Slow Down, Celebrate Life, and Enjoy the Moment

Life is a journey that is meant to be lived and experienced to the fullest every day. Here are 15 quotes to remind us of the most beautiful gift we humans possess.

2. “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes … the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules … You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things …” – Steve Jobs

3. “Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.” – Lillian Dickson

11. “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” – Mae West

  1. My favorite is #15! Sounds so simple, doesn’t it? Just wanted to say thanks for the Medium love! I’m not a paying member until probably next month, so I can’t follow you yet, but thanks so much! 🙂

    1. Hi Lauren. You write great content, plus you’re a superstar in the making, so it’s my pleasure to follow your journey. Yes, it is easy to grow despondent in the moment of things not going as one would hope, or as Kierkegaard declared, the “absurdity of life.” Even so, there is so much beauty along the journey of life that it is worth experiencing.


    1. Those picks are certainly noteworthy. #14 spoke to me also, in that it is a constant reminder that every day provides another opportunity to reflect on ways to reinvent our full selves, personal, career, relational, etc. Sometimes, that which we seek is closer than it appears. And it’s just a matter of patience and timing. I appreciate you for pushing the conversation forward. ☺️
