Life's Motto

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

I really, really love this. I received this "motto" via email several years ago and I thought, "That is so me!" I'm probably one of the few people in my family who adopt this as their life's motto. My family (friends included) is pretty much a conservative lot and that is ok. They are great and I love them. They like to give me advice too. I always listen and appreciate, but I usually don't apply what they say; I can't help it. They are money savers; I'm not. They balance their checkbooks; I don't. They use their time wisely; I don't. They rarely take vacation from work; I take mine as soon as I earn it. They never call in sick; I do. They watch what they eat and drink; I don't. That being said . . . I never have any money, I'm always "in the hole" come payday, my house is not clean but I have a tan and know lots about TV stars, I can only take vacation days 1 or 2 at a time, and I'm fat. All in all though, I think I have a pretty good life. I get down in the dumps sometimes but we all do. I don't have a lot of frills but my needs are met. I think at the end of my life I can say that I lived full, loved much, and laughed often. That sounds like a delightful life for me.
