Secret of life?

Last week I read this post by The Bloggess which is mostly about trying to sum up life. I really like her version. I also love the offerings in the comments. I added my own “motto” which I have used for quite some time. I heard it in high school in the lyrics of a Faith Hill song.

THE SECRET OF LIFE IS:

THERE AIN’T NO SECRET AND YOU DON’T GET YOUR MONEY BACK

Which I take to mean that you (we) should try to be present instead of worrying about the other shit too much and that you’ve already purchased your ticket so you may as well enjoy the ride. and it’s an E TICKET RIDE for sure, if you let it.

But, in truth, I usually would offer the advice, “Don’t forget to breathe.”

and wear sunblock.

or carry a scarf

if you haven’t made it to sunblock weather as of yet.

I also tend to agree with The Bloggess in that post when she says to bring some bactine.

So after a tad more thought my theory of life advice is:

 

RESPERATE

and

PREPARATE

and also:

BE PREPARED TO BE PRESENT

(insert punctuation as needed)

be prepared, to be present.

Do you have one?
