What great Monday morning inspiration!

I agree with Carrie-just live and be happy. As I have gotten older all I really want is happiness for me and my family. Tomorrow is not guaranteed so I try and live every day to the fullest. And quotes like this remind me to do so even more!

Live forward and be positive! If you're going to look back, make sure you remember happy thoughts and not regrets. :)

PS: A Mighty Wind is a neat movie. It's one of the first few movies made in the mockumentary style.

I keep doing what I plan, so it changes all the time. Most of the time I don't even plan it, I just do it as the idea inspires me.

Reina said...

yes, what to do with the 86 years i wish to live ???

wow. just thinking about that. DUDE i could live in 3 effing centuries. holy crap.
okay. thats what i plan to do. how FREAKING awsome would that be???? whooohooo for being healthy!!! ( i guess the ice cream im eating right now wont really help ;P )

well, anyways, i plan to SEE THE WORLD. thats my number one hope. people who dont see the world are literally living in a box. And there is SO MUCH diversity on the earth, how could they not want to see the world????

i would love to own my own business someday. Even owning my own coffee shop or bookstore would be awsome. i'd LOVE own my own architectural firm in New Zealand. that'd be ideal.

so many amazing plots for books run through my head. writing a book would be a fantastic accomplishment.

i want to help people. its something that makes you feel so good. its beneficial all around.

this next thing i want to do with my one wild and precious life is my number one priority and i'd tell you this anyday you'd ask -- it would be that i would want everyone on this earth to be completely happy for the rest of their lives.
just imagine a world of happy people. that would be the day.

comment #51 ;D

okay, im going to now read other people's plans for live as you suggested in the latest post

Indigo said...

Annie said...

Great quote.. definitely has me thinking :)

Catita said...

woow too many things I guess, but first wish me health and I'll conquer the world! And after ill live happily ever after with my bf, kids, my gazillion purses, 5 dogs and love for people and reaching out to them!

Marcie said...

OK, I LOVE THIS!! It totally makes you reflect and think, something I've been doing a lot lately.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

I like that quote, although they used to use it on a career workshop advertisement in Vancouver, which soured me on it somewhat. As for what to do, well, I should probably start by getting off the internet... you? ; )

Amy said...
