Make Each Moment Last

Updated on December 4, 2013

By Creating A Life That You Love

As much as I have tried

I can't slow down time

Not even a little bit

So I do the next best thing

Enjoy all the time I have

Loving the little things

Making the big things in my life so much better

If I am taking a quick cat nap in the afternoon

I will try to make that the best sleep ever

Writing a story that brings me some deep inner satisfaction

One that I have so little to show

Words on paper

Four Hours gone by

Are they wasted ?

Could my time be better spent ?

It is too early to tell

I could of went to the gym and worked out

Turned on the t.v. and watched a movie

Work a second job and make more money

Will the top three give me more happiness than I already have

The answer is no

Exercising is always a good thing

Making money to pay a bill or put it away as an emergency fund are important to

Relaxing at home takes the stress off life

Everything here has a right to be there

So does writing

It relaxes me without the use of television

I get to be as creative as I want

Thinking up something that hasn't been written before

Is a first

That in itself makes me happy

Stretching my mind to the ends of the earth

That is a challenge I take on

When I write one line or a story ten pages long

My mind has to be in the best shape for me to live a long healthy life

What better way than to write every day

Keeping my thoughts alive and well

People can continue to live an active life without the use of their legs

Even if one arm doesn't work the best

If something happens to your mind

Then you are in one big mess

I don't think there is no going back once the mind is gone

No do overs and start fresh

You have my answer

It's the best reason yet

      Good reminder. While everything is fully functioning it is so important to live life to the fullest. I have written a morning prayer which says that we thank God for the fact that we are able to work and do and live and that those are some of the most important things.
