I woke up one morning and I experienced this enthusiasm for life.

I had this urge to live every day of my life like it’s the last one.

This is what I wrote…at 5:30 A.M.   ( I read this a couple of days later and asked myself: Wouldn’t it be nice to feel like this all the time?)

There are so many places to visit, people to meet, books to read , books to write,  movies to watch, sports to practice, dances to learn , museums to visit, conversations to have, businesses to build, gardens to cultivate, pictures to draw, wine to taste, meals to cook, children to play with, jokes to laugh at, cars to drive, planes to fly, dogs to walk, great cities to discover…

My biggest challenge is to choose what I want first and foremost.

My time is so limited and yet, when I compare myself with other species, I have so much.

I look at the ravens and the squirrels in my backyard, no sooner that I put the bread and seeds for them to eat, a bunch of them come and pick some pieces.

These creatures don’t waste any time and their lives are short and simple, yet very efficient.

What is the point of all this rambling?

It is that some of us, humans, have a tendency to complicate simple things when we should just enjoy the moment.

We have so many possible activities to indulge in when we really think about it, it is overwhelming.

Think of the type of teas and coffees to try, newspaper, magazines to read and web sites to discover.

It’s a world of unlimited possibilities.

Life is too short not to live to the fullest and not to do what we love to do.

Bored on a Sunday afternoon?

How dare you?

Think of Monday morning coming soon…

This should inspire you not to waste your precious personal time.

We have to live our passion in order to be completely happy.

Maslow wrote many years ago , “What a man must be, he must be in order to be happy”.

Personally I try to constantly spend more time to work on the things that really make me happy.

I enjoy working on projects that make me enthusiastic.

I spend quite a lot of time reading, writing, visiting art museums.

I take my time trying to understand the works of art, the painter or the sculptor’s intentions, their state of mind at the time of creation.

I like to exercise and to enjoy the outdoors activities in order to breathe some fresh air, to experience the fullness and wholeness of living.

I really enjoy travelling and discovering new countries and new cities, new cultures and new people.

Well, I’m passionately curious!

Ask yourself:

What are the limitations that are preventing you to live your dream’s life?

What do you really enjoy doing when you have free time?

How could you spend more time on what you really care about?
