Celebrate this event called LIFE

I came across an amazing quote. I have no idea who wrote it, but I absolutely love it because it reminds us to celebrate this event called LIFE:

“As soon as you die, your identity becomes a “Body”. People use phrases like: “Bring the body”, “Lower the body in the grave”, “Take the body to the graveyard”, etc. People don’t even call you by your name whom you tried to impress your whole life…Live a life to impress the Creator not the Creation.

Take chances…Tell the truth…Learn to say NO…Spend money on things you love…Laugh till your stomach hurts…Dance even if you are bad at it…Pose stupidly for photos…Be child-like…

Moral:  Death is not the greatest loss in life…Loss is when life dies inside you while you are alive…Celebrate this event called LIFE…”

Seriously love it! It’s true. We need to take more chances and laugh more and dance…always dance… We need to live our lives as if we really mean it and appreciate each moment. We can’t keep sitting around waiting for the life we are “going to have someday”. We have to stop waiting for things to be as we want them to be and start celebrating what they are right now in this very moment. That’s what we need to do gosh dang it!!!

I’m going to keep this blog short today so you can all hurry up and get out there today and CELEBRATE LIFE!  SO YEEE HAWWW BABY!!!!! Start celebrating!

    Amy,

    I’m not sure if you remember me, “Mediconnect Man”, but I’m grateful I still have the opportunity to receive your inspiration like I did when I worked for you at MCG.

    As I am enjoying significant success in my life, I start to look at why it took so long (I was a very late bloomer), and what changed to help me overcome the barriers in my life that I allowed to slow me down. The truth is, I stopped caring about why I was trying to succeed and what I needed to do “to be able to live how I wanted”, and just started living how I wanted. The success came from that. I learned how to manage my life, my time, my relationships better to enable me to continue living how I wanted (for myself and my family). And even better, it happened as it needed, so I didn’t have to spend so much energy worrying and focusing on worrying and focusing.

    I celebrate, I live, I love my children, my life is pretty amazing from it. I wear happiness now like a blanket and it touches every part of my life and I live through that happiness in all things.

    I have so much worth celebrating in my life right now, I don’t think it’s worth the effort to stop celebrating at all.

    This post hits home right now, thanks for sharing it.

    Keep rockin’ it, Wonder Woman!

    Stu
