I loved this last time.. and love it still
Written by Pastor Bob Moorehead (not George Carlin)
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but... narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.
Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.

Well said and true .. worth a read 💜
We all screw up, we all fail, we all do horribly embarrassing things we hope never will be discussed in public, but we should never let our worst failures defin...e who we are… and who we can be.
Why do you believe you are the only one who has failed?
Why do you still cling to a mistake you made so many years ago?
Why do you believe you are the only one who has lost a job, failed in a relationship or made a bad career choice?
We all fail. We all make mistakes
the world can only laugh at. We all stumble in life.
But why should you be punished
forever for a mistake you made in the past?
Failures, mistakes, bad judgement
are part of life for anyone who has a life.
Never made a mistake in life? Then you have never had a life.
There is risk in chasing a life worth living,
but there is no life worth living without risk.
You tried, you didn't get it right, now move on and live.
We fear the future, but for most of
us it's history that destroys our life.
We let our past destroy our present
and deny us any life beyond today.
We are not who we were yesterday.
We are who we choose to be today.
Who we were has nothing to do with who we can be.
You have no past, you only have a future yet to be created.
