“Live life to the fullest, for the future is scarce.” – Nick Carter
There’s times in which it’s easy to believe that our number of days are indefinite. Before, this was something I thought for sure. I kept many grudges, waited a long time to do certain things – time wasn’t an issue, so I thought. There’s a right of passage once you open your eyes and realize that time waits for no one and the time to do something, is now.
I know the purpose of this site is to cover entertainment related stories and I don’t want to throw my readers off by writing a personal post, but it’s important you all read this and I promise it’s relevant. A friend of mine, not close but someone I had graduated high school with had been missing for over a year. Unfortunately, the family had just been notified that DNA from a body part found in the ocean was that of Fanchesca Alvarado.
Grant it you hear stories of scenarios like these all the time, whether it’s from an episode of Law & Order:SVU or maybe a movie on Lifetime. Never do you imagine this would happen to someone that sat next to you in class, even a few times in discipline lol.
Sadly, this is life and these things really do happen. She was only 22 years old, enrolled in college and a mother of a beautiful three year old. She had her entire life ahead of her, and just like that it was taken away from her. As of now, no one still knows what happened. Only information provided is that she went with a male to Atlantic City for a night out. He returned to Philadelphia, yet she was never seen again. There’s so many things wrong with this story, it’s absolutely absurd. I can not even begin to imagine what her family is going through and they all have my deepest condolences.
For those of you that have been following Delilah and Company since the beginning, you know the whole mission is to inspire people to live life to their full potential and follow every dream. Make mistakes, then get back up and take the lesson you learn and keep on moving. Do things you love.
There comes a time when you have to stop believing you have an endless supply of days and just live your life. Be happy. Set yourself free from those grudges you are holding onto, release yourself of all negative energy and for once, just be happy. Remember to remind those around you that you love them, never leave a house angry because you never know just what may happen.
Franchesca was a beautiful young woman full of life. Never would she had imagined that when she hugged her daughter before she left, that would be her last hug. Remember to enjoy every single minute of your life as if it were your last. We all have obstacles in life, we all face challenges but don’t ever remain defeated. Follow your hopes, not your fears. If not for yourself, do it for all those people whose lives were taken away from them to soon and live it for them. Don’t waste away at your life by filling your days with negative energy. Just always remain positive.
On that note, this is for you Franchesca. I promise to you I will enjoy every second I can for you. There will be times where obstacles will be thrown my way and I will get angry or frustrated, but I promise I won’t ever let those feelings get the best of me. I will instead take that moment, calm down and just be grateful that I’m alive. It is with great optimism that I believe justice will be served for you and your loved ones. Fly high baby girl. <3
