I am a firm believer that people should try to make the most out of each
day that they are alive. We all have to die at some point and even though
this may seem a little morbid it is true. Today or tomorrow could be our
last day and therefore this is why we should be living each day to the
full.

Article Body:
I am a firm believer that people should try to make the most out of each
day that they are alive. We all have to die at some point and even though
this may seem a little morbid it is true. Today or tomorrow could be our
last day and therefore this is why we should be living each day to the
full.

Each day I read and watch the local and international news stories which
make me aware of some very sad events. People who are very young are
dying each day in a variety of different circumstances and I am very much
aware that I am not immune from one of these tragic events. No one can
say for sure that they are going to live until lets say seventy years of
age, most people I think presume that they will, which could be seen in
some quarters as a good thing. Thinking positive they say is the right
way to think, which I have to admit is something I also agree with.

My attitude is that I need to work to live where as other people seem to
live to work. It is like they would rather be at work than at home having
fun or spending time with their family. I know a number of people who
have young children but who leave their house at around half six in the
morning and do not return home until seven at night. This is not because
they are poor but because they will take on any extra hours as way as
overtime that is offered to them. I personally would rather spend time
with my children than be stuck at work and feel that my life is enriched
in this way.

When I am on my death bed in what I hope will not be for a long time yet
of course, I want to be able to think and say to myself that I have no
regrets and that I am happy with the way I have lived my life. At the
moment I am lucky as I am able to watch my children grow and mature as
people. From the work that I do, I am able to take my family on holiday
each year and can afford to pay all of my bills. Some no doubt might say
that I should work a lot more hours than I do, I would then be able to
buy a better car and would be able to take my family on two holidays per
year. What I would say in response to this however, is at what price
would I be able to obtain this? I would have to sacrifice much of the
quality time I have with my children, would not be able to take them
swimming and to the park as often as I do for example. I hope and think
that my children are very happy at the moment and this in my opinion is
priceless. I will not compromise this in search for a better standard of
car etc.

I used to constantly worry about what might happen to me in three or six
months time. Will this or that happen? If it does how would I be able to
cope? I am of course worrying in these situations about things that have
not even and may never happen. This I have now realised is pointless and
even very silly. I should be living for today, I should be making the
most of today, I will think about tomorrow, tomorrow. I will deal with
any problems that come my way in the best way that I can at the time when
they happen, that is all I can do. By stressing about them before they
happen will only stop me from enjoying myself on that particular day.

Now is the time to stop the stress, worry, fear and depression. There is
a good chance that we only have one life, so lets enjoy it.
