Great message! I think that is absolutely true- our lives our now, during the journey not when we are finally thin or finally fit or finally wearing that new dress. It's about enjoying every day, every minute as they come.

I couldn't get the link to work, but the words are awesome. I love it when artists can capture such wisdom. Thank you for sharing this!

I don't know about all of you, but sometimes I look for the serendipity in life to nudge me, or confirm for me that I am heading in the right direction. I had just re-read some of Dr. Gould's articles, waiting for my book to arrive today (it didn't, yet). I moved on to clean the house, and slipped in a CD by the Chenille Sisters that I had gotten for Christmas, and had not yet opened. The first song slayed me, and made me cry. Maybe it will inspire you too.

The lyrics in part:
May I suggest, may I suggest to you… May I suggest this is the best part of your life?
May I suggest This time is blessed for you This time is blessed and shining almost blinding bright.
Just turn your head. and you’ll begin to see The thousand reasons that were just beyond your sight The reasons why, why I suggest .. Why I suggest to you This is the best part of your life
There is a world that's been addressed to you Addressed to you, intended only for your eyes A secret world, like a treasure chest to you Of brightest scenes & brilliant dreams that mesmerize A lovely trusting smile, a tiny baby's hands The million stars that fill the churning skies at night Oh I suggest, oh I suggest to you Oh I suggest this is the best part of your life
There is a hope, that’s been expressed in you. The hope of seven generations, maybe more. This is the faith, that they invest in you Is that you’ll do one better than was done before
Inside you now, inside you understand Inside you know it’s yours to finally set right. And I suggest, and I suggest to you And I suggest this is the best part of your life ~~~~~~~
