Rage, rage against the dying of the light

We mark days in our lives for a variety of reasons, most good – things like birthdays, or anniversaries, or maybe just a really good hair day – but sometimes in remembrance of something that makes us sad, something we remember for not so happy reasons,  they get marked as well.

For me, today is such a day, a birthday of someone who has passed.  We don’t get a say in when someone’s time comes, and it seems it always comes too soon.  Thinking about anyone whose life was cut short can make you sad, resentful, or sometimes even angry.  The “what-ifs” the “if onlys“, they can drive you mad if you let them.

So take that energy and channel it elsewhere, into making your life or the lives of those around you that much richer.  Live for those that no longer do and change those negative marks on your calendar into a celebration in remembrance.  Don’t let yourself slip into that funk or depression, fight it, and remember any life, no matter how short, is worth remembering and sharing with those around you.  For in your memories and stories they live on.

RIP bro,
