“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body. But rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming, “Wow, what a ride!” – Unknown
Tomorrow, when I’m back on my soap box telling you what you should eat… shouldn’t eat…. reminding you to take care of yourself.. and, by all means, telling you to put down the cigarettes while you can still breathe – do not remind me of the quote above.
I’ll deny ever seeing it, let alone re-posting it.
But for now, yeah, let’s all vow to concentrate MORE on the ride and less on the destination. I can’t help but think about Survivor and another personal favorite, The Biggest Loser. Contestants – even on day 1 always talk about the finale and the big check.
Ironically, it’s usually the ones who are too busy enjoying the ride to worry about the end that actually walk away with everything. I’d be willing to bet the rest wish they’d simply enjoyed the once-in-a-lifetime ride rather than tried to steer so hard.
I’ve read these types of reflections before. Not from reality show contestants, mind you, but from people just like you and me – people who are at the end of the ride, wishing they’d simply enjoyed the once-in-a-lifetime ride rather than tried to steer so hard.
May we all skid in broadside!
