I don't usually make New Years resolutions as I think everyday is a fresh start brimming with countless opportunities to do a little more, to live with intention and to make a special effort. Every day has the potential to be a great day so why wait until January?!
I am loathe to use the term YOLO (you only live once), however I fully agree with the notion of living each and every day to the fullest. So I too embrace living each day in the knowledge that this is our one and only chance and we will never live to experience this moment ever again, so let's make this one count.
There is a charming article doing the rounds on Facebook recently and I found it very thought provoking and inspiring. I decided to research the author, 90 year old Regina Brett and see if she had any other pearls of wisdom. It turns out that Regina is in fact 56, not 90! You can read more about the journalist and her amusing account of being an urban legend here. You can read the 50 life lessons here. It doesn't really matter to me who wrote it and how are old they are, I just think it is a superb list of life lessons that most of us can relate to.
These are a few of my favourites
In all the planning for the next twelve months let us not forget to live in the here and now, enjoying the simple pleasures of each and every day.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year making every day count.
