Song Lyrics to Live By Volume 1

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.
