Today’s Words for the Week are from Ray Lammie in his Thought for Today.
From birth to age 12 seemed like it took 20 years.
From 12 until age 16 felt like 15 years to me.
From 16 to age 21 was another 10 years.
From age 21 to age 30 was a tough 15 years.
From 30 to the age of 50 seemed like it only took about 8 years.
From 50 until age 60 was very strange — I went to bed one night at 50 and woke up 60!
After age 60 you get up in the morning, grab something to eat, and presto it’s midnight.
Value every year, every day, every hour and even every minute. Don’t spend a lot of time looking forward to some “certain event”; it will surely come soon enough. Spend your time and thoughts in the wonder and the miracle of “today”. Grab hold of this day with passion, desire, love, and with a positive outlook. Life is a wonderful adventure. I sure wish I had found that out at the beginning of this journey.
