Consider The Roses
I drove by a funeral today.
Forty or so people were crowded around a tombstone with their heads down.
I was driving my mom’s convertible, blasting the Oceans 13 soundtrack, and until a moment before, smiling my ass off.
If I were one of the mourners seeing me drive by with the top down and music blasting, I’d probably think, “Jeez, look at that guy. I hope he knows how good he’s got it right now.”
Trust me man, I do. I’ve been exactly where you are.
So, dear reader, do you know how good you’ve got it right now?
I hope so.
Maybe this is a good time to take inventory of your prevailing thoughts.
Because, as much as I hope this doesn’t happen, you might one day find yourself praying for the “problems” you may now have.
In other words, if you have time to stop and smell the roses, do so.
Rip mirrors off the walls, chop the red petals into dust with a razor blade, and snort the fine, flowery lines with a rolled up C-note.
There really isn’t time for anything else and this is the youngest you’ll ever be.
This. Is. The. Youngest. You’ll. Ever. Be
