“Life is short. Don’t take it for granted.”
This is a phrase we hear a lot, but do we really listen? I think we tend to forget how short life really is, as we often get caught up in the grind of our daily lives. We feel that we need to hustle to be successful in life, but it is also important to appreciate life, and “stop and smell the roses.” What it comes down to, is balance.
Enjoy your career, but also make time for your family. Take a moment each day to enjoy life’s experiences and enjoy the company of others. Take chances and give your life meaning. Make every moment count, so that one day you can look back and say “I lived a good life and it was worth it.” Finding a balance will allow you to enjoy life, so when you take your last breath on this Earth, you can feel a sense of completeness for the life you lived. Don’t rush through life my friend, enjoy the whole ride. ~Kurt
