DO NOW WHAT YOU DREAMT TO DO


Sun Dance

Life is but a vapor
Here, then gone
These are not sad words
These are real words
Our life is given as a gift
Moments in our existence pass
So quickly before our eyes
Life as we know it, is so, so short

Don’t wait –
Do now what you dreamt to do
Try what you were afraid to try
Step out and grab a hold of life
Live with no regrets

Laugh often, smile a lot
Make it a habit to give hugs
Love intensely
Love like there is no tomorrow
Give from your heart freely
Share hope, give joy
Encourage, and lift up the brokenhearted
Listen, understand, be gracious
Sing in the shower, loudly
Crack a joke, then laugh at yourself
Cry with a friend
Hold someone’s hand

Do now what you dreamt to do
Try what you were afraid to try
Step out and grab a hold of life
Breathe –
Take time to stop and inhale spring
Summer, fall and winter
Smell the changes in the air
Watch a bird in flight
Get lost in the splendor of color
As the sun rises in the morning
Be captivated by the beauty of the water
As the rays of the sun dance upon it
Look up and take notice
Of the pureness of the blue in a summer sky
How the stars sparkle
Against the velvet blackness of night
The sweetness of a baby’s laughter
The aroma of home baked cookies
How it feels to be with family
Embrace life
Notice the small things that surround you
For simple joys are our greatest pleasures
But most of all be thankful
God created life to be savored
He gave it to us as a gift
To be unwrapped and enjoyed
Relish every moment
Of the life He gave you
Live it to the full
For life is but a vapor
Here, then gone
