The Secret of Life

If you listen to country music at all, you probably remember the Faith Hill song. If not the video is at the bottom of the post, give it a listen. My favorite line is "The secret of life is try not to hurry, but don't wait - don't wait."

How true?! We are supposed to enjoy every moment of life, but always be ready for what comes next. How do you do both?

I had a conversation with a girl yesterday who told me "One day I realized I'd stopped dreaming, what kind of life is that? No goals, no plans?" She was trying to get through each day, and here I was so busy planning for the future, that I've forgotten to enjoy all the blessings I already have!

You know what I think the secret of life is? Nothing, you just have to enjoy what you have. Because experienced has taught me that just when you think everything has evened out, something else will change. Sometimes its good, sometimes not so much, but it will change.

I've been hung up on some decisions I'm making, when the reality is that they probably won't make that big of a difference in the big picture.

"There ain't no secret, and you don't get your money back."
