I don’t live dangerously, but I do LIVE.

I love life. I love it even when it royally sucks.

Each day, each fleeting moment, is a gift.

When I am down, when I wake up and can’t find the will to get out of bed, I do it anyway.

When I am faced with a decision that I don’t want to make, I make it anyway.

When I am afraid, I do it anyway.

I take chances – not dangerous ones, mind you – but I take them.

I strive to be better: to live better, to be happier, to love and be loved, to share good fortune.

We are only given one opportunity to live our lives, so we might as well enjoy it.

I think that this inspiring life quote by Thoreau says it all.

After a trying few months of losing one family member after another, watching as people I love lose their loved ones….I am reminded – now more than ever – to LIVE MY LIFE.

I’m a big fan of quotes that inspire me…and Thoreau is one of my favorite authors.

    I love the Thoreau quote! My daughters definitely inspire me in everything I do. They encourage me to stop and smell the roses, bask in the sunshine, dance in the rain, and live my life to the fullest. I can’t be everything to everyone but I’m a mom to two special girls!

    I love Thoreau too. He is so simply stated but what he says really resonates. I love that you are a risk taker, I need more of that in my life.

    I love this post! I need to bookmark it and come back to it when I’m having a rough day and need some inspiration. I definitely live my life, but there are days when I get caught up in the nonsense and stress and forget about the big picture.

    Great quote! It’s sometimes easy to get wrapped up in other things that are not worth it and it derails you from just living the way you want to live!

    I know how that feels to keep losing people you love. Authors who inspire me are Zora Neale Hurston, Maya Angelou, and Rudyard Kipling to name a few. My fav poem I think is If by Rudyard Kipling.
