I’m going to live my dash period of my life to the fullest.

I think I’m ready to get back to reality or life or whatever we call this thing that we do everyday.  I was totally knocked off balanced when I found out my brother passed away at the age of 50 years old.  He passed away on February 25 and I can’t believe it March 20 today.  I had a serious talk with myself and I decided that it’s time for me to live my dash period to the best of my ability.

I know you are thinking what is the dash period? It’s the time period from your birthday(dash)and the day you leave this earth.  The dash represents everything in that time period.  I was thinking I don’t want to waste my dash period on what ifs, I shoulds, I wish, I want.  I would like to instead be able to say I did, I went, I achieved, I’m proud, etc.

I’m going to fully commit to the goals I set for myself starting today.  Not tomorrow and if I fail at them today then I will start over and over again until I accomplish my goals.  I still haven’t completely gotten my funny back.  People used to tell me I could make anything funny.  Well I guess I got them, I couldn’t find a damn thing funny about death.  That ish is final!!!

Hello it's me. I am who I am, whoever that is? I'm on this journey of life and trying to enjoy it one day at a time. I hope you enjoy my blogs because I will enjoy them by myself if you don't! I love to laugh and love to share laughter.

  1. Yeah, I am too. Watching my mom die and having the challenge I am recovering from now, I’m filling my dash. Starting with a cruise. I’m also removing the I don’t do’s, I don’t like’s, and I don’t go’s. Within reason of course.


  2. Good Morning cousin. You are correct, we can only take one day at a time. And you will have good days & bad. We all love & appreciate that you are real. We all have been able to experience true emotions through your sharing. You are doing a great job with your dash or “-“. Since I am the little bit different cousin you know I knew what the dash meant. As you know I actually go to to cementary to leave flowers & reminice. And the one thing ALL the headstones have in common is the dash. For anyone who don’t understand or get it, the dash is YOUR life regardless of how long or brief. We humans are strange creatures, for some reason we place so much emphasis on just two days, our birth date and our going home date & then represent a person whole life with a dash. Thanks for reminding us to do something with our dash. You are already an inspiration to so many of us. We love you & your spirit. Ohhh & Janet. Keep working on that dash. Love you.
