In a perfect world, people would never be taken from us, especially not before their time.  They wouldn't be taken in their prime, or their best years, or before they had their chance to reach their full potential.  None of those tragedies would ever happen.  But this is not a perfect world, and they do.

Nothing good usually comes from those times or instances, except for 2 things.  You should learn to value your life.  Your trivial bullshit means nothing.  You have been left the gift of living for some reason.  So choose to use it and find your reason.  Also, do not take things for granted.  Instead of constantly finding fault within the world or yourself or others, look to the positive things you find.  Spring-time new life, a rainbow, an amazing summer sun shower, beautiful fresh snow, a gigantic gorgeous plate of delicious food.  ANYTHING.  But you have to find something.

There is so much wrong within this world, and with those around us.  But all you do is waste your time and everyone else's when every word that comes out of your mouth is laced with negativity.  Rather than bitching and moaning, try to change something or make a difference starting with yourself.  When did it become so 'hip' or comforting to be in a constant state of negativity, or even worse, hatred?

Everyday people are lost who do not deserve it, or who are entirely 'too young' for it.  They are ripped from their enriched, amazing lives, and a hole is left in their presence.  Children, volunteers, young men, beautiful women, go-getters, people who maintain a positive outlook in the face of a terminal illness, etc.  But not you, not yet.  YOU haven't met your time yet, so make the best of it.  Do not be so self righteous that you cannot even choose to shut the fuck up and make it work.  If you don't have that sort of self worth to do it for yourself, do it for those around you, the ones who haven't given up on you, or do it for those who chose to live that better life, yet were still pulled from us too soon.

Nothing is ever too big to overcome.  Make a choice.  It was the best choice I ever made.

RIP christa, ciao bella.

  1. Well said, Nikki! I've heard pastors say that complaining robs people of their blessing and I agree with that.
