The Simple Aspect of Being.

Services for Real Estate Pros with Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina

Philosophically, I have a pretty simple general take on this gig called life.  Leave it better than you entered it.  While I'm pretty sure if I tipped the scales and died tomorrow, there would be at least two folks other than my immediate family who would attend my funeral and give me a righteous eulogy.  I'm not sure who they would be but that doesn't quite matter ... I don't plan on dying tomorrow.

I wish I could link to songs these days to help express what my lonely fingers type.  Dire Straits "Walk of Life" and anything from Willie Nelson would probably do.   As I sit and type and write as if it really matters at all, I know it does.  It mattered before me, after me, and during me.  Just because I couldn't put the puzzle together doesn't make it any less importante going forward.  And I guess that is what I'm looking for all along, the ability and simple aspect of being.

And Life being better because I was in it.  Looks like I have a long way to go.

That's cool.

Because I DO have a long way to go.  And it's worth the trip.

Jason great words to live by, sometimes it is easier said then done. As I just finished stressing about two of my deals.........forgetting the big picture and the noble goal you mentioned in your post....

Sardi, I think something along the lines of "The gods must be crazy" might be in order.

No song links? I always liked your choice in music that you would include in your posts!

Both morbid and profound.

In the 1968 version of Camelot King Arther was facing his death and the death of his dream he sang:

All any of of can ask is to leave found memories and as you pointed out: "And Life being better because I was in it."

You might also consider some thing less morbid:

Walk of life is cool. How about Black Peter by the Grateful Dead. a little morbid, but I think it fits your theme.

Walk of Life is definitely in my top ten, too.  I have tried to steer clear of too much philosophy lately as people around me are dropping like flies.  January is a very morbid month for older folks.  I think they hold on for Christmas and then pfft.
