"Wake up with a smile and go after life. Live it, enjoy it, taste it, smell it, feel it."
Hip and happening catchphrases tend to come and go. Cool one minute, lukewarm a few moments later. One such slogan is the expression 'get a life.' If you're like the majority of us, you've probably heard this quirky saying one too many times.
While the term is generally used as some sort of intentional jab or dig, trying to get under someone else's skin, the concept of getting a life does have a great deal of merit. Especially when you're talking about getting a life that's actually worth getting.
"Is the life I'm living the life that wants to live in me?"
Truth be told, we oftentimes do just about everything but pursue the life we truly desire. Instead of chasing our dreams, we invariably end up on the wrong end of the stick, nowhere close to living the life we desperately want to live.
We want to do better; a lot better. In fact, we really, really NEED to do a lot better. But on many occasions we don't - and it frustrates us no end. Why are we unable to get where we want to go, to do the things we want to do, to live the life we've always dreamed of living?
"Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why."
One of the primary reasons we consistently fail to fulfill our dreams is our propensity to rush and hurry all day long. We are so busy trying to make a living that each day blurs into another. Before we know it, days have turned into weeks, months and years. When it's all said and done, the life we could have and should have lived is little more than a fading image in our rear view mirror.
In our haste to make things happen, we sometimes forget to get a life in the process. Not just a life, but the life we want to live, THE life we NEED to live. The life we were born to LIVE every minute of every day.
"The purpose of life is to matter, to be productive, to have it make some difference that you lived at all. Happiness, in the ancient, noble sense, means self-fulfillment - and is given to those who use to the fullest whatever talents God or luck or fate bestowed upon them."
Leo Calvin Rosten
You know where you want to go in life, don't you? And if not, all you need to do is listen to your heart and follow its lead. Each of us possesses something special within us that make us who we are. And it's that special something that can make our lives something super special if we give it half a chance.
You've got to give it that chance. And that means doing your own thing - whatever that may happen to be.
Rather than allowing even one more day to needlessly slip away, isn't it about time that you got the life you want right now? You bet your bottom dollar it is! Instead of chasing your tail, isn't it high time that you began pursuing your dreams with every ounce of strength and energy you can muster - giving life your very best shot?
Ready to get a life? Then get busy doing those things you love to do - and you'll start loving the life you live.
The Bottom Line: When you 'get a life' worth living, you're going to be set for life.
