9 Years

Live Life Every Day ® was founded on March 20, 2010 making today our 9th Birthday!  Also, don't forget we share our birthday with the International Day of Happiness!  Here's a special message from our Founder and President:
 
9 years, wow
It’s really been that long, how?
9 years of grinding, day after day
Pushing forward and trying to find my way
Brick after brick, the foundation was built
The fact that it’s taken this long brings me no guilt
The best things in Life often take time
Like making a fine wine
Or a whiskey that’s been aging for 20 or 30 years
So please get rid of all your...

The Wild Ride

Life is a wild ride
It will whip you around from side to side
Take you and drop you from way up high
But also give you the feeling as though you can fly
The adrenaline rush is like no other
Making you speechless at times or maybe even stutter
There is no greater ride to take
The decision is so easy to make
So then why do so many of us skip this ride?
Don’t you want to be able to say, “At least I tried”?
Too many people are scared of the drops
Or scared of being so high up that their ear pops
Some people are impatient and don’t want to...

How To Climb a Mountain

You look up and see it reach into the sky
You think to yourself, “There’s a chance I might die.”
“How will I ever do this?!,” you shout
As your mind tries to fight off the doubt
There will be snow and there will be rain
There will certainly be moments of intense pain
But you know when you reach the top and stand tall
It’s going to have been worth it all
You look around to make sure you have all your tools
And all your papers that have all the rules
“You have to do this first” and “make sure you do it like that”
Who knew the rulebook would be this fat?
You look around and see there’s a crowd...

Where Is The Love?

Where did all the hate come from? 
Don’t we know that hate makes the heart numb? 
What happened to the love? 
A world with peace is what I’m thinking of 
Why do we feel the need to fight? 
Even when we know the other side is right? 
What happened to simple human decency? 
Negativity is winning the battle, can’t you see? 
Our minds have been clouded by things that don’t matter 
And the hate around our hearts has grown fatter and fatter 
When will it end, is what I want to know 
I think we’ve all grown tired of this unentertaining show 
Why are we so caught up in...

Greatness

You were meant to be great
Born into this world with a simple fate
To leave it as a much better place
And to teach it how to have a smile on its face
To bring a positive change to this negative time
To look at the mountain and teach the world how to climb
Your journey was never meant to be easy
Facts are facts, it doesn’t matter if it sounds cheesy
Before you succeed, you will have to suffer
This is how all the great ones get tougher
With every failure remember who you were meant to be
Use it as motivation to grow your inner tree
And with every branch that forms, your heart will...
