Live Your Life

The Whine-Wine Blog

Because every rant, rave or whine goes down better with a great glass of wine!!

Lately, I’ve been looking back on some of the choices I’ve made in my life. I’ve always been the person that was careful and practical. I was forever trying to get it right on the first try. Now, of course, you know that never works, being perfect, I mean. I’ve held back and waited to take trips until I had all of the money or whatever constraint that was in my way was lifted.

Stop and think about that. Do you see yourself waiting for the perfect moment to complete something? You call it being practical. You call it being responsible, but are you letting the best years of your life slip away?

Now think of all the past deaths of celebrities this new year, most recently Luke Perry of 90210. He was only 52. He had a lot of life left to live. Let that sink in. Are you letting your life pass you by? Do you have a bucket list with nothing crossed off? I know I do, but that’s about to change. I have so much I want to do. I’ve recreated my bucket list, and I am taking steps to complete each and everything on it! First on my list is seeing Paris. I’ve wanted to go since I was 14 years old! I will finally get that chance this summer. Oh, the wine I’m going to drink!

People we see example after example of how life catches someone by surprise and their life is cut short. We have nursing homes full of people who have regrets. We hear every day from our elderly loved ones how they wished they could have or should have done one thing or another. Don’t let that be you. Take a chance on yourself. Be daring. Live out loud. Live your life and live it on your own terms!
