Chapter 6, Page 18, Book 16



Live every moment, laugh every day, love beyond words. 

June 18 - Live the moments

Whether it's the best of times or the worst of times, it's the only time we've got.

Art Buchwald


We need to be reminded that life’s too short to spend everyday doing work you hate. Life’s too short to hold grudges against people we love. Life’s too short not to see the wonders of the world. Life’s too short to not live life to the fullest.


In each moment we should make an attempt to make the best out of it, whether it be a situation that is already positive, or whether it be a situation that we need to help spin in a positive light. Live every moment, and remember that eventually the future will be the present.  Take time out to laugh each day, laughter is not only food for the soul, but it also helps to heal the soul in parts it may be broken. 


And Love...Love with everything inside of you. Love because love is the center of life. Our souls are filled with love, so be sure to thoroughly love whatever may be in our hearts. Love the people around you. Love your friends. Love your enemies. Love the memories you are able to make. Most of all make sure you will love the legacy you leave behind on earth.

Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.

Walt Whitman

I like the last line of what you wrote, Ma, I think it is so true to love the legacy you will be leaving behind. Both ways, a good one or a bad one, will be remembered long after we are gone.

As happens so often these days, I find myself resonating with your words.
Like Betty just echoed ... it's so important to consider the legacy we leave behind.

I like the Buckwald quote, ain't it the truth!

I do enjoy the few laughs I get anymore, even if they are the result of something 'silly or stupid' I have done. I can laugh at myself!

Love this sentiment. "We need to be reminded that life’s too short to spend everyday doing work you hate. Life’s too short to hold grudges against people we love. Life’s too short not to see the wonders of the world."

I try to take these words to heart, but often fall short.
