There's no magic pill to make us immortal, sad but true. I think I have finally grasped what "the rest of your life" really means. I've heard the phrase time and time again, but it never really registered until recently. I can't really describe to you how I feel, now that the reality of the phrase has sunk in. I will tell you, when you reach this realization you have a keen awareness of what is truly important in life, and what is not.
"Change your thinking and you change the world." This was said by the late Norman Vincent Peale. I can tell you from personal experience that he was spot on. When we challenge our mindset and realize that just because that is the way it has always been doesn't make it accurate, we suddenly have an understanding that maybe, just maybe, we can make a difference in this crazy world we live in.
