Time to live

As you go through your life, take the time to live. Take time to appreciate and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you, to make a difference, to do something that you truly care about.

Take the time to know your passion, to follow your purpose, to do something more than simply get through the day. Take time to lift up another, to really listen, to truly care.

Take time to seek out the real joys of being alive and aware, of being a unique person with a special purpose. Take time to genuinely give of yourself, for that is the best gift you can offer.

The time you take to really live is time you will always treasure, and creates value that will always stay with you. The more often you remember what a special and irreplaceable gift it is to be alive, the more you’ll have to offer to the lives of those around you.

This very day is your time to live, and it is here for you to experience. Whatever your situation, whatever challenges you face, however busy your schedule may be, there is always so much value in taking the time to really live.

— Ralph Marston
