So What Is A Great Life?
To have a great life is to appreciate the gift that each one of us is given.
It is not a gift to take for granted or a gift that you should use without regard for the world around you.
It is not a gift that should be squandered or a gift that can be recovered once wasted.
Use Your Day
To have such a gift means that each day is a continuance that is given to you to use to the fullest.
This does not mean that each day is simply another day full of drudgery, or a day filled with sorrow, spite or vengeful thinking.
It also does not mean that you give away a day without feeling the value of life where you can contribute your own special behavior that reflects your value.
A Personal Philosophy
It is a personal philosophy that counts each day as worthy and does not see tomorrow as being better.
It is about being as good and able as you can each day where tolerance for the less fortunate or those who fail to meet your expectations is forgiven, and where being positive in the here and now precedes thinking that one can postpone being positive or living constructively can be put off until another day.
It is the art of taking a step a day to move to what you need to become for tomorrow is what you are today.
Each day is a special moment in the present tense that cannot be reversed or taken again so it is vitally important to accept that you are the one in control of you every moment of every day.
So, I share with you the message that I was getting from people I met, and from the books I was reading last week - "Enjoy your life, not just the day!"
Inspirational Quotes for Reflection:
"Each of my days are miracles. I won't waste my day; I won't throw away miracle." Kelley Vicstrom
"Look for opportunities in every change in your life." Meir Liraz
"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it'd be easy, they just promised it would be worth it." Author Unknown
