"In The End, It's Not The Years In Your Life That Count, It's The Life In Your Years" An Abraham Lincoln Quote by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
I would take a guess that we have all heard the phrase Carpe Diem or "Seize the Day" in our lifetimes. It's a simple philosophy but one that basically says another well-known phrase "live each day like it's your last." It's easy to not think much into those words and not take them to heart, since we know not every single day can be full of adventure (unless your funds & time is unlimited). In time, the idea just fades into the background rather than becoming a way of life.
I think that this quote by Abraham Lincoln helps keep that from happening while setting a more realistic way of looking at how to live life. Even if every day can't be you facing a new frontier, making a year be memorable isn't as hard, especially as we get older. It feels like with time, the idea of doing things for yourself is much easier to implement. You've paid your dues of putting others first, now it's YOUR time to shine. Now it's your time to pay attention to the clay mold of your life and shape it further. Making each year have something special can mean going on a long vacation, or to a place you've never been. It could be trying something new (remember: we are never too old for that), it could be changing your style or getting a pet. The possibilities are endless, and that's what so great about it. Inject some life in to your years, and you'll find yourself much happier!
