“I turned on the evening news, saw an old man being interviewed, turning a hundred and two today…”

I believe it is impossible to trash on Kenny Chesney’s hit Don’t Blink. Even if you are not a fan of country music, just listening to the lyrics could make you come to realize how powerful the message portrayed is. Those days that are so mundane you feel it is hard to bear are made so much better when you turn on your Pandora account and hear those first few chords sound out. It really makes you think about what you are doing, and how your actions right now will determine your state later on in life. Would you want to look back and find that you have wasted 80 years working yourself into the ground? Or to look around and find that while you were so busy trying to ‘make it,’ that you disregarded your your friends and family and did not build  any solid foundations for lasting relationships? Maybe it would be best to slow down, and appreciate the way your life is right now. Eat healthy, exercise regularly, laugh often. Balance your work with your play. Pay attention to the people in your life. Show them love and listen to what they have to say. Most importantly, love yourself! http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/opening-lines/
