Collect Moments, Not Things

A life steered with happiness, is what we all desire

and to live simply, dream big, explore love from within.

A need to pursue a passion, that sets our souls on fire.

Not afraid to make mistakes and learning from them.

To surround ourselves with flowers and a good book.

We yearn to live in the moment and take it day by day.

Soon you’ll find, that a positive attitude is all it took,

and your freedom is in your hands – mould the clay.

Why wait until we are old and retired to start living?

You crave great memories of a life lived, not regret,

and collecting life’s moments about loving and giving.

Life is a journey ­– and that’s all that needs to be said.
