Cat Dress Up

On Saturday night I went out and danced all night long until my feet hurt.

I haven’t done that in a while.

But damn it felt good.

I think sometimes we can take life too seriously.

Sometimes we get caught up in the routine of life and serious things like paying the bills and going to work and being responsible.

Sometimes we forget one thing:

Life is for living!

When you’re too busy looking forward towards goals or looking backwards at the things that went wrong, you can miss the moment, and ultimately miss life.

We all live busy lives. We all have responsibilities to meet, but I believe it’s dangerous to live life too seriously.

Because you know what?

You only get one life.

This is it.

Right now.

Right here.

This moment.

So don’t be sitting around getting bogged down by the serious things, get out there and have some fun.

All those things that you never have time to do that you always wanted to do?

Now is the time to make it happen.

Not tomorrow or the next day or next week or when you get time.
