Every time something good happens I write it down. Funny moments, silly things that are said, warm moments that are fleeting and easily forgotten. I don’t write them down just for myself. I write them down because on the date of my death, I want people to know, that they mattered to me. That I spent every moment appreciating my life and their impact on it.
I can sometimes be very awkward, it’s kinda a Capricorn trait, being awkward..Soo, I write down all the stuff I was thinking and feeling that others might not have realized were somewhat special and important to me.
The thing about death is, it’s just one day, unlike the many many days we live! Life passes and people really shouldn’t dwell on the endpoints…it’s the living moments, I think, that people want to be remembered for.
So, I’m anti-funeral, always have been. I think mourning is for lost chances..I want to live so everyone knows how I felt about them at every waking moment. They can miss me..but, mourning is for those who don’t plan to ever see each other again, and I sure as hell will! I plan to create soo many memories that it’s like I’m still here even after I pass away. The real me exists in my writing, in my poetry, in my words. That’s where I live.
It’s the little things you do, that makes your life lived.
