Quote of the day

There are those of us who are always about to live. We are waiting until things change, until there is more time, until we are less tired, until we get a promotion, until we settle down -- until, until, until. It always seems as if there is some major event that must occur in our lives before we begin living.
- Sheehan, George

i always think, "you're only going to get older and wrinkly so better to do fun things now"...not the best for my bank account, but its been a pretty good strategy so far...

I love that qoute. It reminds me of something in the movie PS I love you. (I love that film)

In the beginning she asks him when their life is going to begin and he says that they're already in their lifes, they're already living it!

And it makes sense. For me it's always something.

tal - I try to think like that too! I hope I'll be even better at living life to the fullest when I'm old and wrinkly, though.

sleepyjane - It's always something for me, too. I sometimes need a reminder that I'm living my life, not waiting to live my life.
