Life isn't just to be endured, it's to be enjoyed.

“I get it now; I didn't get it then. That life is about losing and about doing it as gracefully as possible...and enjoying everything in between.” ~ Mia Farrow It seems apparent that I might have been a little harsh on myself over the last couple of days, its been a while since I can sincerely say my smile has emerged spontaneously, so this morning I decided that enough Endurance . . its time to Enjoy! “Life isn't just to be endured, it's to be enjoyed.” ~ Gordon B.Hinckley Voting went well and noting untoward happened in our ward, city, province and while the ballots are being counted, noting has changed within the country. All still peaceful for now, and we dont expect any change. “Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight.” ~ Gordon B. Hinckley We had a little social bowling as well in the mid day freezing wind, which left me with terrible pain in my face. The neuralgia is not easy to ward off with cold and wind. True to fame my wonderful search tool has delivered some great QUOTES that I can share with you today. Please enjoy each one for the inspiration they give. “Enjoy life. There's plenty of time to be dead.” ~ Hans Christian Andersen Happy Day everyone. photo - Me

You should take up ten-pin bowling. You do that indoors!! It's easy to get bogged down in the dreary detail of life and forget to be happy every now and then. I'm going through a bit of a stressful time on a number of fronts and sort of withdrew from interaction. As soon as I got back on here I felt so much better. The problems haven't gone away but I feel better about tackling them.

I can ten pin bowl - but its not half as much fun as lawn bowling. I understand where you are coming from - A problem shared is HALVED and so many have given caring here, I hope to be more on the spot

Oh, I like to enjoy my life each and every single day. I have learned a long time ago that I should love myself more and do what I love rather than do what pleases other people. In the past, I was so concerned of other's happiness and satisfaction that I have neglected my own. But now, i am only thinking about my life and how to enjoy it before I expire from this world.

Its taken me a long time but I'm getting there too - I was always the peacekeeper, one to call on and one who would help anyone out, but that came with pain and my unhappiness, no more! ;)

Where was this photo taken? There are a lot of ships in the background. Are they lying in the roads?

That is a great choice of words :D We do often forget that life is about also having fun, I need to remember that.

Ahhh - you have different losses to me, so I do apologise if you found that quote a little inappropriate. But one has to try and make the inbetween parts of life bearable

@Inlemay What? You think 'life is about losing'?? NO,NO! We all have losses in life, but they are only part of it - we pick ourselves up and make the most of the rest of it.

@jaboUK I think there are times when life has shown me how I have lost . . . . and in order for me to stay within LIFE in its whole entity - I have changed direction to Live - am I understanding this incorrect or does Mia Farrow have it wrong?

I guess what gets me down is that most people don't seems to care, even people who should

Your quotes and positive attitude is just what I needed today. I've been feeling as if my life has been fading away lately and I need to recapture it before it's too late. Love your picture!!

Love the Anderson quote! My in-laws seem to always look for the negative. I've told my kids that if I ever start talking g that way that they are permitted to give me a good swift kick in the rear!
