Today we have bigger houses and smaller families.
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less common sense.
More knowledge, but less judgment.
We have more experts, but more problems.
More medicine, but less wellness.
We spend too recklessly;
Laugh too little,
Drive too fast,
Get too angry too quickly,
Stay up too late,
Read too little,
Watch TV too much,
And pray too seldom!
We’ve multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too little, and lie too often.
More leisure and less fun;
More kinds of foods, but less nutrition.
Two incomes, but more divorces.
Fancier houses, but broken homes.
That’s why I propose, that as of today,
you don’t keep anything for special occasions,
because every day you live is a special occasion.
Search for knowledge.
Sit on your front porch and admire the
view without paying attention to your needs.
Spend more time with your family and friends.
Eat your favorite foods and visit the places you love.
Life is a chain of moments of enjoyment,
not only about survival.
Use your crystal goblets. Don’t save your best perfume,
use it every time you feel you want it.
Remove from your vocabulary
phrases like “one of these days“ and “someday”.
Write that letter you’ve thought about writing.
Don’t delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life.
Every day, every hour, and every minute is special.
You never know when it will be your last.
