There's A Last Time For Everything, Live Like It

There's A Last Time For Everything, Live Like It

Don't take anything for granted, and live everyday like it's your last
"Wearin' a tux in a high school gym, and she's wearin' your class ring. There's a last time for everything." — Brad Paisley

Most of us don't think about that. We don't consider the fact that we may never get a "do-over." You have a last time for everything, and that's why you should enjoy every moment, every activity, and every chance you have to do something fun. Find the silver lining in everything you do, every day... because there's a last time for everything.

There will be a last time you play basketball with the kids you've known for 12 years in your high school gym.

There will be a last time you're in the same room with everyone in your graduating class.

There will be a last day at that job you love, a last family vacation before you and all your siblings grow up, and a last time you get to see your favorite artist in concert.

You only have one chance to live through some of these things, and the best advice I can give to you is don't blink.

Don't rush life, it goes quick enough when you're begging it to slow down.

Don't forget to say I love you before you hang up the phone.

Don't forget to visit your grandpa.

Don't forget to call your sister on her birthday.

Forgive and learn from everything you do, because there's a last time for everything.

"Last call, last chance, last song, last chance. Sometimes you just don't know when that's gonna be."

There will be a last day you get to spend with someone you love, a last time you sleep in your college dorm, and a last time you go on spring break with all your friends.

There are some things you can't do again, so do yourself a favor and live in the moment.

One day you're walking into high school for the first time as a freshman, and the next thing you know you're walking out for the last time as a student. Then you blink and you have a baby on the way with a house and bills.

Every once in a while you have to stop, look around, and take it all in. Take pictures, write a diary, and remember it for what it is.

Don't let any single person ruin your last time for anything and whatever you do, don't take life for granted.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

For The Grandparents You Lost Before You Were Ready, Because You Never Can Be

We weren't ready and there is so much I wish I could tell you.


You were taken far too soon. It's not fair, I didn't have you for long enough. Why do the bad things happen to the good people?

It's been nine years and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. When you left, I had to be strong for mom because she had to take care of everything. But when it was all said and done, I was curled up in the closet crying.

It's been nine years and you've missed so much. You didn't get to see me baptized, start cheerleading, graduate high school, get my first job, or have my first real boyfriend. It hurts to know you won't see me graduate college, get married, or have kids. But, I know you are watching over from Heaven. I can always feel your presence.

It scares me because Kylie was only 6 when you left us. I worry about what she remembers. I'm scared because I can barely remember your voices. But I am thankful because I remember grandpa's love for hats, grandma's love for scrabble, and a shared love of card games. I remember big Christmases, the mess of making chicken and dumplings, running down the hall away from the tickle monster, and most of all, I remember the love you showed me. Your love was overwhelming, safe, and unfaltering.

To you Grandpa and Grandma, Ray and Joy, I miss you, I love you, I hope I do you proud. I will show the love you gave me to as many people as I can. Your memory will live on through the stories we tell and you will never be forgotten.

I'll give mom a hug and kiss for you. I know you'd give us all one. Keep watching over, OK? I love you.
