Live Life To The Fullest

Enjoy Life Quote

If you had the opportunity to do one thing
You really wanted to do right now, what would it be?

Would you take up a new hobby?
Learn a new skill?
Go on a trip?
Start eating healthier?
Call a long-lost friend?
Spend more time with someone you love?

Now ask yourself,
What’s stopping you from making that happen?

Life is too short to live with regrets.
You are not guaranteed a tomorrow.

Live every moment of your life to the fullest.
The present is a gift you can give yourself today!

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
