My grandmother once gave me a tip:
In difficult times, you move forward in small steps.
Do what you have to do, but little by little.
Don't think about the future, or what may happen tomorrow.
Wash the dishes.
Remove the dust.
Write a letter.
Make a soup.
You are advancing step by step.
Take a step and stop.
Rest a little.
Take another step.
You won't notice, but your steps will grow more and more.
And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying.
- Elena Mikhalkova

People die as uniquely as they live. 'Living every moment' means different things for different people - for some it's feeling the sun on their face or the sand in their toes, spending time with whānau, watching old movies or listening to their favourite song.
What does it mean to you? Leave us some comments and share your thoughts with family and friends.
