A life today. It is everything. Networks of family (was about to put friends first), but family, friends and all the rest have the ability to capture a life today. How talents are unleashed is the test. “Embrace your weirdness”, as my little sister says.I always thought that just living was good enough, doing my very personal best and living each day, then waking up to the next. BOR-ing….hear the sound…

That’s not living, that’s being. What good does it do to just be?….BOR-ing, (sigh). What defines and separates from the person sitting next to me isn’t what I do better than them, it’s how figuring out how to help them.

Today is the promise and the threat. It’s a challenge to see what this minute brings, and do what needs to be done. Ever heard that luck is when preparation meets opportunity? Opportunity is in the eye of the beholder. My opportunity to see and capture today is different. Every challenge and hardship we face is a learning Opportunity. If that opportunity isn’t captured, it’s lost forever.

Time kills deals, you’ve heard that before, right? Time wasted by not capturing opportunity (yes I’ve used it as a noun),lessens the impact. THEN it diminishes into the deep dark hole of regret. Regrets are the ultimate self destruction. The Shoulda Coulda Woulda—-describes the above 16 babbling sentences in a nut-shell. Shoulda done this and I shoulda done that….go ahead sing the country tune–now would be a good time to stay but it’s a little too late….
The greatest thing about all of this whole thing is that it’s never too late….never too late to give in, never too late to forget the past, never too late to believe in someone you thought was hopeless and never too late to live like it’s the last day of your life….yet another country tune to ponder.
