"I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. "
~E. B. White

 My new watch by Artnow314

Over the long holiday weekend, I was out shopping with my wife when I came across a print that I thought was worth sharing. The text is below.

Here's to a life worth living!
This is your life. Find a passion and pursue it. Fall in love. Dream Big. Eat great food and spend quality time with good friends. Laugh everyday. Believe in magic. Tell stories. Reminisce about the good old days but look with optimism to the future. Travel often. Learn more. Be creative. Spend time with people you admire. Seize opportunities when they reveal themselves. Love with all your heart. Never give up. Do what you love. Be true to who you are. Make time to enjoy the simple things in life. Spend time with family. Forgive even when it's hard. Smile often. Be grateful. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Follow your dreams. Try new things. Work hard. Don't count the minutes, count the laughs. Embrace change. Trust in yourself. Be thankful. Be nice to everyone. Be happy. Live for today. And above all...make every moment count.
QUESTION: What would you add to the list? Please post comments below.

What a great way to start my day! Thanks for posting this gem. The opening quote is interesting. I would add that if we find the things we would do to improve the world are ALSO the things we would do to enjoy the world, then our day becomes easy to plan.

I would change 'Believe in magic' to 'Believe in God and the power of the gospel."
