This particular quote by William W. Purkey (pictured) is my mantra.
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
For most people, it’s something that you may learn later in life, when you’re in your 30s and 40s or unfortunately, later. But don’t wait that long. Learn to live now! Dying to go on a cruise to the Caribbean? Do it. Besides, paying for it, what else should hold you back?
My sisters (I have two) and I are planning a trip to Italy next year. I’m so excited because 1) this will be our first true “sisters” trip, and 2) it’s Italy!
Not only will we see the beautiful sights, (men, included and they’re at the top of my list. Hey, I write romance, okay?) drink wine, and indulge in great food, but this will be research! My mind is filling with all kinds of stories and plots for a new book (or two), and I haven’t even arrived yet. However, planning the trip is just as much fun because I’m doing it with my sisters.
No matter how old you are, 10, 15, or 25. Enjoy life each and every day because it’s too short to be a wallflower. Go dance.
