I know, you shouldn’t look for answers to your questions on the jukebox, but there are just some lyrics that speak to me. They speak of the life I have lived, or the life I want to live, of the things in life I’m doing right, and the things I need to be reminded of. Occasionally, I’m going to share with you some of the song lyrics that hit home for me as to what life should be and the things to keep in mind as you travel around the sun:
From — Cowboy in the Jungle by Jimmy Buffett
Alone on a midnight passage,
I can count the falling stars
While the Southern Cross and the satellites
They remind me where we are
Spinning around in circles
and living it day to day
and still twenty four hours, maybe sixty good years
It’s really not that long a stay
We’ve gotta roll with the punches
Learn to play all of our hunches
Make the best of whatever comes your way
Forget that blind ambition
and learn to trust your intuition
Plowing straight ahead come what may.
I think that’s perfect to keep in mind here on my 42nd birthday as I embark now on my 43rd trip around the sun. It’s really not that long a stay after all. Gotta make the most of it.
Happy Birthday! Seems appropriate. 🙂
Thank you Julie!
Happy Birthday Brian. Hope your year is as wonderful as you are.
Thank you Holly!!
