"You see I'm one of those people who lives sensibly and sanely"

This has been making its way through the blogosphere, but oh, how it speaks to me! I couldn't resist posting it myself.

I think we all worry that when we reach the end of our days we'll look back with regrets and wishful thinking. I'm not a true believer in regrets because I'm such a proponent of free will. I choose my life, and therefore I don't regret the things I've done because they are an integral part of who I am. But, I do believe in wishful thinking, and that can be a bittersweet thing; an overwhelming force of both the positive and the negative.

So, here's my little reminder to embrace the carefree a little more with each passing year; to take more risks; and to keep happiness at the top of my list of achievements.

This life is mine, no one elses, and I am responsible for its outcome.


  1. I LOVE this! This is the first time I've actually seen it but what a great reminder!

  2. I attended a funeral recently, and the person had SUCH a full life. Accomplished SOO much- it really made me start thinking about how people would talk about me and when I pass one day...And if I will feel "ready"


Thanks for stopping by!
