The Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln: Day 4
This is one of my favorite quotes. It is very to the point and is an attitude we all should adopt. We can never take for granted or know how long our time on earth will be. So instead of worrying or fearing the end of our lives we should be enjoying and appreciating every moment in it.
Living in the now and enjoying the moment is something that many of us do not do. Instead we worry about what happened yesterday or what tomorrow might bring. We obsess over every little thing that goes wrong, or the way someone did or said something to us. Instead we need to live our life each and every moment as if it was our last. This goes along with our previous entry, "The Three Levels of Life". You need to look at your life and see if you are just surviving or if you are truly living and enjoying it.
Do what makes you happy, what brings you joy, and what brings joy to others. Do what your purpose in life is. Spread love, joy, and compassion to those around you. Put life into your years!
