Somebody should tell us,
right at the start of our lives,
that we are dying.
Then we might live life to the limit,
every minute of every day. Do it! I say.
Whatever you want to do, do it now!
There are only so many tomorrows.
~ Pope Paul VI ~
If you don’t like something, change it;
if you can’t change it,
change the way you think about it.
