I forgot to Live, Do you?


We often take our life granted and keep us busy always. Thus we forget to live the wonderful moment in this gifted life.

First, I was dying to finish my high school and start college
And then I was dying to finish college and start working
Then I was dying to marry and have children
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough
So I could go back to work, but then I was dying to retire
And now I’m dying…And suddenly I realized
I forgot to LIVE

Let us stop this race and start appreciating current situation whatever it is and enjoy each day, hour, minute, second.

To make money we lose our health,
And then to restore our health we lose our money…
We live as if we are never going to die,
And we die as we never LIVED…

So important to remember to take time and enjoy what is around us! Particularly at this season, we need to pause and remember where our focus should be.

Thank you for your visits to my blog!

I can't remember if I've visited/left a comment on your blog before, this may be my first time. But I so agree with you. We do rush things don't we in our lives? And then we sit back and realize how fast it goes regardless of us rushing for those events to happen. My kids are grown now, but I tell new, young moms to enjoy the times with their kids right where they are at right now, don't rush things, savor the times, even the hard days because it just goes by way too fast!

This is so true. I had a friend that always wished her weeks away because she wanted the weekends to get here fast. I always tried to tell her to enjoy her days and stop wishing her life away.
Happy Thursday to you! :)

So sad - we are always wishing for the next best thing or looking over our shoulder. A lovely reminder to stay in the present. xo Karen

That's definitely food for thought. We are always in a rush to hop to the next best thing, we need to learn to appreciate the beauty of each day.

Yes, we do seem to hurry through life, don't we? As I get older, I have more time to 'live' --and enjoy life. I guess that is the glory of retirement.

Thanks for your sweet comment about my 101 yr. old father-in-law dying. He lived an amazing life--and never once was in the hospital. That's an inspiration.

Merry Christmas.
Hugs,
Betsy

What a great post and good reminder for all of us to enjoy the moment and stop wishing our life away. I do sit back and wonder where the years went, and now each year I get older, the years/days fly by even faster.

The poem says it all, we sometimes forget to live esp when we are busy and we tend to help others i guess that's life we have to look up for others and hopefully spare a little time for ourselves in the end of the day.
