IF TODAY WAS YOUR LAST DAY

My best friend gave me the best advice
he said each day's a gift & not a given right
leave no stone unturned
leave your fears behind& try to take the path less travelled
by that first step you take is the longest stride
if today was your last day
& tomorrow was too late
could you say goodbye to yesterday?
would you leave each moment like your last?
leave old pictures in the past?
donate every dime you had?
if today was your last day
against the grain should be a way of life
what's worth the price is always worth the fight
every second counts 'cause
there's no second try
so live like you're never livin twice
don't take the free ride in your own life
if today was your last day
& tomorrow was too late
could you say goodbye to yesterday?
would you leave each moment like your last?
leave old pictures in the past?
donate every dime you had?
would you call those friends you've never seen?
reminisce old memories?
would you forgive your enemies?
would you find that one your dreaming of?
swear up & down to God above
that you'll finally fall in love?
if today was your last day
if today was your last day
would you make it up by mending a broken heart?
you know it's never too late
to shoot for the stars
regardless of who you are
so do whatever it takes
'cause you can't rewind
a moment in this life
let nothing stand in your way
cause the hands of time are never on your side
if today was your last day
& tomorrow was too late
could you say goodbye to yesterday?
would you leave each moment like your last?
leave old pictures in the past?
donate every dime you had?
would you call those friends you've never seen?
reminisce old memories?
would you forgive your enemies?
would you find that one your dreaming of?
swear up & down to God above
that you'll finally fall in love?
if today was your last day
Lyrics to the song "If today was your last day" by Nickelback.
____________________________________________________________________

Nickelback ROCKS it again. Their music always takes me to a place that I wasn't moments before I cranked up one of their tunes. LOVE them! They have a way of propelling you into logical yet emotional thinking. Their words reach you and reach you deep. This song above (playing on your computer via my playlist right now) is one of my fav's as well as their new one called "Got to be somebody." (2nd song you will hear on my playlist below) I'm off to go turn up the volume with them in my car. I'm running to the mall, to the fabric store to buy all new patterns (more on this later), and to shoot anything I can shoot along the way. I've been cooped up in this house for 4 days now. Today was yet another two hour delay for the kids but they're now back at school. I'm headed out to get a breath of fresh air in the 4 hours I've got to myself. The sun is shining, Nickelback is rockin' it out, I'm feeling creative and ready to dive into something that I have on my mind heavily today. Life is good. I'm off to take advantage of it.

PS...Another great new song to rock out to right now is Kelly Clarkson's new one..."My life would suck without you." (my 3rd song I have on my playlist below) The kids and I were jammin' out to this one last night too. You can listen to the song and view the new video HERE. I've already downloaded it to all the Ipods in our house. Good tunes, good tunes. What would we do without music in life?
Enjoy your day. Ang

You ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those words are what I needed to hear today. I tell you I always have good intentions but somehow the end of the day is here and Ive not accomplished a darn thing and today I have sewn thus far 1/2 dress and finished up another outfit for my daughter. Before the end of the day Im hoping to have finished the outfit and 2 dresses of which were all accomplished today. I just need to get off my fanny and get busy and quit procrastinating...........

Love that song. Ever since I had little girl, I see everything differently now. That little red head angel has taught me how to see things now. As deathly sick as she has been many many times in her short short life, would you believe that she still finds the energy, power watever to smile at me. I don't like to think of today maybe being her last day but it is always in the WAY WAY far back portion of my head. It's almost as though she agrees with you when you said that life was good and to take advantage of it. Thank you once again for posting a post that I really needed to hear at the exact moment that I needed to hear it. You are totally awesome. Oh and good luck on your big change with your clothing line.
