Today we have bigger houses and smaller families
More convenience, but less time.

We have more degrees, but less common sense
More knowledge, but less judgEment.

We have more experts, but more problems
More medicine, but less wellness

We spend too recklessly
Laugh too little
Drive too fast
Get toO angry too quickly
Stay up too late
Read too little
Watch TV too much
And pray too seldom

We multiplied our possessions, but reduce our values
We talk too much, love to little and lie too often

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life
We've added years to life, not life to years.

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less
We buy more, enjoy it less.

We've been all the way to the moon and back
But have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbors.

We've conquered outer space
But not inner space.

We've split the atom
But not our prejudice

We write more, learn less, -----plan more, but accomplish less,
we've learned to rush, but not to wait, we have higher incomes,
but lower morals.

We build more computers to hold more information, to produce
more copies
But have less communication

We are long on quantity,
But less in quality.

These are the time of fast foods and slow digestion
Tall men and short character.

More leisure and less fun....more kinds of food.....but less nutrition
Two incomes,,,,,,,but more divorce
Fancier homes,,,,but broken homes

That's why I propose, that as of today, you do not keep anything for special
occasion, because every day you live is a special occasion.

Search for knowledge, and more, sit on your front porch and admire the view
without paying attention to your needs.

Spend more time with your family and friends, eat your favorite foods,
and visit the places you love.

Life is a chain of moment of enjoyment, not only about survival.

Use your crystal goblets, do not save your best perfume, and use it every
time you feel you want it.

Remove from your vocabulary phrases like "one of these days".

Let's tell our families and friends how much we love them.
Do not delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life.

Every day, every hour, and every minute is special.
And you don't know if it will be your last.

If you're too busy to take the time to send this message to someone
you love and you tell yourself you will send it "one of these days"


"one of these days"
