The Importance Of Doing Things Now !

Aileen brazeau community of San Clemente, the importance of family, live life nowToday I want to address a special topic. I am calling it the importance of doing things now. I feel like is time to have a conversation about how it’s never too late to start reconnecting with people in our lives and sharing laughter with them. 

I am surrounded by people who are well into their 70’s and 80’s at my assisted Living Facility, the San Clemente Villas.  Often I overhear conversations where people are sharing joyful experiences from their lives with each other. Just as often I have heard people say, with some wistfulness, they wish they had done more of those types of things. I see every day how short life really is and I am so appreciative of everything I have. I also have begun to cherish time spent with family.

Holidays, birthday parties, or just putting together a gathering. The occasion is secondary, the food should be good, but it’s the company that matters. I work hard, but I also enjoy seeing my friends and family gathered around and having a good time. It may look silly to some, but to me, these gathering are where we reaffirm our connections to each other. Where we get a stronger sense of family.san clemente , aileen brazeau, aileen brazeau san clemente community, san clemente villas

I think it gives a gift that nothing else gives. There are people out in the world who have no one, and I always do my best to make sure they find a way to connect with others.  I count amongst my  greatest blessings the friends, family and community that I am a part of, and I celebrate that.

Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. tomorrow is never guaranteed to any of us. Go, make plans, gather, share and enjoy your loved ones while they are still here. Live a life with no regrets.
