Everyday In Our Life Is A Special Occasion

Never save something for a special occasion.
Every day in your life is a special occasion.

Those words changed my life. Now I live and breathe and have my being without worrying about anything. I spend more time with my family, and less at work. I understood that life is a source of experience to be lived up to, and not survived through. I no longer keep anything for a special occasion. I will wear new clothes to the supermarket. I will drive new car and own new house. I will use my special perfume whenever I want to. The words "someday..." and "one day..." are fading away from my dictionary. If it is worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now.

Franking speaking, I don't know what I would have done if I knew I wouldn't be around the next day.

I think I might have called all my friends and relatives to make peace over past quarrels and to share things that we don't usually speak. I would go out for my favorite food and visit some beautiful places. I would write letters or send e-mails to those that I promised to write "one of these days". I would say to my family members and my loved ones now, how much I love them.

I make it a rule not to delay, postpone or keep anything that could bring laughter, joy and happiness into our lives.

Now, every morning, I say to myself that this could be a special day.
Each day, each hour, each minute, is special to me...and especially for you.
