“Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find ”tomorrow” on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday’s defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, ”If I had my life to live over again. ”Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day! Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”
Og Mandino quotes
So quickly we humans can forget how important it is to care, use kindness, understanding and love. How quickly we can wish for a reward only for ourselves. How quickly we can forget in a moment of anger, despair, or chaos just how important life is. Take the time to LOVE. Take the time to SHARE. Take the time to give THANKS. Take the time to use KINDNESS. Take the time to show Understanding. Take the time to allow yourself to be HUMAN. Take the time to allow others their right to be human. Take the time To hold anther’s HAND. Take the time to speak the word LOVE. Take the time to show someone you CARE! Give a HUG. We have but one life. Life is a Gift. Lift your face to the the sky and let your Heart sing!
