Make your life count.

How many of us really live our lives to the full?

Most of us, get up in the morning, have breakfast, go through daily tasks, go to bed at night to do it all over again tomorrow.

I have been reminded again recently how short life can be, and we have to make every second count.

We spend hours on worrying about things we can do nothing about, we worry about how others perceive us, we worry abut things that don’t really matter at the end of the day.

Often, we live the ‘what ifs’ in our lives.

Decisions we make,  define us.

We are always looking to the next minute, not just enjoying the minute we are now in, always thinking that the grass is always greener.

It should matter to us all how we spend each precious day.

Every single person has value and can make a difference, isn’t that what our purpose should be?

Try to do things you love, if you feel passion for what you do others will feel it too, always be true to yourself, don’t try to please everyone, that is never going to happen!

Focus on all the things that are important to you, don’t waste your precious time, don’t be fearful, believe in yourself, believe in your gut feeling it is generally correct.

Take back control, never take people for granted, remember to say how much you love them, and to say thank you often.

Filling our thoughts with regrets is not healthy, and those regrets are eating away at the time we have here on this amazing planet of ours.

We have to be courageous and embrace our potential, we all have it.

Let’s make our lives count, let’s make our mark, reach our full potential, whatever has gone before has past we have now, this minute, soak it in and bloom.

When did you last write a letter to a friend and thank them for their friendship?

Being kind is obvious but don’t forget to be kind to yourself.
