Live Your Life Now

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs

How do you feel about your life today? Are you living every day in exuberance? Do you love what you’re doing? Are you excited every single moment? Are you looking forward to what’s coming up next? Are you living your best life?

Your life experience is up to you to create. Why settle for anything less than what you can get? You deserve nothing but the best.
Life is too short to be wasted away, sitting in a corner with a bag of Doritos and a bottle of Mountain Dew, watching movies and playing games all day long.
Get the fuck up! Move your ass. Do whatever YOU want to. Stop thinking about the consequences, unless it’s a major decision :P.
Stop thinking about what people think of  you. Do whatever makes YOU happy.

"You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough."

Here are a few tips to help you live your life to the fullest.

Live every day on a fresh new start.
Don’t be held back by what happened yesterday, the day before, the week before, the year before, and so on.

Be true to who you are.
Stop trying to please other people or be someone else. It’s better to be an original version of yourself than an exact duplicate of someone else.

Focus on WHAT vs. How.
Focus on WHAT you want first, before you think about HOW to do it. Anything is possible, as long as you set your mind, heart and soul to it.

Stop putting your life on hold.
Been wanting to do something for too long, but you keep avoiding it? Go Bunjee jumping? Tell that person that you love them? Just go out and have fun? Stop everything else, and go do it. NOW.

Do the things you love.
Because life is too precious to spend it doing anything else. If you don’t enjoy something, then don’t do it. Spend your time and energy on things that bring you fulfillment and happiness.

Be positive.
Is the glass half empty or half full? How about neither? It’s actually all-full – the bottom half is water, the top half is air. It’s all a matter of perception. Take on empowering perceptions, not those that bind you. If you can see the positive sides of everything, you’ll be able to live a much richer life than others. Purge unnecessary negativity from your life.

Let go of relationships that do not serve you.
That means negative people, dishonest people, people who don’t respect you, people are overly critical and relationships that prevent you from growing.

Connect with an old friend.
There is no end to the number of friends you can have. Reach out to people from the past.

Do a kind deed a day.
What is something you can do today that will make the world a better place? Go and do it.

Fall in Love. Forget about tomorrow. Live your life now. Live it for yourself. Overcome procrastination. Relish the little moments of life and Bask in their glory. Laugh more. Embrace change. Embrace disappointments. Love yourself. Love others. Love life itself. Savor food. Take chances. Who knows when you might get them next? Turn off the TV, pull away from the internet and travel :D.

Break out from your daily routine. Do something different for a change.

Basically, life is too short to be wasted on the wrong people. Thinking about what people think of you. Trying to be that perfect someone who doesn’t even care. Delaying decisions.

Go out! Take risks. Shout out your secrets. Stop caring about others. Do what YOU love.

"Carpe Diem"

There are implications to everything, so do what you want to do but at the same time realize that you must do what's good for you... ;)

I LOVE the post and a lot of little nuggets in there inspired me all over again.
