Happy New Year everyone!
This post might get a little long-winded, but I hope you take a few minutes to read it.
Tim really likes a band called The Cruxshadows. I love their song titled Birthday.
The song starts “Roll out of bed, look in the mirror, and wonder who you are. Another year has come and gone. Today is your birthday. But it might be the last day of your life. What will you do if tomorrow it’s all gone?”
No it is not my birthday, but it is a new year. This is when people make resolutions they usually don’t keep. Maybe instead of resolutions, we should take some time to reflect on our lives so far.
The part of the song that caught my attention is “Look at your life. Who do you want to be before you die? Look at your life. And what do you want to do? Look at your life. Who do you want to be before you die? Look at your life. You haven’t got forever.
It got me thinking. Is there something you need or want to do? Are you happy? What can you do or change so you can be happy?
I certainly don’t have all of the answers, but I have in recent years made changes in my life. I’m not quite where I want to be in life, but I keep working at it.
I know life can be short. My Dad passed at a young age. It made me realize how precious the time we have really is.
I’m not talking about wealth or material things. I’m certain I will never be wealthy, however I am rich in that I have a wonderful family (for the most part) and good friends. I try to be helpful and giving as much as possible.
I do want to travel a bit more before I cannot. I want to be able to see new places and enjoy them while I can. My health isn’t 100%, so I have really been reflecting on this.
“Look at your life. What do you want to do? Look at your life. Who do you want to be before you die? Look at your life. You haven’t got forever.”
