There is so much to love about life, and so much to do to enjoy it.
I recently read a blog post by SW on A Free Mind and it made me think once again about how true the above statement is. Here is her beautiful advice~
Be humble. Be kind. Know that you'll make mistakes and it'll be embarrassing, but have a sense of humor.
Laugh.You might as well have fun.
Tell people you love them, and be gentle.
Question everything, and I mean everything. Because the truth can take it, but nothing else can. And it's the truth that matters.
Take chances and do things that scare you. Never close your eyes to possibility.
Don't box up reality and pretend you know its walls.
Look up, at the sky. Taste the air on the tip of your tongue. Watch the clouds move.
Take care of yourself, always be gentle. Cry if you need to, but don't give up hope. Look for things to be grateful for. Smile. Hug. Breathe deeply, in and out. Do it now.
Be brave. Seek out life. Know that adventure is close to you, rubbing up against you daily. Take it by the hand and welcome it in.
Notice colors when you see them, tell yourself "that's blue" or "pink". Look for your favorite colors.
Be aware of your self breathing in and out, thinking, feeling. Close your eyes and let your mind go black. Rest.
Don't make assumptions. Don't judge. Don't become too familiar with your opinions.
Laugh, smile, make laughter creases around your eyes.
Drink water. Stretch. Skip. Read books. Clap your hands. Shake your head around so your hair gets messy. Scrunch up your nose. Smell flowers. Taste your food like you're on a cooking show. Talk to people.
Have discipline. Be tidy. Be polite. Enjoy things. Learn. Take initiative.
Sing. Dance. Twirl. Give piggyback rides. Use more adjectives. Cuddle. Remember the things you love. Make a list of them.
Have fun. Work hard. Sleep well. Look up, at the stars.
Check out this incredible world. Be friendly.
Think, before you act. Be safe.
Love, as much as you can.
