Pay Attention!

There is an expression that says that you ONLY have one life to live. I disagree. You have one life to live and you live it everyday. You've got a lot to lose when you realize that. What you chose to do today can bite you in the butt tomorrow.

Join me as I share my thoughts with you and don't forget your coffee ...

Good morning my friend.

Hope you have your cup of Joe in hand, nice and warm ... nothing like a first cup in the morning. The smell alone is worth it all, isn't it?

Whoever invented coffee was a genius and I'm thankful for it. #2 on my list of gratitude for the day. <chuckles> You're probably wondering what my #1 is, aren't you? Well ok, it was that the bathroom wasn't occupied. I hate dancing first thing in the morning. <laughing>

You know ...

Everybody has a choice on how to view things in the course of a day. You can either get angry, cry or laugh.

Here's how it goes, you have 1 life to live but that life is lived one day at a time.

Real life, real issues, real people, real events, good and bad, happen.

View each one carefully. Whatever bad happens, it can be viewed 1 of 2 ways: The world is coming to an end or roll up your sleeves and make something of it.

Good and bad refines us ...

It makes us, strengthens us, and enriches us with knowledge, power to encourage, understand, support and be an inspiration.

There is always good in a day and it's up to us to find it. It doesn't come with a red flag and it will not kick you in the butt and say: "Hey you, pay attention!" like I just did.<chuckles>

Just a though on how I see life ... what is yours?

Pick of the day ...

Ok, today my pick is Live It Well by Switchfoot ... now I don't know the group and I have never heard the song before a few days ago but I love it and the message which applies here. Hope you enjoy it!

I wish you all a good day and be good to one another. Don't take your freedom for granted because it's not a given for everyone to do so.

and SMILE! because you're on life's candid camera!
