Today was one of those days I had nothing about which to climb up on my delusional soapbox. I’ve got nothing.
Well, there is that sequestration thing that the Washington gang has begun to market as of it was the latest version of Playstation 10.
Since I unglued myself from the 24-hour news cycle, I’m totally ignorant about what Congress is “sequestrating,” but it sounds like some law maker spent a lot of time coming up with a term to misuse and confuse us as much as possible. I vote for sequestering Congress until their terms expire. Maybe they will go home and we can start over with a new group of “adults.”
The ideals we start off with as teenagers can slip through our fingers as we stumble into a grown up world where money and the acquisition of more “stuff” becomes a driving force in our lives. The cascade of to-dos never stops and before we know it, we’re older than we want to be with a shelf of dusty, untouched possibilities that were never explored.
Life Is Too Short
Life is too short to let even one day be frenzied or frazzled or frittered away.
Life is too short not to take time to do the things that will hold the most meaning for you.
So let yourself float like a leaf on a stream, relax with your memories and let yourself dream.
Throw out your list that’s impossibly long, and dance a few steps to a favorite song.
Turn off the news and go find someone real who’ll listen and talk and affirm what you feel.
Life is too short and flies by if you let it, so choose what you want — and go and get it.
