Here’s what I think … for now

February 2, 2010 at 8:51 am 5 comments

I originally posted this on July 6th, 2009 but as I was thinking today, it sprung to mind and I am reposting it.  It still speaks to me.

Life is too short to think about tomorrow, or later.  Do it now.  We all think we are going to live until we die of old age. There are no guarantees that this will happen, so live. NOW.

A crisis in faith means you need to have more faith. Not less.

Sometimes, music lyrics tell a story. It might even be yours. Sometimes, they are just great words set to great music.

Don’t always look for the underlying meaning.  Just enjoy things for what they are.

Don’t wait to tell people you love them. Do it now and do it often.

There is no delete or backspace button in life.

The answers to life’s questions do not exist in books, tv, or movies. They exist only in you.

Take a risk when it comes to relationships. Love is not easy. That is no reason to hold back even if it breaks your heart.

If you put your well-being behind everyone else, you are always last.  Put yourself first so that you have the energy, desire and happiness to be there for everyone else.

Choosing security over happiness never works.

Choosing money over happiness never works.

We are not here to work. We are here to live.  So quit living to work. Just live.

Who you choose to have in your life is a choice. If someone is giving you angst, share that and work toward harmony.  If it doesn’t happen, choose another path.

Listen to your gut. It talks but you need to listen.

There are always other paths in life.  How many have you tried?

Beauty is everywhere.  Open your eyes.

Looking outward means you are not looking inward.  Spend some time with yourself.

Sometimes, you just have to let go.

Why does it matter what others have that you don’t?  Will those things make you happier, more content, and more secure?

Enjoy today. Enjoy everyday.

Just be. Stop doing. All the doing and busyness in life takes away from the being.

Love hurts. Hearts break. Tears fall.  Then try again.

Friends are a great thing.  Cherish them.

You can’t make choices for other people. So stop trying.

Belief in yourself is extremely important.  So is appreciating yourself for who you are.

Love yourself.

This last one was said by someone else, but fits nicely: you have to put your oxygen mask on first before you can help anyone else. Is yours on?

    “Have you been half asleep? And have you heard voices?
    I’ve heard them calling my name.
    … Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
    The voice might be one and the same
    I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it
    It’s something that I’m s’posed to be…
    Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
    The lovers, the dreamers, and me.”

    As a child of the eighties myself I loved pounding out this tune on the piano, it was a robust yet meloncholy number …I never remembered any of the lyrics just the chorus …”some day well find it the rainbow connection the lovers the dreamers and me…. ” how inclusive is that? Anissa you are a connection that is suppose to be, like a piece of puzzle we did not know we were making. Thanks for connecting with me and with others, keep sharing it rings through the night.
