We recently found these soothing words to help navigate grief.

The writing reminds us that we never know how much time we have here on earth and to make the best of your precious time.

Every minute someone leaves this world.

“Every minute someone leaves this world behind.
Age has nothing to do with it.

We are all in “the line” without knowing it.
We never know how many people are before us.
We can not move to the back of the line.
We can not step out of the line.
We can not avoid the line.

So while we wait in line:
Make moments count.
Make priorities.
Make the time.
Make your gifts known.
Make a nobody feel like a somebody.

Make your voice heard.
Make the small things big.
Make someone smile.
Make the change.
Make love.
Make up.
Make peace.

Make sure to tell your people they are loved.
Make sure to have no regrets.
Make sure you are ready…”

“Every minute someone leaves this world.”
