Life to the Fullest

This week's quote of the week is by Grant Hancock (as usual, I have no clue who that is. But I really like the quote:

So far I've learnt that every day of your life must be lived to the fullest. Life is about smiling, laughing, and crying. Life is about making the most of what you have and what you're given. It's about keeping relationships and losing them. Life is about falling in love and losing someone you do love. Life was given to us as a challenge, and it's not easy, but you have to try and meet that challenge and make the most of it while you can because you don't actually know when it will be your turn to lay down to rest. You only have one shot at life, so make sure you take it with both hands and squeeze every little drop out of it you can.
So I've been thinking a lot lately about my mom. It's been almost a year since she died, and I wonder sometimes what she thinks. If she knows that even though I'm screwing up I'm trying as hard as I can.

It's just weird, ya know? I never really thought this would be me: my life, the girl without her mom. I guess in some ways I just still have a hard time believing she's really gone.

My life looks very different from the one I thought I'd be living right now. Weird.

Happy Tuesday!
