READ THIS VERY SLOWLY... IT'S PRETTY PROFOUND.


Too many people put off something that brings them joy just because they haven't thought about it, don't have it on their schedule, didn't know it was coming or are too rigid to depart from their routine.



I got to thinking one day about all those people on the Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to cut back. From then on, I've tried to be a little more flexible.



How many women out there will eat at home because their husband didn't suggest going out to dinner until after something had been thawed? Does the word 'refrigeration' mean nothing to you?



How often have your kids dropped in to talk and sat in silence while you watched 'Jeopardy' on television?



I cannot count the times I called my sister and said , 'How about going to lunch in a half hour?' She would gas up and stammer, 'I can't. I have clothes on the line. My hair is dirty. I wish I had known yesterday, I had a late breakfast, It looks like rain' And my personal favorite: 'It's Monday.' She died a few years ago. We never did have lunch together.



Because Americans cram so much into their lives, we tend to schedule our headaches.. We live on a sparse diet of promises we make to ourselves when all the conditions are perfect!



We'll go back and visit the grandparents when we get Steve toilet-trained. We'll entertain when we replace the living-room carpet. We'll go on a second honeymoon when we get two more kids out of college.



Life has a way of accelerating as we get older. The days get shorter, and the list of promises to ourselves gets longer. One morning, we awaken, and all we have to show for our lives is a litany of 'I'm going to,' 'I plan on,' and 'Someday, when things are settled down a bit.'



When anyone calls my 'seize the moment' friend, she is open to adventure and available for trips. She keeps an open mind on new ideas. Her enthusiasm for life is contagious. You talk with her for five minutes, and you're ready to trade your bad feet for a pair of Rollerblades and skip an elevator for a bungee cord.




My lips have not touched ice cream in 10 years. I love ice cream. It's just that I might as well apply it directly to my stomach with a spatula and eliminate the digestive process. The other day, I stopped the car and bought a triple-decker. If my car had hit an iceberg on the way home, I would have died happy.




Now..go on and have a nice day. Do something you WANT to...not something on your SHOULD DO list. If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? ;And why are you waiting?




Make sure you read this to the end; you will understand why I sent this to you.




Have you ever watched kids playing on a merry go round or listened to the rain lapping on the ground? Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight or gazed at the sun into the fading night? Do you run through each day on the fly? When you ask 'How are you?' Do you hear the reply?




When the day is done, do you lie in your bed with the next hundred chores running through your head? Ever told your child, 'We'll do it tomorrow.' And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch? Let a good friendship die? Just call to say 'Hi'?




When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift....Thrown away... Life is not a race. Take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.




Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND including me if you consider me a friend. If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends.



To those I have sent this to... I cherish our friendship and appreciate all you do. We have some history together.



'Life may not be the party we hoped for... but while we are here we might as well dance!'

It's pretty profound? No, it is simply profound, meaningful and it's wise to follow the lesson it teaches.

There is rarely any advantage putting off what's really important in life. Life is a precious gift and should not be wasted.

Living in the NOW is the only way to demonstrate and share your gratitude for this pricelss gift.

And why is it we only cherish and grasp this as we mature?

There is much to be said for spontaneity and flexibility. Flexibility and scheduling agility are very synergistic. But many people are not wired that way and cannot break out of their box or track. Many simply cannot function with any degree of effectiveness without rigid structure. In a way they suffer from a form of tunnel vision and can't see the forest for the trees as they are creatures of habit.

I agree with Dione when she said "It's pretty profound? No, it is simply profound, meaningful and it's wise to follow the lesson it teaches.

I live by the day. Looking back...yeah, I'll do that sometimes as I've got a lot of good memories. I'm always looking forward...but never really planning. I take each day as it comes, greet as a new beginning, and try not to let things I cannot change get in the way of enjoying life.

There is always the "stop to smell the roses" element. Many people don't and miss it. Every morning when I arise, after dawn, I behold the artwork of nature in shadows to the west on the street (my home is on the corner) as the sun radiates through the trees I planted 25 years ago on my parkway. They cast wonderful images upon the street. I behold the art of clouds. I watch my roses bloom through out the day from the room I write this from. It is all a matter of awareness and taking the time to consume what is shown as there is art in nature, beauty within life.
