I have a bumper sticker hanging from a magnet on my front door:
When I first got it (at a Green Festival booth) it so simply spoke to me that I was not living a life I loved -- I was half-living a life I took for granted. I'm working on improving my status, but I just wanted to share this little tidbit. I think the sooner you
live a live you love and love the life you live,
the sooner you can actually savor all that is going on
-- experiences, friendships, and even food.
