Living Life to the Fullest: Photo Challenge #265

Laying on the beach, comfortable and free,

Smokes, cold beer, sand, a book, and the sun .

The guy seemed like he had no real troubles,

As if all of his responsibilities had been done.

He was enjoying his life to the fullest, and

I envied him his ability to let go and just live.

For I tend to make much ado about everything,

Suffering the stress and headaches that gives.

As I watched him in his awesome nonchalance

Savor each moment without worry or many cares,

I knew that I needed to change how I live my life,

Start enjoying each moment to the fullest, if I dared.
