Livsnjutare


Livsnjutare (n.) – Origin: Swedish – Definition: One who loves life deeply and lives it to the extreme.

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. – Joe Lewis

I have visited this theme previously but here is a new word and so here we go again.  I will admit that I have done some pretty daring things in my life.  Some call them idiotic things and for sure, sometimes I feel that I might have bit off more than I could chew.  Some say I am lucky to be alive to even talk about living life to the extreme.

Don’t you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you’re not taking advantage of it? Do you realize you’ve lived nearly half the time you have to live already? ― Ernest Hemingway

The advantage of living my life to the fullest and to the extreme is that I do not have a bucket list.  I have no regrets.  I have carpe diem’d every part of my life.  I do not think I will be sitting at the end of my life wondering why I didn’t do or try the things I had always dreamed of or wanted to do.

It is not the years in your life but the life in your years that counts. – Adlai Stevenson

In exchange for this daring life.  I am still alive.  I am still trying new adventures and activities. Admittedly at a slightly slower pace and slightly less extreme – (falling hurts more now than it used to)!!

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, I used everything you gave me. – Erma Bombeck

  1. I am not the daring person you are, but I’ve done my share of adventurous things, and thank God I have. I have great memories, and, as you say, I’m still alive. More to do at a much slower pace. I still love adventure, especially in the form of travelling. You’ve done so much that is not only daring, but downright brave. Do you think you seek out adventure more because of having been in the military? Or was that just an expression of your spirit, too?

    • I joined the military largely due to my spirit! I read adventure novels growing up. I have lived out my dreams and ironically for every dream I lived … more dreams were brought to the surface.. so I have never run out of dreams!

Watcha wanna say...
