

Joy and laughter

Pain and strife

You must keep living

Your best blessed life

Test the boundaries

Go the distance

The range of possibilities

They’re endless

Your first time or last

You gotta find humor

No haunting past

Or daunting future

We all have stories

Let them be told

Cherished memories

As you grow old

Generations should learn

As they mature

Cast aside regret

Embrace failure

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
