When life throws you lemons

There’s a lot of fruit out there in the world.  And, sometimes it gets thrown at you.  It only hurts if you let though.  Don’t let it hurt you.  Make something out of that fruit instead.  Make lemonade out of lemons.  Orange juice out of oranges, and turn limes into smiles.  Oh what a beautiful smile you have.

 

The most important things cannot be bought

There are many important things in life, but the most important and most precious of these things, cannot be bought.  Time for instance.  You cannot buy it and you can never get it back.  Memories created.  Those memories are priceless.  You can’t buy memories, and yet they can be cherished, laughed over, shared and remembered for decades and generations to come.  These are just a few examples.  Just always remember that the most important things in life are free.

 

What happens in between is what’s important

In our lives, we are born and eventually at some point we die.  But what’s important, are all the things that happen in between.  The person we are, and the person we evolve into.  The stamp we leave on this earth is so important.  The legacy we leave behind.  Resolve to be the absolute best, kindest, most giving and generous person you can be.  Leave nothing but a positive stamp or legacy when you go.  What you do and who are in between life and death are the important things.

 

Life is not guaranteed

Not living life is like not breathing. It is a gift given to us every day. Life is not guaranteed, so take advantage of every moment of life given to you. Don’t take it for granted. Live life to the fullest every moment of every day. Don’t regret not doing something you could have done with someone. Don’t regret not saying something to someone. Go ahead. If you’re not living life, start now.

Laughter cures all

Laughter cures what ails you. Laughter is contagious. Ever notice that when you start laughing, others around you start laughing too. Ever notice how the mood changes from ho hum to one of joviality. Laugh hysterically. Laugh until you cry. Laugh until you make others cry. Laugh, laugh, laugh. It’s good for you.

No one know how much time we have

Life in the whole scheme of things, when compared to the length of time the planet has been here, is very short. None of us knows how long it’s going to be for each individual. So get up every day and take advantage of the fact that you’re still here. Live every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day to it’s fullest. Make it a point every day to tell those around you that you love them. Take advantage of all the time given you.

Life is what you make it

 Life is what you make it. You can choose to make it fun, exciting, adventurous, social, or anything else that will spice it up. You can choose to make the best out of each day. O you can complain that your life is boring, unsocial, unadventurous. You have a choice. Make the one that will make your life fun and interactive. Full of adventure and excitement.

How do you define life?

Life is the sum total of every second that we have spent on this earth.  It’s up to us to take those seconds, minutes, hours, and days and make the best and most joyous that we can.  Take walks, and hikes.  Smell the flowers, the coffee, tea, and favorite foods.  Take it all in and wallow in it.  Roll around in all the splendor that life has to offer.  Do everything but squander it.

 

Leave the Debbie downers behind

Surround yourself with uplifting people. Surround yourself with people that are positive, funny, intelligent, make you laugh and smile. People that bring you up and that you would love to emulate and be like. Leave the Debbie downers for someone else. Allow yourself to be surrounded by amazing, loving, caring, wonderful, and uplifting people.

The future is more important than the past

Up to this point in our lives our journey has shaped who we are and who we have become as individuals. While the things that shaped us are important, what’s more important is what and who we choose to become moving forward. It’s an old saying, and almost a cliche’, but today really is the first day of the rest of your life and you have the power to make it anything you choose to make it. Go ahead. Make it something great. Just like you.
