YOLO...Make Each Day A Masterpiece!
A new year and a chance for a new beginning. I am sure you are wondering what in the world my post title means. Last week I watched Katie Couric's television show. She used the term YOLO, which means you only live once. We all know that but sometimes fail to make the most of every moment. This year I am making a vow to remember this each and every day. To awaken each morning with a positive attitude and a smile on my face.
Yes I know that some days will be harder than others. Just today I told a friend that life is just like a roller coaster....up and down and round and round. There are things that happen that "knock the wind out of my sails". I just have to keep going! Even great painters have to wipe the slate clean and start over again....and sometimes a masterpiece appears!
My daughter gave me a plaque this Christmas that contained a wonderful quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. "Do one thing every day that scares you." Sounds like a resolution to me!
I know that many people don't like to make New Year's Resolutions. Many times we make them only to fail in just a week or two. Well I have two big resolutions this year. I am going to remember that "you only live once" and because of that I am going to make each moment a masterpiece. My second resolution is to try to follow Eleanor's advice and "do one thing each day that scares me". In other words I will get out of my comfort zone, close my eyes, and jump right in!
How about you? Have you made any resolutions? I would love to hear about them! Remember YOLO.....jump into the New Year with me. Let's make this a year to remember!
