One shot around!

I have to start out by saying I heart my BFF! She is the one human who I can honestly talk to about things deep within my heart without feeling judgment or having to sugarcoat those scary thoughts in your mind. It has been that way since we were very young. Neither of us has a blood sister, but she is my sister by choice(and without all the sibling rivalry). Needless to say, she is very inspirational to me. Today when I got to work, I had a message in my in-box waiting for me from her with a video attached.(Of course I didn’t watch it on company time nor did I check my personal email from my work computer. Who do you think I am?) It started my day off on a perfect note. I feel energized and ready to live December 12th, 2008 in recognition that I will never again see another December 12th, 2008.  Here is the link.

The interview

I’m not going to write a bunch of grandiose comments about what I thought but I will add a few statements and I would love to hear what you took away from this. This video inspired me to live in the present. I don’t want to rush into the next phase of life like I have before. There is no point in comparing myself to others because I am unique and unlike anyone else no matter how hard I try to fit into civilization. To me, living life to it’s fullest doesn’t mean having a million experiences. You will never see all that could be seen, or know all there is to know so the idea leaves you defeated at the end of your life. For me, to live life to it’s fullest is to take what I have and make it beautiful. I want to have rich relationships with old and new friends and  treasure and enrich the traditions and culture that I already live in. I want to produce great things out the callings that God has placed on my life.  When I look at my life in the present, there is so much that could be built upon and made more full.  I don’t need to go out and search for more, wasting time on things that will only go so far.

A popular song by 33 Miles right now says “You only get just one time around, You only get one shot at this, One chance to find out the one thing that you don’t wanna miss.”

What is that one thing you don’t want to miss? What is one thing, when it is all said and done is going to matter more than money, more than reputation, more than your lives resume?

Sorry, I didn’t mean to get so deep on a Friday morning! Have a great weekend!

  1. I love you too!!!! I knew you were the one person who would get EXACTLY what I meant by sending you that! I took away from it that there are simple life lessons that we all know that we sometimes forget and it takes a moment, a deep breath, and a prayer sometimes to feel that connection with God that gets us through when we think there is nothing left. Wow guess I am getting deep on a Friday, too. Seriously I love you lots and can’t wait to keep learning these lessons with you!
    PS Our song came on while I was reading the blog…God? I think so. :)
