Life is lived once. Be happy. What should you be doing today? What do you want to be doing today? Where should you be today? Where do you want to be today?
An old friend who recently died said, "Do what you enjoy."
Life is not only about our gratification. We have family members and work associates who are impacted by our decisions. To totally go off the wall and make decisions that are only about us is careless. To never make decisions that are about us is stupid.
Another dying friend recently told his Facebook followers to pursue life and go for whatever dreams or goals they had in life. While he had pursued many of his I also got the message that he had unfinished business or dreams that he had cast aside and never pursued.
Don't live your life with regrets. Get in the game and enjoy whatever time you have to play the game. Or, get on the road and enjoy the scenery along the way. Life for many people is watching life go by. We watch others live on television. We watch others at sporting events. We sit on the sofa and vegetate, get depressed, eat too much, get fat and then need drugs to get us through the day.
Life is for living. We weren't created to watch life go by. Life was never intended to be a non-active existence.
Today get up and do something and do it a lot. As long as it's legal, moral and healthy what do you have to lose? Don't spend a lot of time asking others what you should be doing. They really don't know your heart. Ask yourself, talk to God about it and then move forward with living and be happy.
