TRUE LOVE TUESDAY: LIVING WITHOUT REGRET AND THE LOVE LIST 70-72

I am a huge fan of Alicia Keys new song "Like You'll Never See Me Again"
This song speaks to how I am feeling these days. I am feeling like I do NOT want to live with regret. I don't want to miss out on opportunities for love, for fun, for friendships. I want my days to be lived as if it could be my last one. I know, what the fuck does that mean? And can anybody live with that much passion all the time! Yes, but passion doesn't mean running full speed all day. It means paying attention to your life all the time! It means even in the quiet moments you are present in your life.

I want to be fully present in my life. I don't want to miss a thing and I certainly don't want to regret anything. I don't want to wake up tomorrow and know that I missed saying I love you to someone dear to me. I don't want to leave this earth and my loved ones are thinking that I loved them. I need them to KNOW that I love them. I need them to KNOW that I love them everyday. So I am more present in my life right now and I am learning to live without regrets.

The Love List 70-72
  • 70. Treat Our Dreams like they are GOLDEN.
  • 71. Protects Me From The World. Even when I don't even know I need protecting!
  • 72. We are forgiving to each other and with each other.

Hey Love!

You better say number 71 again. LOL! How comforting to know that there is that someone special that has your back, even when you are not aware of it.

Be blessed!

Dearest Princess,

great post. i feel like i spend so much time just getting from day to day, that i don't really enjoy life as is. there are so many things i want to do & see, i just hope i'm able to do them (then enjoy them fully!). thanks for reminding me to stay focused.

Dearest TPW,
Yes I was finding myself doing the same thing. And the days starting running into each other and I stopped noticing what day it was. This was a problem becuae I was just sleep walking through my life. So I now make the very conscious decision to pay attention and be in the moment!
