… just because [butterflies’] lives were short didn’t mean they were tragic… See, they have a beautiful life. Lisa Genova, Still Alice

A lot of times I have always been one to shy away from circumstances that may make me happy because longevity is not guaranteed. But as I grow older I realize I regret not taking those chances that can bring me that momentarily happiness. Longevity is never guaranteed, today can actually be my last day here. Do I want to spend the time I have regretting, hurting or doubting myself? Even flowers die as the seasons change but they grow again in the spring, nothing lasts forever but knowing that a flower garden existed here is better than to never have a garden at all.
