Friday Frills



Each day we can wake up and choose to see life as a gift and to be fully present in that day. 
We cannot always control the outcome, but we can control our reactions.

Each day we can bring all that we have to that day, choosing to live it fully, 
Seeing it as a great gift.

Each day we can train our mind not to obsess about regret, 
Nor to worry for tomorrow, but instead to be in this present moment.

Each day we can be grateful for what has happened that day. 
And we can choose not to judge our lives from moment to moment 
(am I happy, successful, unhappy, a failure, good, bad)
But simply just to live our life.

There are five secrets in achieving the best life has to offer...
Be true to yourself.
Leave no regrets.
Become love.
Live in the moment.
Give more than you take.

HI Sam! These words are so beautiful and true. Even though, is always easier to say and to do, I believe that everyday is a gift to not take for granted but instead to live fully and happily. Those 5 "secrets" are perfect to achieve the best not only from everyday but from the whole life. The hard thing is just to keep it on mind :)
Hope your weekend is started at the best dear, happy Friday! xo
