Life Is Shorter Than  You Think: 5 Ways to Live It Well (Start Today)!

Life is short, often much shorter than we mean it to be. How do we live in a way that we know we are doing it well? Maybe we can start with this: 

  • Eat the ice cream, enjoy the pizza. 
  • Let it go. Not ready to? Do it anyway. 
  • Use the fancy china, buy the boots. 
  • Dance even when people are watching (bonus points if you twirl!). 
  • Laugh until your cheeks hurt all of the time

Live in a way that when time runs out, you are all good with it.  I try hard to appreciate my health and my living, so when it gets hard I know I did it well. Live it well.

So true Erin Musto ! Welcome to this awesome group! I love one about laughing and using the china! Too often we keep the nice things for those special occasions and really everyday should be seen as a special occasion!

I love people who can live in the moment and enjoy life! It is way to precious to take for granted though my husband and kids would prefer if I don't dance in public. Of course I do it anyway!
Great tips Erin, I will try to use these more!0
