If there’s one mantra I live by, it’s this one:
LIFE IS SHORT. COLLECT EXPERIENCES.
Life moves fast. There’s so much going on each day that it’s easy for moments to just blend into each other, one after the other after the other. Sometimes I feel like I live in a perpetual state of hurry, without time to breathe and savor small perfect moments hidden in every day life.
I say my mantra to myself to remind me to focus on what’s important — experiencing as much as possible, in every small and huge way. An experience could be playing a game with my daughter before bed or it could be something more special, like visiting a new place. But to collect it you have to be present in it or it will rush right by.
What experiences will you collect today?
