Happy Friday 😊 Another week under your belt!
How was your week? Did you live each and every moment to the fullest?
There is the old adage that says, “you only live once” and in the last seven or eight years, YOLO (You Only Live Once) has become a well-known acronym, used on social media, in rap music and even as a tattoo. However, last week we talked about having a fresh perspective. So, in terms of YOLO, maybe we need to change our perspective. What if our perspective was, we only die once; but, we live each and every day. (Just food for thought……)
Being present, truly experiencing your life and living each moment to the fullest does not mean that something monumental has to occur or even that you won’t encounter hard times. If you realize that this moment is your life and you take a breath, smile, laugh, connect with yourself or others; then, it has been a successful, fulfilling day of life 😊.
Here are some quick tips for living life to the fullest each and every day:
Make a positive difference in someone else’s life
Show compassion and kindness to everyone around you. Forgive. Be empathetic. It could be as simple as asking someone how they are doing, smiling at them, lending a helping hand. By thinking of others and trying to connect, you will experience each day in a more meaningful, fulfilling way.
Set goals and consistently work to achieve them. Keep learning! There is something to learn from everything you see, hear and experience.
Do something you enjoy EACH DAY
Quit putting your life on hold! As Thomas S. Monson said, “Don’t save things for a special occasion. Every day of your life is a special occasion”.
I hope you have a great day and a great weekend, celebrating each and every moment of your life; and as Dr. Seuss says, “Today I shall behave as if this is the day I will be remembered."
Have a GREAT WEEKEND!!
