Top 5 Reasons To Cherish Every Moment
Cherish means to “treat with affection and tenderness; hold dear; to keep fondly in mind; treasure; appreciate.”
There are a few things that I haven’t ever taken for granted and I have always cherished every moment of the experience. Some of my most cherished moments include all the time I’ve spent with my sweet redheaded niece, Brittany.
Overall, I have come up with the Top 5 Reasons To Cherish Every Moment. They can be applied to any person or situation and the main point is that cherishing moments should be a conscious effort you make each day. That is the best way to ensure that none of those cherished moments slip by unnoticed.

#5 Your life could end at any moment. – I’m not trying to be morbid or instill fear, but the fact is none of us know when we are going to die. Therefore, it is important that we don’t procrastinate cherishing every moment in our life.
#4 Life is a beautiful gift. – No amount of money can buy anyone another life. Therefore, life is a beautiful gift that we should cherish.
#3 Every moment is unique. – We get one life experience and only one shot at life. Whenever there is just one of something, the perceived value immediately sky rockets. Well, the value of life is priceless. No two lives are exactly the same because no two people are exactly the same. Every person is unique and since every minute of life is unique, we have the opportunity to cherish them all.
#2 At the end of your life, you don’t want to regret all the things you didn’t attempt or recognize. – Nothing hurts or stings worse than regret both for things we shouldn’t have done or things we should have done, but didn’t do. I’m sure you can think of a few times in your life that you regret and those experiences are usually never far from your mind.
#1 Life changes constantly. – Actually, life goes by so quickly that sometimes you don’t even notice all the changes that have been happening. Every minute of your life has a expiration date which is “Now!” Once a moment has passed, it is gone forever except in our memories. Cherishing moments as they happen will not only help you feel thankful for life, but also help you to have a more positive and happy outlook.
