Love the Life you Live

I have spent two Labor Day Weekends in California and the Tuesday following both holiday weekends, I have received the news of young, healthy people losing their lives.

Last year, a woman – a dancer – a group exercise instructor at the gym I was the fitness manager of drowned in Lake Sonoma. I remember hearing the news the Tuesday morning after Labor Day and being in shock. How could SHE have drowned??  She danced and worked out her entire life – taught zumba and yoga classes. She was STRONG - 47 years old, petite and rippling muscles on the outside, warm and exuberant on the inside. She was swimming with her boyfriend and dog and apparently just couldn’t get back up above water. She died 3 days later at the hospital. The entire town of Petaluma (where she lived and taught classes) was in shock. Still, no one knows why she was unable to resurface.

Yesterday I received news that an ex-colleague of my boyfriend died at a festival over Labor Day Weekend. 33 years old, took zumba classes, ate a vegetarian diet, road her bicycle to and from places and suffered a brain aneurysm. At 33?!

A friend of ours in San Francisco also received news of her boss, mentor and friend dying unexpectedly over the weekend at the age of 37.

The reason for this blog is to remind everyone to live your life to the fullest!  Tell your friends and family that you love them! Appreciate and respect every single day of your life and those around you.

“Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet. Cherish them…”
