Living Life to the Fullest 1

 A lil Poem..

If you treasure the beauty
that shows all around you
and try to add some of your own,
Enjoy the companionship
others can give you,
yet value your moments alone…

If you honor opinions
that differ from yours,
yet stand up for what you believe,
Admire the accomplishments
others have made,
and take pride in what you can achieve…

If you love those around you
and love yourself, too,
if your spirit is eager and free…
Then you know what it means
to live life to the fullest
and be the best "you" you can be.

The challenge we all have today is finding time to live!

*Well, anyone reading this article is alive, obviously.

*But do you feel alive?

*Do you feel like you are living and enjoying life?

*Are you numbed by job stress or high demands of an
over-booked schedule, seldom having time to enjoy
some of life’s simple pleasures?

If you belong to this category, I would like to
recommend a change. It’s called “live in the moment”.
Take time to smell the roses, look at the sunset, sit for a
minute andlisten carefully to the sounds around you. Hold
hands with someone. We all know the concept. But, I’d bet
thatyou are just like me and have spent time cheating
yourself out of those precious moments.

I’m sure you will all agree with me, that life is too short.
So, take advantage of every given moment. Give yourself
the gift of “living life to the fullest.”

For me I decided to do these and i'm finding life more lovely:

Begin each day with gratitude.

Sit quietly for a few minutes and notice the beauty of
the day.

Hear the sounds of the morning.

Be aware of everything you are experiencing.

See what new things you can discover in your daily routine.

Discover wonderful new sights, sounds, tastes and
sensations where you’ve been everyday and just too busy
to notice.

Do something I’ve always wanted to do, but have never
taken the time to do before.

Share these joyful moments with a loved one or a friend.

Smile and laugh. They are cherished by everyone, so is

Be in the moment.

Enjoy that moment.

Once you have treated yourself to this new exercises too,
you will begin your journey to living life to the fullest!
