30 Days of Truth: Day Five

Day Five - Something you hope to do in your life.

I can't say it any better than Tim McGraw said it...

"And he said
Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'."
~Live Like You Were Dyin', Tim McGraw

I try to face each day as though it's my last. I don't always accomplish that, but at the end of any day I can say that I'm pretty much satisfied. Through some harsh lessons, I've learned how fragile life is. I'm not afraid of that, but I'm not lookin' forward to it either. I've determined the best I can do is happiness - mine and those I love.

"Have you found joy in your life?"
"Has your life brought joy to others?"
~The Bucket List

Oh, I have. And oh, I do hope so.

Because anything else I want out of life? Anything else is just a plan.

Living is about finding joy in each breath.

  1. "Living is about finding joy in each breath."

    i couldn't agree more.

    And you have brought me joy, for sure. i consider you a very good friend and hope when we're old(er) and grey(er), we'll still be friends, laughing and talking about art, even if our arthritic bodies keep us from artifying like we used to.
