January 10, 2007 -- Laugh your head off!
Today is Wednesday, that dreaded middle day. Feeling like you are in a funk? Having a hard time keeping those resolutions? Promises to yourself? Feeling like it is the same old thing every day? I think this quote is the cure. I know some of you might think this quote is depressing - but to me - it is like my life value statement. What about you? Happy Wednesday - LIVE IT!!
Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough. *** William Saroyan***
It's like someone is reading my mine with these quotes. Or maybe they are all just appropriate for the beginning of the year and that's where my mind is right now. I just had a discussion with someone at work the other day about living life to the fullest. I see so many people complaining about things that don't matter and wasting so much of their time being unhappy, when it's not necessary. Life was not meant for that. It is meant to be lived with joy and enthusasim. You don't get to go back and do this over. All cliches, but "time goes by so fast" and "you can't get it back" and "I can't believe it's January (Feb, March, etc.) already" all tell us to live life to the fullest before it's over. That's what I try to do, being alive in every minute of every single moment of every single day.
