I Just got some good advice from a friend.....

...and I wanted to pass it on.

Instructables started me on this road, so the friend was only reminding me of what I have been living since I started posting here:

"If Today Was Your Last Day"

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day's a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day

Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you'll never live it twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it's never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
'Cause you can't rewind a moment in this life
Let nothin' stand in your way
Cause the hands of time are never on your side

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?

Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day...

I prefer "Time" (completely incomprehensible video, but this is the one where they missed "oh well lucky I know how to read braille")

AH ! now that I am home, I understand.....I wasn't able to view or hear it at work.....nicely done.
Goodhart (author)  lemonie7 years ago
Aye, I don't have to be able to view it (here at work) to remember the story line of this one (I must have seen every TZ episode at least 20 times or more) :-) It's not FAIR, it's JUST NOT FAIR !!!!
Did you see the Futurama parody? From that point he says "oh well my eyes aren't that bad, I can still read the large-print books" (then his eyeballs fall out) "oh well good that I learned braille" (then his hands fall off)... How did that guy manage to marry (do I need to add that woman)? L

The Futurama parody I remember, but hadn't made the connection until now. He was mousy in a way, and she was dominant....the dominant almost always find someone they can manipulate without much complaint. ;-)
How funny, I was listening to the same song yesterday...

I just recently ran into it when someone sent it to me ....
