“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” John Lennon
I read once that if you woke up today, you are having a good day. No matter what--if you have a flat tire, or your team didn't win the big game, or anything. If you woke up, you are alive! Yet, so many people are stuck in the past, or a prisoner to fantasies of the future. You cannot unlock days gone by, and the future holds unfulfilled promises. Are you living in the moment? I am not talking about going off the handle and quitting your job or quitting life and doing every fancy you have at any given second, or changing mental directions as quickly as the wind turns. I mean, are you aware of yourself in the moment. Do you know what makes you happy and actively pursue that happiness? If you are in a place in life where you do not feel happiness or appreciation, get out of there right now! Life is too short and too precious!! Life is too short and too precious!! I am repeating myself with a good reason. If you didn't catch my message, let me repeat it again. Life is too short and too precious!! Start living. Right now! Carpe Diem! Every day you wake up. You don't live once! You live every second of your life. Every moment offers you a choice. Which one are you making?
