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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
What do you do when life throws you melons. Well, if you’re dyslexic you scramble the letters and get life is now throwing you lemons. And what do you do with lemons? That’s right, you make lemonade. After that you get some limes and scramble the letters so they say smile. You see, there is no riddle you can’t solve with a little thought and ingenuity. You just have to be willing to try. Open your eyes to all the possibilities. Don’t sit there and say “ouch the melons really hurt.” Figure out what to do with them. Or anything else life throws at you. You CAN do anything. Just open your eyes and your mind.
