Is That All?

Is that all? Absolutely not. We are just getting started. We have our whole lives ahead of us. You think you've seen the sun but baby, you ain't seen it shine. The future depends on what we do in the present. Life will keep giving you more thrills and chills. Each day is different from the last.

What happens when your life surpasses your dreams?

We see our worst day and somehow manage another worst day.

We each have our best day ever, and then we have another day that becomes our best day ever.


“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
 -John M. Richardson, Jr.

Take each day as a lesson, a new experience and an opportunity to teach. The capacity of our brains is limitless where we can absorb more and more information, continuously taking in new sounds and new sights and new experiences. May the dreams of your past be the reality of your future. Is that all? We're just getting started.

That's all for the writing challenge

  14. Hey Shawn! Having been in the "what happened" and "letting it happen" camps for many years, I became a firm believer in making things happen. So far, it's working out. Congratulations on completing the challenge; we all made it happen. Indigo
