Live Life To The Fullest

Live life to the fullest, we hear that all the time, but what does living life to the fullest really mean? Well it means a few different things to me. My motto is "life is to short to drink crappy coffee and cry over boys who don't care". I really love that saying because it really gets the point of living life to the fullest,especially for a college student. What college student has time to cry over people who don't care and to drink coffee that does not taste quit right?

I have spent so much time going over little thoughts, over and over again, and it's about things that don't even matter. I think that has hurt me more than anything or anyone. It has torn me up inside and I have friends that say life is to short to obsess over things like that. As much as I don't want to admit it, they are right. God does not guarantee another day for me to live, but then I worry about things that don't even matter.

There is so much more to life then what college throws at me; school, choir, and friendships, it's all temporary. Pretty soon I will graduate from college and have a real adult job. So why do I keep wasting so much time worrying about things that are not in my control? It will be gone before I know it, so I need to live it up now.

I guess this is a letter from the Lord to myself, that it's time to start living it up. So much has happened in my life this past year and there are times I felt sorry for myself instead of looking at everything I have right in front of me. I'm going to start listening to those comments I use to think were lame and start living life to the fullest, no more going through the motions.

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me" -John 15:4
