Start Living

I know this song has been out a few years but every time I hear it I keep telling myself, tomorrow, I need to really follow its advice. Yes tomorrow! Definitely tomorrow! Or just as soon as I get this project done, finish this speech, or return the 400+ emails that are piling up in my inbox. Then I can do it. Then I will start.

This morning I could have easily been hit by a truck on the way to the office.

Maybe I shouldn't wait until tomorrow. No, definitely I shouldn't wait until tomorrow because in life, tomorrow is never guaranteed.

Good advice Tim McGraw. God advice indeed!

I "market" hospice services and have come to live the philosophy of this video/song.

People ask how I can work in hospice and I ask, "How can I not?"

Every day, I am not hampered by unresolved issues because I love, hug, kiss, and cry. Basically, working with the dying has taught me to live.

Thanks for the reminder.

I love it when a typo (if, in fact, it is a typo) gives a new & deeper meaning to a statement.

"Good advice Tim McGraw. God advice indeed."

I agree that the powerful message of the song is likely supported by both sources cited. :-)

Pace e bene,

Robin,

Thank you so much for your comment. I am quite certain that you learn a lot of lessons doing what you are doing.

We should chat sometime.

Jag,

Wow....the subconscious has a funny way of getting the messages you want to get across, across.

Thanks for pointing that out!

Glad to see you are back from your Italian adventures!!!
