There is a famous poem about forgetting to live your life to the fullest.
First I was dying to finish high school and start college.
And then I was dying to finish college and start working.
And then I was dying to marry and have children.
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough
for school so I could return to work.
And then I was dying to retire.
And now, I am dying… and suddenly I realize I forgot to live.
I have this poem posted on the mirror of my vanity. It is a reminder for me not to wish my life away. For this New Year set a few goals and schedule some fun activities in 2014. Live life and don’t have regrets like the person who wrote this poem.
Happy New Year!
Live, laugh, dream, and love to the fullest!
The New Year is upon us. WOW! 2013 has gone by fast. Now let’s look back on 2013.
Did you accomplish your goals?
Did you accomplish at least one of your goals?
If you did that is wonderful!
If you didn’t what was the reason?
Why are goals so important? I believe goals are very important to help people feel alive and not just going through the motions. Once you have reached a goal you feel excited and happy that you did it! Celebrating is an important aspect after you achieved the goal. Did you celebrate? If you didn’t, now is the time to start.
I believe people who don’t have goals become complacent and unhappy with their lives. Sometimes they become negative and mean to others. They are so unhappy and try to make everyone around them feel miserable as well. People without goals have nothing to look forward to in life.
With the New Year upon us it is time to sit down and write down some goals.
What are your goals for 2014?
Your goals don’t have to be big. Just start with some little goals to accomplish for next year. Once you have accomplished one goal work on the next. Make sure you do something to celebrate after you have achieved each goal. To celebrate it doesn’t have to be something fancy. It could be buying yourself your favorite cup of coffee or tea or going out to lunch with a friend. Whatever feels special to you?
My wish for you in 2014 is to live, laugh, dream, and love to the fullest!
