How to Live Life to the Fullest

Grab hold of each day. Live each day as if it's your last (Please don’t drive as though it’s your last day). Leave the past behind and do not anticipate the future. Be present to enjoy the moment…the little pleasures of life.

Be adventurous. Explore, live on the edge a little and embrace new challenges. Visit new places (it could be the club house of your apartment, the terrace…etc) with your loved ones. Take the road less traveled or at least try to explore one.

Keep a journal. Record your accomplishments (self assessment) as well as your delights. Take time to reflect on what has been previously written. Be an inspiration to yourself and others.

Love yourself. Focus on your inner and outer beauty to see the same in others. Acceptance comes from within.

Love everyone. Love the ones who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don't. Life is too precious to be wasted on waiting for love.

Accept everyone. Be kind and courteous (at least try to be). Enjoy the company of others. Acknowledge their goodness rather than the differences in their beliefs (no catholic – protestant cat fight).

Find purpose in life. Be selfless in service to others. Begin this at your home then your neighbor. Do charitable service, live and help people live.

Be realistic. Set attainable goals (use of appropriate talent management software isn’t all…lol) according to your abilities and talents. Consider each effort to be an attainment. Achieve one step before the other towards stability and security.

Seek balance. Understand the night and day, back and forth, good and bad in all things. Focus on good thoughts and good things will happen.

Maintain control. Be responsible for your actions and inaction. Be true to yourself. Maintain a personal code in the situation at hand (especially when you are on the road). Find common ground.

Listen to your heart and soul. Listen for advice, but be confident in making your own decision. Use your instinct.

Clear your mind. A good message at the beginning of the day, a nice sweet prayer…rejuvenates your soul to focus more clearly on serenity and happiness.

Be carefree. Desires, obsessions and possessions possess you. Free yourself of inhibitions. Make an active decision to have simple daily needs.

Laugh. Laughter is the best medicine. It releases endorphins and promotes longevity. Inner joy is beautiful!

Be flexible. Accept change as a positive thing in life. At times, go with the flow that is before you.

List a few daily goals. Meet a new friend if possible, swim at the pool or walk in the park. Enhance your day and initiate fun!

Appreciate the little things. Take a walk around your community to experience the wonder in a way that you have never experienced it before.

Forgive yourself and others. Release your negative energy that holds you back, your past failures, embrace whatever life offers you.

Anticipate next day. Every day is unique, like the blossoming clouds. It’s never the same, but always beautiful.

Accept death. Pondering death brings appreciation to life. Take time to appreciate the expanse and beauty of your life and our earth. Let go peacefully.
