It can be shocking when you realize that time is not infinite and each day your life grows shorter.

Just a wake up call as the New Year is now beckoning, not to waste it. Do not let it drift by you, rather resolve that this is going to be a really great year for you. Now go and make it happen!! Let’s hear it for a new and wonderful year!

If I have loved those around me, savored the sweetness of the moment and conducted my life with honesty and integrity, it will never matter if this day is my last on this earth.

live and love like each day might be your last. Mercia Tapping

None of us know when our time is going to be up on this planet, although when I was younger I felt I would live forever. Now being an age when I realize that life is finite, I try and live my life each day, so that I have no regrets or shame about my behavior during the day that has just passed.

If I have loved those around me, savored the sweetness of the moment and conducted my life with honesty and integrity, it will never matter if this day is my last on this earth.

getting your ducks in a row just takes a bit of patience. Mercia Tapping

I am starting to plan my life so that 2016 is MY year, where some good things really start happening.

There is much that can happen in your life to change it for the better, but I am convinced it takes infinite patience. I wish I could just wave a magic wand, and I am sure that you do too.

Good Friends Always Help Each Other Out

good friends always help each other out. treasure them. Mercia Tapping

Real friends are one of the most valuable things we can have in our lives.

When you go through tough times, then you get to see who your real friends are. These are the people who fly to your side and offer you a helping hand when you need it the most. The fair weather friends just silently drift away.

It is important to know the difference and try to be a real friend to others.

There Is Intense Joy In Giving

there is intense joy in giving. remember to let others have the joy of giving to you. Mercia Tapping

As giving people we are often more comfortable being the giver rather than the receiver. If you receive a gift from another this Christmas, however small, it is because they truly care for you. Be present to the thought and love behind the gift.

Thrive Not Just Survive

Thrive don’t just survive.

I believe in this very passionately. I know there are periods of one’s life that due to of unwelcome or painful events, that all you can do is hold on, taking it one step at a time and just survive.

I certainly have had many of those days. But I have never lost the hope that thriving on life lies on the other side, which makes survival worthwhile.

Thriving to me above all else means both giving and receiving love in abundance, as well as enjoying good health. In addition, there are a myriad of things in life which give me great joy, the list is endless.

I might say that after a certain base level of financial security has been reached, what gives me joy and has me thrive, has far more to do with experiences than the acquisition of more stuff.

Thriving means very different things to each of us, and I invite you to think about what thriving means to you. Then you can move with confidence towards it.

Your support of the “Only One Life Don’t Waste” project is truly needed for spreading the word. I would like to be inspiring as many people as possible each day so that they believe like I do that life is not to be wasted..Please feel free to leave your comments and best of all share with others.

Remember That Unwanted Gift

Filed in Cancer, Happiness, Hope, Inspirational, Life, Love by on December 23, 2015

remember that unwanted gift was someone's way of saying "I love you". Mercia Tapping

In my callow youth, I was guilty of opening a gift and feeling irritated that it was nothing that I would ever use. Didn’t the gift giver know better? My mother scrimped and saved and bought things at yard sales so there appeared to be abundance under the Christmas tree. Everyone in the family despised their gifts, and for half a lifetime I hated receiving gifts, although I always loved giving a thoughtful gift to others that gave them pleasure.

Then it all changed for me when I had cancer. People brought and sent me gifts. I was quite astonished. Then I realized that each of those gifts was someone’s way of saying ” I love you” and as I digested that, being given a gift took on an entirely new meaning.

Do not let that happen to you. Live and love with no regrets.

The Real Success

Filed in Grief, Life, Love by on December 22, 2015

the real success is whether you have lived and loved with no regrets. Mercia Tapping

My mother was a good woman who loved, cherished and fought for the best for all members of her family. I owe much to her. But the sad thing about my mother’s life is that while she tried hard, she was never truly happy and at peace with her life, due to my father’s behavior.

As she approached death, I am sure she wondered about a path and a life not taken, and as she lay dying, it was not surrounded by abundant love in the way that we hope we will all die some day. That made a deep impression on me as she had a life full of pain, regrets, and did not get the love she deserved.

Do not let that happen to you. Live and love with no regrets.
