Love Your Life

IMG_9153.JPG

Since my grandma passed, this - or a variation of this without all the fucks and shits - is something my mom has said to me often.  My grandma had a big life.  When she passed she was surrounded by a house full of kids, grand kids, great grandkids.   But at the end of the day, when life is over, it’s over. 

You know what I like about this quote. It doesn’t say be happy.  Not that there is anything wrong with being happy. Happiness is great.  But we can’t all be happy all the time! It’s not realistic!! But we can love our life. Every damaged, big, fun, crazy, extravagant, tiny, chaotic, simple, corner of it
