I went for a very long walk today ... Day 1 in 2012 .... and listened to about four songs.
That's four songs in 4.6 miles, walking. I must have listened to "Like You'll Never See Me Again" by Alicia Keys about a gazillion times.
Yes, it's about having limited time here and together and it's about appreciating what you may lose.
But it is really about appreciating what you've got. And about living life to its fullest. Enjoying your perfect moments and knowing that "every day we never know."
And I don't want to take for granted
The time you may have here with me
'Cause Lord only knows another day here's not really guaranteed
So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you'll never see me again"
So, my long walk on Day 1, which was to set my intent for the year, helped me set my intent for several things. Two of them:
- Taking long walks and
- Never forgetting the present is a gift.
