365 Days of Happiness (161/365)

The world lost a bit of magic yesterday.  The beautiful one, Prince, died yesterday.


As children of the 80’s….Prince was ours.  I say that, but he belongs to all of us, all generations.  Even as young girls. my daughters experienced Prince, through me.  Raspberry Beret, Little Red Corvette, Purple Rain, and my favorite, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World.

He was a poet, a musical genius, who transcended generations, culture, race, gender……he found a way to speak to all of us.  His message?  Oh, don’t rely on me (or anyone else) to tell you …. go, spend time with Prince and listen to the words from the master himself.

Live your life, on your terms.  Be kind to one another.  Be YOU.  And don’t wait.  Life is fragile, and we never know how many days any one of us will get.  Go Be Bold.  And remember the Purple One.  Dearest Prince, — we are still listening, and will be forever.  Thank you…. for it all.    Go in Peace.   #ChooseHappiness365 (161/365)

Ciao for now….Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
