You Only Live Once

     You only live once
      But if you do it right
    Once is all you need! (unknown)

I smiled when I read this. Then I thought, you know this is so true. We only have one life so we need to live it to the fullest. We won't have a dry run. We won't be able to stop and start over. We have today and hopefully tomorrow. There is no time to worry about yesterday. It's gone. Done.

Here's a motto to live by. I may have posted it before, but I think it's worth rereading.

      Life should NOT be a journey to the grave
      with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive
      and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,
      body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming,
      "WOO HOO what a ride!" (unknown)

Smile - it makes you feel good.
Dare to do something just for you, something you wouldn't normally do.
Enjoy the little things each day - a beautiful blue sky, the sound of a bird singing, the laughter of little children, a grubby, sticky hug from a child.
Live your life so you can say, "Woo Hoo, what a ride!

Happy Reading!
