Hey Beautiful Dreamers,
I am going to be showing my age, but do you all recall the song “I Just Called to Say I Love You” by Stevie Wonder? That song is replaying in my head over and over as it goes right along with the topic I’m going to be talking about today.
A few days ago we lost a comedy legend Bob Saget. I was on break at work and when I scrolled through social media I saw that he had passed away. I was in complete shock and disbelief. Yes, I know I never knew the man personally, but hearing about his death really saddened me. Full House was one of my favorite shows as a kid. I loved the show so much that when I was in elementary school I would wake up at 4 a.m. before school started to watch Full House when the episodes came on at Nick at Night.
Like many people around the world I fell in love with the characters in Full House. I loved how they were an untypical kind of family; however, it somehow worked really well. The characters were all relatable in some way and the lessons they went through made you feel like you really bonded with them. Like in a way you were part of the family.
I remembered that feeling when I heard the news of Bob’s passing. Even though I did not know him his character in that show had such an influence on me as I’m sure it did for many people. As I was scrolling social media I read what all his close friends were saying about him. One thing that stuck with me the most is that all these people in some way, shape, or form all said along the same things such as he always told people that he loved them constantly and that he had a way of making everyone feel special.
This whole circumstance really made me ponder about how life is so freaking short and that we never know when our time is up. All we can do is to make the most out of the time that we have. I kept thinking about how even though his life ended shorter than we expected that he spent most of it making other people feel awesome. This really hit me hard as I turned 27 yesterday and I just keep thinking about how fast my life has gone already, and that with the rest of my time here I want to do what Bob did and make sure others know they are loved and how truly special they are.
Hopefully I do not die anytime soon (haha), but when that time eventually comes around I hope my life leaves others feeling like they were so special to me and that I somehow made a difference in their life. I want to spend the rest of my life telling others how much I love them and how much they mean to me. I want to live my life as fully as possible, and I want to inspire others to do the same.
Back to tie this all to the beginning of this post. When was the last time you just called someone to tell them you loved them dreamers? When was the last time you hugged someone? How have you made others in your life feel special? These are the questions I’ve been really asking myself here lately, and the truth be told I need to be doing better about it myself. I can do better, and from now on I am going to do better to do all those things.
So what are you waiting for dreamers? Go call/ message/ mail/ or go see someone and let them know that you love them.
Thanks for your time dreamers,
