  1. You’re just in the early days of your life but already informed by insights into the brevity of our days that elude so many of your elders. Thank you for sharing these valuable thoughts in your essay. Heck yes! “[L]ive life while you can. Make the most of every opportunity. Say yes to new things… go ahead and make those plans”. I’ll be quoting you!

    Your piece reminded of an aphorism that carried immense meaning for me in my mother’s final years, her nursing home’s beautiful motto: “Each moment matters!” That is the sweetness we cherish at the end.

    May you enjoy bountiful opportunities, live it up and plan big.

    1. This is such high praise… I am so flattered. Thank you!

      The fact that you were able to see parts of your own story in my words is just the best news— it’s pretty much the only thing us writers aim for! I appreciate you taking the time to read and write back :)

      Stay well, Missy!
