The Last Day

Come to me.
Hold my hand.
My life is falling through the sand.

Whether you are 22 or 92, make sure your life doesn’t fall through the cracks unnoticed.

Angry?  Then air out.

Tired?  Then stretch out.

Stressed?  Take time out.

Laugh till you cry, and don’t ask why.

Every moment could be your last.  Don’t count on more.

Say your hellos before you have to say your goodbyes.

Be the best you can be, so you never have to relive the nightmares of doubt and regret.

Be the friend you want to have.

Make peace with those you feel have failed you or those you think you have let down.

Build flexibility into your schedule.  The birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and whatnot are always more important to your well-being than a golf date to close a big deal.

You do attract to yourself what you dish out.  So dish out respect, love, tolerance, generosity, forgiveness, laughter, humor, camaraderie, thoughtfulness, respect, honesty…you get the idea.

Live fully in the present moment.  It’s all you have and all you ever will have.  It’s over in a blink.

As my favorite trainer and business philosopher, Jim Rohn, said:
We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.”
