If I had my life over again

The well known columnist Erma Bombeck once wrote: ‘If I had my life to live over, I would invite friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained. I would take the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth. I would burn the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage. I would sit on the lawn with my children and not worry about grass stains. I would go to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the world would fall apart if I wasn’t there for the day. I would never buy anything just because it was practical. There would be more “I love yous” and more “I’m sorrys”, but mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute, look at it, really see it and really live it.’
That’s good advice, and the best part of it is we don’t need a second shot at life to take it.
