Notes from "Marley & Me"

Live life to the fullest NOW! There won't be any rewind or pause button - however hard you wish for it. And - why on earth would someone want a fast forward button?

But for some strange reason - through the life's downs or cause you think the grass on the other side is greener or just for no reason whatsoever - you (mmm actually - me) attempt to press an imaginary fast forward button.

When that happens, stop and remind yourself... that this very second of your life's down, will never happen again (well - not exactly the same).

So, here's a thought.

Why not try to enjoy it (or at the very least just go through it properly)? Quite possibly, some time in the not-too-distant future, looking back, this second would be one of the moment that makes your life... or at the very least - makes your life's ups feel even sweeter.

"A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbol means nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his.

It was really quite simple, and yet we humans, so much wiser and more sophisticated, have always had trouble figuring out what really counts and what does not. Sometimes it takes a dog with bad breath, worse manners, and pure intentions to help us see. Ask yourself, how many people in this world can truly make you feel rare, pure and extraordinary?"
-- Josh Grogan from Marley & Me

Hmm... Pssst, here's another one!
"Sometimes life has a better idea (than us)."
-- Arnie Klein from Marley & Me

Well - I, for one, need to stop wasting my time attempting to fast forward my life; or rewind; or even pause; or worse, live in the past.

I will sort out my priority; savour and appreciate my life as it is at the moment. Cause what I have is Fabulous (with a capital F, that is!) ^.^

Very nice and deep quote! Actually the whole film (found at rapidshare ) made me feel a bit sophisticated and think about life and eveything that is dear to me
