When Should I Enjoy?

Today we have bigger houses and smaller families.

More conveniences, but less time.

 

We have more degrees, but less common sense.

More knowledge, but less judgment.

 

We have more experts, but more problems.

More medicine, but less wellness.

 

We spend too recklessly;

Laugh too little,

Drive too fast,

Get too angry too quickly,

Stay up too late,

Read too little,

Watch TV too much,

And pray too seldom!

 

We’ve multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too little, and lie too often.

 

More leisure and less fun;

More kinds of foods, but less nutrition.

Two incomes, but more divorces.

Fancier houses, but broken homes.

 

That’s why I propose, that as of today,

you don’t keep anything for special occasions,

because every day you live is a special occasion.

Search for knowledge.

 

Read more.

Spend more time with your family and friends.

Pray more often to God.

 

Life is a chain of moments of enjoyment,

not only about survival.

Use your crystal goblets. Don’t save your best perfume,

use it every time you feel you want it.

 

Remove from your vocabulary

phrases like ‘one of these days’ and ‘someday’.

 

Don’t delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life.

Every day, every hour, and every minute is special.

 

You never know when it will be your last.

    Common sense is what we are losing the most these days. The “pray God” part, i’ll let it for the believers, but the whole rest is so true.
    Peace.

    Truth reflects in each and every sentence of the article. woww….

    But i know one think for sure, that tomorrow is My(our) last day (it can be next hour or next minute also ) that is the reason i try to live my life every second n u know what, I succeed.
    God is so merciful that he gives me(us) bonus 1 day daily. That is how life is going on . N that is how it will be. Once the bonus is stopped everything will be stopped.
    So dear all LIVE LIFE AS IF U WILL NOT BE HERE TOMORROW. 🙂
