When anyone calls my "seizerepparttar moment" friend, she is open to adventure and available for trips. She keeps an open mind on new ideas. Her enthusiasm for life is contagious. You talk with her for five minutes, and you're ready to trade your bad feet for a pair of roller blades and skip an elevator for a bungee cord.

My lips had not touched ice cream in 10 years. I love ice cream. It's just that I might as well apply it directly to my stomach with a spatula and eliminaterepparttar 141071 digestive process. The other day, I stoppedrepparttar 141072 car and bought a triple-decker. If my car had hit an iceberg onrepparttar 141073 way home, I would have died happy.

Now... Go on and have a nice day. Do something you WANT to -- not something on your SHOULD DO list.

If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?!!?

Have you ever watched kids playing on a merry go round or listened torepparttar 141074 rain lapping onrepparttar 141075 ground? Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight or gazed atrepparttar 141076 sun intorepparttar 141077 fading night? Have you checked outrepparttar 141078 planet Mars, which is now so close to us? Do you run through each day onrepparttar 141079 fly? When you ask "How are you?" Do you hearrepparttar 141080 reply?

Whenrepparttar 141081 day is done, do you lie in your bed withrepparttar 141082 next hundred chores running through your head? Ever told your child, "We'll do it tomorrow." And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch? Let a good friendship die? Just call to say "Hi"? When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift... Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Take it slower. Hearrepparttar 141083 music beforerepparttar 141084 song is over.
