A Simple Thought for the Day

Though the following advice was given to writers, it is, in fact, advice we all should take.

“The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.” – -William Saroyan

I love this advice! A simple reminder in being mindful in all we do.

Live and be alive,
While you can.
Experience life,
A crisp summer morning,
The sweet, sour, and bitter of each bite of food.
Feel sand upon a beach,
Dew on your cheeks.
Memorize the details
Of everything you do.
Remember where you are.
Be mindful,
Be complete.
And when they day is over,
Sleep full and deep.
And be alive.
