Love Life

Life is short. As humans, we think we’ll live forever… it scares us to believe otherwise. How many of us truly appreciate life daily? How many of us really only appreciate life until someone we know has had their own life taken from them? Until someone you know or love has had their own life threatened? Tell the ones you love that you love them. You’re not always given tomorrow… they don’t always have tomorrow. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. So love the ones who treat you right and forgive the ones who don’t.

“Love is an art that is learned and a discipline that is practiced.”

Love must be learned… and learned again and again. There is no end to love. “Love is the only emotion that isn’t natural. The only one that has to be learned and the only one that matters… love has to be learned. Love is a skill. Love involves giving.”

Everything that a person does says a lot about him/her… everything a person doesn’t do says more.

“Words may show a man’s wit, but his actions show his meaning.”

I’ve learned the most valuable lessons by taking wrong turns and making poor decisions. As much as I felt I was suffering, I don’t think the lesson would be as valuable if it were painless.

If you want to fail, compare your life to someone else’s. Success is finding happiness in your own life. You know you’ve made it when you want for nothing because you realize you have all you’ll ever need.

“For light, go directly to the source of light, not any reflections.” Always keep your face to the sun so you never see the shadows. You become the company you keep. Surround yourself with decent, honest, positive people and soon those attributes will become a reflection of your personality.

Life is always worth living and it’s worth living to the fullest. There are people who aren’t given as much time here as they’d like. Embrace life in honor of those people who God called home before you think their time was necessarily up.

Life is good… and it’s ALWAYS worth it.

One thought on “Love Life

  1. You might enjoy the book “the art of happiness” by the Dali Llama. He discusses the idea of comparing ourselves with others who have less rather than more.
