Day 117 - Saturday 26th April

“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.” - Mary Anne Radmacher - author

Well this prompt is pretty comprehensive isn’t it? I take it to mean live life to the full and be happy with what you have, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot strive to be or have more. Learn what you can from your life experiences. Always be kind and caring and look after the people around you as they are very precious.

I think this is very true. I think I more or less live my life in this way. I have my dreams and aspirations which one day I hope will come true and I work hard towards achieving them. I think I am a good friend and would always drop anything to make sure I could help out a friend in need. I am not sure I play with abandon but I will always put 100% effort into anything I undertake but sometimes I do fail.

I love to laugh. To me laughter is like a medicine and will always make me feel better. It is important to enjoy what you do otherwise what is the point in doing it?

You must get on and make the most of what you have and not waste time worrying about what you haven’t got, otherwise you are only losing out on precious time that can never be got back. We have a lot to be thankful for and so make the most of it.

This photo is a cheat - it was taken at a friend's wedding last September
