Today my Mom's best friend was laid to rest. It was sad as I'm realizing my parents generation is slowly leaving us.
I could say a lot about value life and how short it is because it's all true.
However that's not what struck me today. As I listened to all the beautiful memories and accomplishments I of course was moved but what brought me to tears was the video montage presentation.
Truly a picture is worth a thousand words, so watching her life story told in pictures gave an insight into her life and personality that words didn't quite portray.
So I guess my realization is that it's really important to document your memories not just for yourself but for future generations.

What Love Looks Like
I sometimes dislike writing these types of posts because it causes you to look at your own situations more closely and objectively. Good and bad. Good because it causes you to grow, bad because it can be painful. Growth normally is painful.
What I'm saying doesn't just hold true for intimate relationships it is very true about all relationships.
Were you ever perusing IG and stumble across posts from friends, family or significant others and realize at that moment that there is no room in their life for you?
Their choices aren't choices you would make. Their exclusion of you from events or parts of their life aren't exclusions you'd ever make. Their inclusions aren't inclusions you'd make.
When it comes to family you can't just walk away and ignore it, you have to communicate.
However, if this occurs early on in a budding friendship or relationship it is best to walk away because the chances of that person having the ability to add you to their life in a balanced fashion more than likely won't occur. It is especially less likely with men who haven't been in a truly committed relationship once they've entered their 40's they're too set in their ways and it only gets worse as they get older. Women tend to be more accommodating.
Walking away from someone you've formed an attachment or bond to is painful however it's more painful to be with someone and forever feel lonely, alienated, ignored or worse.
It's nice to be loved, cherished and valued by others however it's more important you love, cherish and value yourself!
This statement is totally true. I can fully stand by it after a year of trial and error.
I eat good food however my nutrition success sucks.
I am totally a breakfast skipper. Not because I intentionally plan to do this, I don't, however since I'm an under-eater the thought of food at that hour of the morning rarely crosses my mind.
I still absolutely stand by how I've benefitted from Keto, it's been great, however I still have struggled with under-eating, and effectively cutting body fat.
Since the arrival of the puppy in early February my workouts have been hardly worth calling a workout. Now that he's a little older and my son is back to care for him, getting back on track has been hard.
I was praying and had reached out to some great personal trainers however I still wasn't able to make a decision, I just had no peace. I knew I needed help.
Long story short, our gym just brought on board several new additions including a master trainer, personal trainers, massage therapist, hormone specialist and nutritionist.
Just one conversation and the trajectory of my health and fitness lifestyle has completely changed.
Firstly all foods that need to be purchased organically are, I'm on a meal regime that has me slated for five meals a day, however if I manage three that's a good start since that's something I rarely do.
I'm not eating Keto however I am eating in a way which should bring down my inflammation and give my body the energy it needs to actually workout when we get to that point. Right now it's all about fueling my body properly.
So my son just shared this post with me @brittainjoy as well as the responses, I’m flabbergasted and not in a good way! I’m not really a Jaden Smith fan however he’s never been more on point with his assessments of the public school system and prison. There is a vast difference between learning and being told what is acceptable for you to know so that you can fall in line, be dumbed down, manipulated, and turned into what government and the powers that be($$$) think you should be. I’m all for education. I’m all for seeing those who commit crimes incarcerated.
However the dumbing down of our youth, via traditional schooling, social media and the great offender television media is unacceptable. I applaud Jaden @c.syresmith for recognizing and speaking out about this blatant travesty. Traditional schooling doesn’t prepare our children for real life, dealing with real issues or contributing to society with their gifts and passions! It turns them into unhappy adults stuck making others wealthy helping them pursue their passions. For those with low self awareness the fare even worse and end up behind the safety of prison bars because they were never taught or allowed to think for themselves.
