Life Is For The Living

This Sparked Me!

Someone wise once said: Life is for the living. I understand it more that I am an adult with a family and responsibilities. Because of work and other responsibilities, we let life just happen to us. We need to live--not just survive. Don't view the world from the outside. Come in.

Don't LET life happen; MAKE it happen!

    One of the mistakes I made in the past was letting life "happen" to me. Now I re-invent my life every day.

    I like this thought. We simply need to live in "day-tight" compartments. just for today, do well. Don't let in the past and do not think of the future. today only-- it's all we can control. emoticon

    Scared of Frogs,
I agree with you. I think we get either overwhelmed or underwhelmed, and just sit back. It can be easier not to react, respond or participate. In the long run, it can be devastating to the life you live. We can't just wait for things to happen; we have to be the change that we are seeking.

Today: Day 1

    Sometimes I feel like I let days slip by and then there are days that feel like so much happened that I lived at least a month in that day.

    I agree with this completely.
