To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.

Oscar Wilde 

May 6th - make the most of life 

If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.

Ray T. Bennett

 Our life is what our thoughts make it.  Our dreams and passions make us feel alive.  They give us reason to wake up each morning and live life with intention, direction and the drive to accomplish something bigger than ourselves.  We need to live our lives to the fullest, If we create the life of our creams then we leave behind the habit of merely existing.

One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.

William Feather

This life is what we make of it. 

Adopt an attitude of gratitude.
Follow your heart
Practice unconditional love
Enjoy the simple things
Give without Expectations
Live in the Now

We have to live life with a sense of urgency so not a minute is wasted

Les Brown

The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. - Eleanor Roosevelt

I so agree with you, dear. Why waste a moment on worry, and regret? There is something in every day to enjoy and be thankful for! How can we possibly grow emotionally, and spiritually by being stagnant? We are to be rivers of flowing water. I was tickled at your comment about collecting garden gnomes. My second daughter LOVES them! They definitely bring her smiles! She has groups of them for every holiday, and occasion. Inside, and outside her home. I am glad you have a collection of gnomes to keep a twinkle in your eye, and a smile on your face. Happy Mothers Day, sweet friend. xxoo

Great advice that is for sure. Live today, and yes at times we just exist, I need to practice living better. I do spend too much time on yesterday and tomorrow.
I did like today though! LOL
Sherry & jack we are a little cool but nice.

Great advice! I really enjoy reading Ann Voskamp, and something she wrote struck a nerve: Stop living like everything's an emergency.
