Prince: I didn't know you, but I mourn you

Well today I had planned a different post, but I felt the need to write about the death of Prince.

The sudden passing of such a music icon leaves the world in shock. As 2016 continues to take the great people in the entertainment world, it also reminds me that nothing lasts forever. Death forgets no one, and when it's your time, you go.

I feel the same ache I felt when Robin Williams passed. It left a pain in my heart, not because I knew either of them, but because their presence was apart of my whole life.

Music has always been a big part of my life. My parents always made sure we had something to sing to or dance to as children. Prince was apart of that.

I can specifically look back at quite a few memories just by the mention of a few specific Prince songs.

As we do not have any real solid answers yet as to why this life was taken to soon, it reminds me that everyday is not promised. It also reminds me that the choses we make every day can effect our tomorrow's.

Last night I forgot that nothing is promised. I went to bed angry. The worst feeling in the world. Take today to remind youself, as I did when I got up that today is a present. Accept it and make the best of it.

I will leave you with that thought while I jam out to Kiss by Prince. It always brings me back to Julia Roberts in the bathtub in Pretty Woman.

What's your favorite Prince song?
