Note to self: LIVE your life.

Dag Nab it! The big 3-0 is approaching around the corner. I came across this poem at lunch yesterday while eating at Remington Cafe in Garapan entitled: On The Road. It "woke" me up again and reminded me to take more risks in life.

On The Road

Aren't you bored standing on the sidelines
Watching others run really hard
Cheering them on
And exchanging opinions?
Worrying if you'll be able to finish the race
Standing at the start line with uncertainties

Its time to get up there on the road
And start running
Its ok even if its slowly
And if it gets tiring, then walking is ok
Coming in last place is ok, with each step the scenery will change
Even if you run in place
The soles of your shoes are bound to wear out.

I think its easy to get caught up in the rat race and than lose your passion for life. Anyway, it made things more clearer for me! Just thoughts about living life to its fullest . . . =)

You've got to come to our play, Bridge to Terabithia. You just quoted a live from the play. The teacher is talking to Leslie just after the other girls had made fun of her for not fitting in. She said, "I'm not living my life to fit in. I'm living my life to live." Once we figure that out, life comes in live and in color.

You know what they say, "If you ain't living life on the edge, THEN YOU'RE TAKING UP TOO MUCH SPACE!" ...Or somethin' like that. Ooops! Too much space ahead, gotta get back to the edge.
