"Live each day as if it were your last." Let's be honest, if I knew that today was going to be my last day on earth I would not waste my time cleaning the house or making meals (fast food would be a more convenient option). I would probably sit on my couch, hold my kids, and cry all day. So living a month of this advice would probably result in a disgusting house, obese family members, and emotionally scarred children.
"Work like you don't need the money." I, nor probably about 87% of Americans, would work if we didn't need to. Call it laziness, but that's the cold hard facts. I think a more appropriate phrase would be "Work like you don't want to live under an overpass." Of course, that wouldn't look as cute as a vinyl sign on the mantle.
"Dance like no one's watching." Ugh. Every time I hear this quote I die a little inside. It's cheesy. I dance rarely as it is, but if no one ever, ever watched me dance then I would probably stick to my favorite dance move. Which is the sprinkler. But guess what dance move I do even if people are watching? The sprinkler. Verdict: this quote means nothing to me.
"Life is not measured by the breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away." I've stated this in a previous post but the only time I lost my breath is when I fell out of a tree. And I say my life is not measured by my tree falling incident the summer of 1998.
"Whatever you are be a good one." I actually like this quote, but what if what you were, like, a murderer or something? You've got to be careful with this one.
So my advice to you? Think before you vinyl.
