Keeping a journal has been a habit of mine for many years. This year, my journal has “Live ~ Laugh ~ Love” printed on the cover, and those words became the theme for this week’s post. When looking for an image to accompany my thoughts, I found several that said,
“Live every moment. Laugh every day. Love beyond words.”
Great advice! But then I found the image you see in this post and loved it even more. Many philosophers, authors and songwriters advise us to “live in the moment” … “be here now” and “live like you were dying.”
Right NOW, you are the oldest you’ve ever been and the youngest you’ll ever be again.
I don’t know about you, but that very profound thought had never really hit me before.
As we advance in years, we may become more cautious … do fewer spontaneous things … and generally take life more seriously. However,
Living, Loving, & Laughing
is not reserved for any particular stage in life. Men and women of all ages can find themselves suddenly single. It’s common for those in their 20’s and 30’s to readily go to Match.com, eHarmony or some other dating site to find their next special someone – and for a good reason. Having somebody to love and laugh with can make living more fun no matter how old you are. Now there are websites like EliteSingles, OurTime, and SeniorPeopleMeet that cater to the older crowd.
“Live ~ Laugh ~ Love” is a great motto by which to live your life, and it makes no difference if you’re 18 or 108.
