LIVE. AND LIVE WELL. BREATH.
BREATHE IN AND BREATHE DEEPLY. BE PRESENT.
DO NOT BE PAST. DO NOT BE FUTURE. BE NOW.
On a crystal clear breezy 70 degree day, roll down the windows and FEEL the wind against your skin. FEEL the warmth of the sun.
If you run, then allow those first few breaths on a cool autumn day to FREEZE your lungs and do not just be alarmed BE ALIVE.
Get knee-deep in a novel and lose track of time.
IF YOU BIKE, PEDAL HARDER AND IF YOU CRASH THEN CRASH WELL.
FEEL THE SATISFACTION OF A JOB WELL DONE: A PAPER WELL WRITTEN, A PROJECT THOROUGHLY COMPLETED, A PLAY WELL PERFORMED.
IF YOU MUST WIPE THE SNOT FROM YOUR 3 YEAR OLD'S NOSE, DON'T BE DISGUSTED IF THE KLEENEX DIDN'T CATCH IT ALL BECAUSE SOON THEY WILL BE CATCHING IT ALL BY THEMSELVES.
If you recently experienced loss, then GRIEVE, AND GRIEVE WELL.
At the table with friends and family LAUGH. If you are eating and laughing at the same time, then you might as well laugh until you puke. AND IF YOU EAT...... THEN SMELL! The aromas are not an impediment to your day. Steak on the grill. Coffee beans freshly ground. COOKIES IN THE OVEN.
TASTE EVERY OUNCE OF FLAVOUR. TASTE EVERY OUNCE OF FRIENDSHIP. TASTE EVERY OUNCE OF LIFE. BECAUSE IT IS MOST DEFINITELY A GIFT.
