Life is short...live fully...
Today was a new day, fresh and clean...a day when I realized who my friends were, who are the people that support me, a day when I looked at myself and said, "you're okay."
We only have one shot at this life and we can either worry through it or we can live it fully. Think of those you might know who are always grumbling about their lives...who are they kidding? Do they think that they get another chance when this one is over? This is it...our one chance to live.
Being happy (or at least satisfied) is really the only option. I think about earlier years in my own life when I was miserable...a nearly nervous breakdown in my 20's, led to a depression that wasted a year of my life. A year that I can't get back. I look at that time, at that self, and I feel sad. Sad that I was willing to give up on being healthy in exchange for being sad. Sometimes when we are younger we don't bother to really look at the ramifications. Why is wisdom wasted on those who are older. If we could gather these ideas in our youth, think how much less time we would waste being miserable. We would leave the relationship that isn't giving back, we would be willing to abandon so called friends who are taking more than giving, we would prioritize ourselves, be selfish.
We have to be willing to give it all, take the leap, try harder, be satisfied, learn from our past, do better next time, make mistakes, revel in the experience.
We have to be willing to heal our broken heart, realize that we have the greatest power of all, love completely, walk away if we need to, laugh from the depths, cry for healing and share with reckless abandon.
Living life means making choices. Life without fear, worry, or exception. Life life to the fullest. When you look back, years from now you want to be able to say, "I did great!"
So start now!!
