Don't wait for devestation to start to live

Live in the moment

People spend their lives working waiting for retirement so they can enjoy life, but then some kind of devestation happens in their life and they are no longer able to do anything. They become slaves of cancer, strokes, heart failure, paralysis, and even death and guess what? They never enjoyed anything.

Live in the moment and do the things you want to do now. Don't wait for the children to grow up or get so involved in everyone else's life that you can't enjoy your own.

Everyday I look in the faces of people dieing with cancer and some will never get to enjoy one minute in life again. They won't have their favorite dessert because now everything taste like metal. They won't see their grand children grow up or even see their own children get married.

They wanted to wait til they retired to travel, see the world, and finally live. But that time never came or will come because if they live to see another day it will be a miracle.

Why do we think we are not deserving of doing what we want to do now? I made a vow a few years back that every year I would go somewhere because I don't want to wait til I retire to enjoy my life.

Yesterday i was 25 next year I will be 50 those 25 years flew like it was an hour. If you can't take time now to enjoy your life then when? I save a little each month and go without some things in order to have a nice vacation every single year or to go see my family when I can.

I won't leave this world being untraveled or not know what it was like to see the beauty our world displays.

Life is too short people. Live Well, Love Much, and Laugh Often. When you're 20 you will think I have a long time before I get old but let me tell you it will go by quickly and you won't know what happened to all those years.

Do what you want to now because tomorrow is never promised to anyone.
