When I first stumbled upon this quote, it became my favorite, and though I have an arsenal of quotes I love and read on a regular basis, this one remains my mantra. It's a reminder that while I can plan and dream for tomorrow and the years to come, making every moment matter—making the most of this day—is most important of all. We have no idea what tomorrow brings, but if we live each day to the fullest, a concept we've all heard many, many times, we can truly call ourselves happy and strive to live a life with purpose and without regrets. Far easier said than done, but what a joy it is to try.
My second place favorite quote is below, but it's much longer, hence second . . .
