You Only Live Once

This phrase is so often taken to the extreme:
Life is short, this is the only one there is. So let's do something stupid and crazy because who really wants to grow old anyway?
Since I have started looking inward and getting in deeper connection with my Creator I have a different view.
The heartache of the last month has made me aware...
We only have one life...
Enjoy that cup of tea.
Read a book with your daughter.
Star gaze with your son.
Wake up early and watch the sun rise.
Hold the hand of your love.
Read or maybe even write that novel.
Grab a canvas and a paintbrush and see what happens.
Listen to a cat purr.
Throw a ball for your dog.
Take that walk.
Really listen to that music...take it in.
Smell that rose. a coloring book...with crayons. Preferably with a 3 year old at your side.
Hug your loved ones and tell them you love them because you never know when it will be for the last time.
Yes, we only have one life, shouldn't that be enough?
I intend to enjoy every minute of it...even the small things.
Because if you are fully enjoying life.. the small things aren't really small at all...they may just be some of the most profound moments of your life.
