In Honor of St Paddy’s Day

This song is a celtic song with bagpipes with a video that pays tribute to our men and women who serve. 

Every time I listen to it, it gives me goosebumps.

The song was written by an Irishman after his wife died of cancer.  It was also a tribute to his uncle who died in WWI.

The reason this song is so moving for me besides the fact that the singers and songwriters emotions pour out through the song is simple.  It’s reflecting what it would be like to face your mortality.

At the risk of sounding morbid, we are all going to die.  Accept that and decide to live.  Don’t wait for tomorrow.  Live right now! 

We don’t know when that moment will come. 

  • Do something meaningful with your life right now! 
  • Tell someone important you love them! 
  • Tell a friend how much you appreciate them! 
  • Go work on that book you’ve been putting off forever
  • Plan that dream vacation
  • Go for a walk or a run
  • Go enjoy the beauty of a tree
  • Read something interesting
  • Listen to your favorite song

LiveIt’s a choice

Happy St. Paddy’s Day all!  Be safe!

    Mike, happy St. Patrick’s day to you too! I like your living the moment list. That is liberating. Let me give you an example. Before we went to fight the war in Iraq in 1990, Gen Schwarzkopf mandated that we write letters and do some of the things you mentioned on the letter…tell someone you love him or her, etc. These actions gives us freedom, knowing that we have been true to others. Now, we can go on with our life to fulfill our purpose, holding nothing back. Always motivated, lugo
