Wednesday Words of Wisdom: Squeezing the Most out of Every Moment

5 Jun

“Inspiration can be found anywhere, even a tube of toothpaste.”
Toni Andrukaitis
I’ve been pushing myself hard lately. But, writing a daily blog encourages me to look closely at everything, everyone, and squeeze every moment out of life. So, the other day, when I tried to squeeze that last teeny-tiny bit of toothpaste from the tube for the umpteenth time, I realized that sometimes you just have to say, “It’s all gone, there ain’t no more, give it up and toss the empty tube in the trash.” Great symbolism-slash-metaphor, right? Then, being the crazy person that I am, I ran into the kitchen to get my cell phone and took a picture of afore mentioned toothpaste tube. This is my life in a nut shell, or a nut house, depending on your perspective.


I found this interesting passage while researching:

Power Up Passage© of the Day:
Squeezing The Sponge.
August 16, 2002

In a way, your life is sort of like a great big sponge. Just like a sponge loaded with water, your life is loaded with fun and excitement and plenty of good times. In order to get the water out of the sponge, you have to squeeze it out. Likewise, in order for you to get all of the good out of your life’s adventure, you have to be willing to squeeze the most out of every moment of your life.

When you squeeze and squeeze again, you will squeeze out more good things, good times and good experiences than you ever thought possible. The great thing about life is you can squeeze and squeeze and squeeze some more and your sponge will never run dry. With each and every squeeze, you will discover more fun, more enjoyment and more happiness than you ever imagined was possible.

Life offers us the unfettered freedom to pursue our very best. So why don’t you go ahead and give life a good squeeze? Then make sure you keep squeezing your “sponge” each and every day of your life for the rest of your life. Just like the water logged sponge you kept on squeezing, anything and everything you have ever wanted is now within your grasp. Go head and squeeze and then squeeze some more. Your sponge will never run dry.
