How to Master the Art of Living

"We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Do you wake up in the morning with a sense of excitement about the possibilities and looking forward to your tasks, new experiences, interactions, and discoveries which will unfold during your day? If so, then you are young no matter what your actual age. What a blessing to have the continually fresh wonder and suspense of an exciting life.

The secret to mastering the art of living the life you really want is to make, and take, the time to really be present in each moment. Stated another way, to live every moment, you must first decide to make, and take, the time to do it.

Unfortunately, we seem to believe the idea, or in the lifestyle, that everyone must constantly be doing something. What good is it to rush through our lives if we cannot enjoy living as we go?

To really live, set aside time to be with family and friends. We have been created as social beings and are placed on Earth to be of service and support to others.

Mark Twain reminds us that good books and good friends make up the ideal life. What are you reading and whom are you spending time with?

Life is a great gift you have been given, and it’s meant to be enjoyed. If you learn to really enjoy life you will have mastered the art of living.
