"It's How You Live"


Sharing some inspiring words from an inspiring song....


“It’s How You Live”
“Wake up to the sunlight with your windows open....
Don’t hold in your anger or leave things unspoken.
Wear your red dress, use your good dishes...
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes.
And have what you want
But want what you have...
And don’t spend your life looking back.
Turn up the music, turn it up loud.
Take a few chances, let it all out.
‘Cause you won’t regret it...
Looking back from where you have been.
‘Cause it’s not who you knew 
And it’s not what you did, it’s how you live.
So, go to the ballgames and go to the ballet...
And go see your folks, more than just on the holidays.
Kiss all your children, dance with your wife,
Tell your husband you love him...every night.
Don’t run from the truth
‘Cause you can’t get away, oh no,
Just face it and you'll be okay.
Turn up the music, turn it up loud.
Take a few chances, let it all out.
‘Cause you won’t regret it...
Looking back from where you have been.
‘Cause it’s not who you knew 
And it’s not what you did, it’s how you live.
Oh, wherever you are and wherever you've been...
Now is the time to begin!
So, give to the needy and pray for the grieving,
Even when you don’t think that you can.
‘Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you...
So, think of your fellow man.
Make peace with God..
And make peace with yourself, oh yeah....
‘Cause in the end....there's nobody else.
Turn up the music, turn it up loud.
Take a few chances, let it all out.
‘Cause you won’t regret it...
Looking back from where you have been.
‘Cause it’s not who you knew 
And it’s not what you did, it’s how you live. 
‘Cause it’s not who you knew
And it’s not what you did...
it’s how you live.”
