Those who appreciate life tend to live longer and have richer experiences and memories than those who take life for granted and do not live each day to the fullest. Prosperity comes easiest when every possible opportunity is examined and considered. Life is fleeting and should never be assumed because it can end at any time. Take time out to smell the flowers or enjoy a meal, spend time with good friends and beloved family. Never be so rushed that you can not see the wonder in a sunrise or understand the joy an infant wakes to the world with. Children tend to appreciate life the most and they view the world with wonder and awe. As we age we lose this ability and life becomes a struggle for many. When you appreciate life humility is an important lesson. Make your life count and strive to reach your dreams and goals. You only get one life so give it everything you have and appreciate each day like it is the last one you will get.
