“One life on this earth is all that we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be that at the very least we are fools if we do not live it as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.” ~ Frederick Buechner

One Life On This Earth

Life is too short to hold back
For one life on earth is all we get
So let’s live fully, bravely and beautifully
Remember to:
Always be yourself
Be bold
Create every day
Dive headlong into your hobbies
Engage with people meaningfully
Forgive and move forward
Give generously
Have one belly laugh a day
Inspire at least one person in your lifetime
Join your hands in prayer
Keep focused on positives
Love and let yourself be loved
Make memories that last
Nourish your spirit
Open yourself to new experiences
Pause, ponder, persevere
Question your motives
Remember to be grateful
Seek kindred spirits
Trust in the Universe.

Today I’m trying my hand at Finish The Sentence Friday with the prompt ‘Life Is Too Short’ and also doing Five Minute Friday with the prompt ‘hold’.

Here are some meaningful quotes on life:

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
― Mae West

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
― Albert Einstein

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
― Mark Twain

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
― Albert Einstein

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
― George Bernard Shaw

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
