In light of the recent tragedy that has touched all of us in blogland, I've spent a lot of time thinking about how I spend my time. As we all know, life is short, too short, really, and it can change in an instant. Everyone always says, "live each day to the fullest," but sometimes that can be difficult when you sit in a cubicle for eight hours or are having trouble making ends meet. We spend more time making plans and dreaming of what can be instead of actually living, being, and doing. Fortunately, I believe living to the fullest doesn't have to be grandiose. It can be simple.
For me, I just have to follow a few simple instructions.
create. then create something else.
look up. and look down. see things when you're walking down the street.
be considerate and give attention to others regardless of how different they may be.
remember what it's like being a kid.
dream. and take a lot of naps.
tell the people you love that you love them. every day.
