I had a wake-up call today
An E-mail was sent to me
About what's really important
And I think, you will agree
We rush because
There are schedules to keep
We stay with the same hectic routine
But, the things that make us happy
Are the things, never seen
A phone call from family or friend
"Let's go out and have some fun"
But, we are always too busy
And it's never done
We act like life is a race
We have to hurry, to the end
What happens at the finish line?
The race is over, my friend
I don't want my trophy to be
A tombstone ....
Oh? You moan?
Thank about it......
We put what is really important
Down at the bottom
We're so programmed to keep doing this
And all the things that
Are the things we continue to MISS
So dreams we have, are just dreams
Because, you know what we do?
Put them on hold ....
That's where they stay
They are dreams we never pursue
Here is something to think about
Call someone and go out to a beautiful place
Laugh, Enjoy Life, Get Out of this
"Things I THINK I Have To Do" ... RACE
Keep this thought going .....
Do you know a person
Who could use this advice?
If they ignore it, and won't have some fun
Then this is what you do....
INSIST and SEND IT TWICE!!
If We Don't Take Time To Enjoy Life ....
What's Life All About?
