Today is my birthday, and as I go out to make it a great one, I leave you with this:
Do each activity that you enjoy as if it is your first and last time doing it. Do it with the wonder and excitement of the first time and the appreciation and cherishing of the last time.
-written and submitted by Brett B., Madison WI
The heart may freeze or it can burn;
The pain will ease if I can learn;
There is no future, there is no past;
I live this moment as my last.
There’s only us, there’s only this;
Forget regret, or life is yours to miss;
No other road, no other way;
No day but today.
