Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - We're always getting ready to live, but never living.

SparkPeople's Comments

We spend so much time planning out our lives that we never actually live them! You have permission to stop thinking for a moment and just enjoy yourself. Stop looking at your computer right now and go look at the world. Try to take a few moments each day like this to reflect on the present and be grateful for what you have in this life. It will make a huge impact on your day-to-day mood and outlook!

I agree. Too much time is spent on the prep. work that we don't have time for the real thing. Living.

This is a great reminder to sit back and think about what you have and go on living your life as if it's your last day.

Luckily I love who I am and where I'm at in my life , the thing is I want to remain healthy while on this journey. But I am grateful for each and every day and moment that I am here.

Emerson could not have said it any better. This fall is the perfect time to start "smelling the roses" or enjoying the beautiful fall colors. Enjoy life now! We only get one.

That is the truth......wonder what it would be like to be free. I just live each day like I will not be returning in the morning so I just guess I had better keep doing what I am doing . It is too late to be free. Need that stability.

I love this quote! It reminds me of an opposite quote that I strive for "my life is better than your vacation." Kind of rude, but I'd love to live life ll as relaxing and stress free as a vacation!

live each day as it is the first not the last of the rest of your life. remember we will be living eternally with God with wonders beyond our imagination.

I agree, live in the present because we never know when it will be the last day - especially with those we love. Look at those poor people in the Batman movie in Colorado. They thought they were just going to a midnight movie.

have lived a good life and am closer to the end rather than the beginning but that does not stop me from living one day at a time
