Laugh, love and Live. Thursday June 16, 2016

I recently spent some time with a friend and her baby and I actually wished I was a child again... to be carefree, not have the stresses or responsibilities of being an adult!

Have you ever noticed how a child is always laughing and happy? If children get into a fight it usually lasts no longer than a few moments yet when adults get into a fight they hold grudges for greater periods of time, sometimes destroying a friendship of many years over nothing!

I went to a talk recently and the speaker talked of finding our inner child and starting to live life to the fullest. One thing that the speaker spoke about was "Laugh, Love and Live! Laugh so your sides and cheeks hurt, love with all your heart and Live life as though it was your last day!" We must remember people will not remember us for the amount of money we made, how many houses we have, the exotic places we visit or the cars we drive, they will remember the laughs we had together, the love we shared and the adventures we lived through!

So the next time you take a walk in the park, take your shoes off and let the grass tickle your feet. The next time your child asks you to play with them, put down your phone or put away the laptop, disconnect from technology and become a child again. Next time your spouse suggests going to dinner and a movie, become a teenager again going out on that special "first date"!

We need to get our priorities right in life... as the saying goes "All work and no play makes us dull!"

With love
