December 3- Do Life Big

I know that might seem like a strange title but it is appropriate for what I planned on posting and then, even more appropriate after something major happened in my town on Tuesday.

I was driving home and this song came on my playlist which fit right in with my planned post.



Then I got home and read this article and life became a whole lot more meaningful- this post became a whole lot more heart wrenching, and in reality- has helped me put things in perspective more than ever.


So- here goes:

6 months- 6 months from today is a big day in my life- the big 4-0.  They say age is just a number, and yet, there's a lot that has taken place in that span of time- love, heartache, loss, change, and most important- life.  As I approach this milestone I have to ask myself if I am really living or am I simply existing?  Most days I feel like I am just going through the motions.  I have a choice- in June- when I look back on the last 6 months- these upcoming 6 months- am I going to be able to say, "I really lived!" or am I going to plod through life, just existing?


Life has a way of not turning out like planned- and you know what?  That's okay!  God's plans are bigger and His ways are higher than mine.  He has a beautiful future ahead for me- whether that's one day, one year, or another 60 years.  Regardless I want to live my life big:

Oh, I wanna love, wanna give every day I live,
I wanna do life big,
I wanna love, serve, and give every chance I get,
I wanna do life big,
Oh, I wanna love, wanna give every day I live,
I wanna do life big,
I wanna love, serve, and give every chance I get,
Oh I wanna do life big,
