In Others' Words: Life

"There is just one life for each of us: our own."~ Euripides, ancient writer 

Confession: I've wasted too much time watching other people live their lives. Or wishing I could live someone else's life. Reality? At this point in my life, I'm not dancing on Broadway--although I do dance in the kitchen with my husband. And I'm not marrying a prince--but really, who wants the pressure of all the paparazzi? I won't be singing on American Idol and I'd be voted off the island on Survivor.
I have my life to live--and I like it, thank you very much. Most days. I'm not too thrilled today, but that's because my dishwasher continues to act up. Euripides' words remind me that I can focus on someone else's life--or I can take care of my own.

Hope your dishwasher starts behaving, Beth. :) Love the quote. And I had no idea you had dreams of dancing on Broadway!

Melissa, looks like there's a new dishwasher in my future.
And you should see me whenever I've gone to see a Broadway musical. I have to control the urge to go dancing and singing down the streets afterward. Now that would be crowd-stopper for sure! LOL!

Wise words indeed! I don't want to regret not living the life God blessed me with!

Faith, I'm with you on that! I hate to think what I would have missed!
