I came across this post. Had to share.
Life is short. We all say this. Made me wonder…
Are you living the life you deserve?
If any of your answers were “no”.
The clock waits for no one.
Time wasted can not be regained.
Make a plan. Set some goals.
Your life is your canvas. You are it’s pen, brush, camera…
Go create a masterpiece.
Nicole Olea’s love language is communication. She does this best using her keyboard as a freelance copywriter and editor. Creative and resilient with high-level experience in social media management, content creation, and eCommerce marketing, Nicole Olea was a professional volunteer, sharing her skills with various non-profit organizations who paid her in hugs. For the last 20 years, she’s lived a quasi-nomadic life, moving across the country and the Atlantic with her active-duty husband and their three kids. She’s awkwardly stumbling toward her goal of becoming a saint. She’s got God-sized dreams and wants you to have them too!
I’m doing my best to live the best life I can.

So many people look back on life and have regrets. I definitely don’t want to be one of those!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says
I like thinking that we are all working on our own masterpieces.
Jennifer @ The Quirky Momma says
You know, I’m pretty happy with how my life has turned out. I’m not doing what I thought I’d be doing, but it’s a blessing anyway.
Most days my answer is yes, but lately I’m so busy and tired with my son’s school, home life, work, etc., that I feel like I’m not stopping to breathe (and smell the roses as they say). 🙂
We are in flux in our family life at the moment, needing to move but we can’t sell our current home, it makes it difficult to be excited or enjoy much right now. Thanks for this, because it really put my situation in perspective. There is always something to be excited and to strive for!
HilLesha @To the Motherhood says
These great words to live by!
Love that. I am definitely trying to live the life I deserve.
Elaina- @atimeout4mommy says
WOW! I love this!
So true! Very inspiring!
Ty @ Mama of 3 Munchkins says
This is great! I have been taking steps lately to really make my life what I want it to be, hence my taking four boys across the US this summer. I have always wanted to travel and don’t want to wait, so I might as well build memories with my boys while I’m at it.
I love this.
Jenn @TheRebelChick says
I love this! I am happy to say my answers were YES!
April Golightly says

Meghan @JaMonkey says
Love this. Pinned it to keep it in my mind.
Mom Foodie says
Excellent point of view.
This is great! So many people (women especially) are so caught up in their appearance and it’s true that beauty does eventually fade.
TerriAnn @ Cookies & Clogs says
I think it’s great to remember that we can’t go back so it’s important to try and make each day better than the last 😉
This is great, thanks for sharing.
Rachel @ Following In My Shoes says
It’s beautiful but something I struggle with … I get caught up in all of those things she is warning against. 🙁
Paula @ Frosted Fingers says
I know I need to set some goals for myself for sure!
this is so moving. It’s so true and actually no, I am not where I wish I was in my life.
I love this and can honestly say that I am living a wonderful life!
Ugh, so depressing…I FEEL like I’m getting old, and I FEEL time passing too quickly 🙁
Kelly @ A Girl Worth Saving says
So true. That’s why I want to do several more cookbooks.
I have recently been struggling with this so I decided I am going to be the person I want to be. I started teaching myself to play the piano. I want to learn sign language. I want to somehow be “more” than I am and I am going to make it happen.
