Living life to the fullest….

Don’t you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you’re not taking advantage of it? Do you realize you’ve lived nearly half the time you have to live already?
~Ernest Hemingway~

I am sitting here absolutely exhausted but unable to get to sleep. I don’t know what it is about being away from home and family, but I just can never relax enough to get proper rest. This always happens when I am staying overnight at a hotel but I am at my mum’s and still can not settle! It may just be me…..in fact it must just be me.

Tonight we have been reminiscing about our lives- living in Africa, Yugoslavia and all the ridiculous moments that got us to this point in time. We had a good laugh which is what probably wore me out. When thinking back over the years it makes you realise how much happens and how much can change in such a short amount of time. In the grand scheme of things, our lives must be just a tiny portion…..a speck….

This is why each moment that we have must be cherished…..instead of complaining, we should be counting our blessings……instead of worrying about what we don’t have, we should be thankful for all that we do have.

It is about using our time wisely – about reassessing what is most important.

It is time to start living life to the fullest….how will you spend your time today?
