Make each day your own beautiful work of art. Take time to do things that inspire you before you get started with your day. Take a walk outside to simply be with the sun as it rises; let its boundless glow inspire you and fill you with warmth. Read a few pages of a book that fills you with light. Hug your loved ones or play with your puppy for a few extra minutes. And as you go about your day, remember that there is magic all around you even if some days it’s harder to find.
At the end of your day, take a moment as you rest your head on your pillow to find gratitude for all the wonderful things you experienced and created throughout your day. Because even if this day wasn’t extraordinary, even if this day was an average one, it played a part in your beautiful life, and that’s something to be wonderfully grateful for.
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life”. I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Make your life about joy. Celebrate your big and little wins. Grow every day.
Enjoy the first sip of your morning coffee, and the second and third and fourth. Find something to smile about on your commute. Give hugs often, compliment others whenever you can. Get inspired. Nourish yourself. Go outside and spend time in nature. Take chances. Make the art. Watch the sunrise or sunset. Climb the mountain with your bestfriend.
Because life is just too short and fragile to not live a life of chasing joy. Life is fun, let it be. (Not my words).
