So I’m sitting here at my desk, working away, doing my typing for Monday now, over the weekend, as I always do so I can have Monday free rather than Sat/Sun free. I thought I’d take a little break from my work and thumb through a new catalog that just came in with today’s post. I came to a little sign for sale, a wooden burgundy sign, with a great MOTTO printed on it that I just fell in love with. You may have seen this motto before, but for me, today, it hit me just right and I think I’ll adopt it as my motto from now on. It goes like this:
MOTTO TO LIVE BY
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely in an
attractive and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, body
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and
screaming: “WOO HOO, what a ride!”
Oh yeah. I’m definitely going to end my days with a thoroughly used up and totally worn out body. In fact, the way I feel these days, that day may not be too far off!
Oh, BTW, the catalog, just to give credit where credit is due, was The Country House catalog, on page 24.
