Live it UP

So–I was thinking….
I am 51 years, 11.1 months old.
I am 623 months old. I am 2709.1 weeks old.
I have been alive 18,964 days.

If I live to age 75 I have:

I have 288 months left to live.
I have 1252.3 weeks left to live.
I have 8,766 days left to live.

These quotes seem appropriate:

Oh! Teach us to live well!
Teach us to live wisely and well!
Come back, God—how long do we have to wait?—
and treat your servants with kindness for a change.
Surprise us with love at daybreak;
then we’ll skip and dance all the day long.
Make up for the bad times with some good times;
we’ve seen enough evil to last a lifetime.
Let your servants see what you’re best at—
the ways you rule and bless your children.
And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us,
confirming the work that we do.
Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do! David in Psalm 90

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. ~Fr. Alfred D’Souza

To change one’s life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly. No exceptions. ~William James

Get busy living or get busy dying. Go JESUS!
