“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
– Annie Dillard
So simple, and so true! Sometimes (too many times, maybe) we put off doing things because we figure that we have all the time in the world and we will get to it eventually, or because we are afraid of failing at whatever it may be, or because we just don’t know how to do it. Well, this quote made me think about how each day is too precious to not do everything that is important and truest to our hearts. Do the things that you most enjoy, live each day to its fullest, spend time with loved ones, take risks, break a bad habit, do a good deed, take a class and learn something new, smile, laugh, dream, decide that it is possible.
Really, it may sound cliche, but what have you gained, what is the point, if you look back on your days and see what you have not done rather than what you have? ~Melissa
