Your Life Can Change In An Instant!

How is that one day life is great and the next it changes in an instant? I lost a friend today, Ken Huggins, granted I did not know him very well but through listening to his voice I know I had a connection with him. I know that it is not the amount of time that you know a person but it is the quality of time that you spend with a person. I did not have the chance to get to know Ken Huggins like I wanted to, but he impacted my life in more ways than one, I am sure of that.

People more often than not take for granted their everyday lives, I am no exception, but with Ken's guidance and spirit from beyond he will continue to help me. I have found an amazing group of people that I am proud to be apart of, Mentoring For Free. That is where I met Ken and up until this point I have not spoken up to let others hear my voice. I have been content to just listen and observe.

I have to get over my fears of rejection and believe that I am apart of this for a much bigger reason than I know at this time. I do know that it will revel itself in due time. Take today and think about this "It is later than you think," a good friend and mentor tells me that all the time, Art Jonak.

There is a saying that my mother tells me "Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery and Today is a Gift." Please live each day as a gift because you never know when there will not be another tomorrow. Take the time to listen to your heart and love the ones that are around you.

I Appreciate You,
Bridget Lee

You hit the nail on the head. Most of us live without the thought that there is NO TOMORROW. It is either yesterday or today. Tomorrow never gets here. Thank you for your kind words.

Let's be grateful for every single moment that God grants us. For the next moment may be our last.

I didn't have the chance to meet Ken Huggins but the sound of his voice over the phone always made me feel so secure, so grounded. He was a very valuable asset to our organization and to the world.

Thanks for such an inspiring post.
You hear it all the time "Live for Today, for tomorrow never comes.

Except most of us are in such a rush just to get thru today.

Thanks for the reminder!

Bridget,
You are so right about living life for today. Tell everyone how much you care because you might not ever get the chance again.

Thanks for sharing,

Hi Bridget
Many of us have been touched by Ken's presence. Just like you said without knowing him personally or even very well Ken did influence many peoples life. And yes the only future we can be certain of is that we are going to join with Ken and many others and that's the only thing we need to carefully plan for our transition. Take each breath like if it is the last one. That what Ken would have said.
Take care
