ENJOYING LIFE...............


 "I FINALLY FIGURED OUT THE ONLY REASON TO BE ALIVE IS TO ENJOY IT"
Rita Mae Brown


SOMETIMES ENJOYING LIFE IS DIFFICULT......BECAUSE LIFE CAN BE DIFFICULT!

However.....If I can learn to discern between what is truly important and what is just peripheral ..... I can remain truly joyful.


ENJOYING LIFE IS NOT ABOUT BEING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

ENJOYING LIFE IS NOT ABOUT HAVING A LOT OF MONEY

IT IS NOT ABOUT BEING THE MOST CREATIVE OR THE MOST CLEVER


Enjoying life is about paying attention and doing the best with what we have....where we are.

It is about the healthy food we eat


it is about the people we love



IT IS ABOUT SEEING THE BEAUTY IN ALL THE THINGS GOD HAS GIVEN US.


Remember "God creates.....people rearrange".

I do hope I enjoy my life today to the utmost!!!!

Hugs dear friends.

  8. Agreed! Life is meant to be savored, not rushed through or despaired-but meant to be enjoyed-the good, the bad...all of it!!

  11. I hope you did, too!!!
    You are so right, enjoying
    life is 99 percent attitude.
    Some days we have to readjust : )
    Some days are just more
    enjoyable than others! But
    it's always about how we
    respond to what comes down
    the pike!
