fra-gile, adj. - easily broken or destroyed; delicate
You know how when you're young, you think you'll always "be"? The older I get, the more I understand how fragile life truly is. "Being" is a delicate state. On the one hand that's a sad realization. On the other hand, in my never-ending quest to not always be the "glass half empty" kinda of gal I naturally gravitate to...it's good motivation to seize the day and be joyful. Dontcha think?
