"Hole" Hearted

I almost feel like whenever I neglect this blog, I am making excuses. I wish it was just that, but unfortunately, that's not the case. The last few of months were hard. My beloved dog, who was more like a sibling than just a pet, and more recently, my grandfather passed away. I've lost so many dear people in the past, you would think it would be something I would be used to. I don't think death is something someone can get used to. You may cope better, but it doesn't get easier with "experience." It gets harder. The hole gets bigger... the pain, and the regrets just pile up.

For some reason, regret and loss seem to go hand in hand. "I wish... I should have... If only..." We should never take things for granted. This is something that we hear over and over again, but for most of the time, it doesn't really hit us until we've experienced loss, whether it's through death, or a break up of any type of relationship. So I'm here to remind you once more, to live your life to the fullest, not to take things for granted, and never put off telling people how much they mean to you, and how much you love them, even if you know the feelings may not be returned back.

It's easy to shut the world out once you've experienced some type of loss, but I honestly believe, that when you experience loss, is when you should open up your heart even more. Be open, be loving, give all you can give. Most of the time, you will not regret giving too much. It's when you don't, and know that you didn't, that will haunt you.

Loss is inevitable... That's life. We don't need the added pain of regret to add to the pain of loss. And with that, I will end this post.
