"Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he’s dead,"
Day 147. The Valentine One.
It's Valentine's Day, and trust me, I'm not usually the schmaltzy type. I find forced romance to be rediculous, but I do think the idea of refocusing on who you love is a beautiful thing. And so, because I can't help myself, today I'd like to thank Tom Higgenson, the lead singer of the group, "Plain White T's" for writing the song "1234". I randomly heard this song a few days ago and when I saw the video, maybe it was the mood I was in, but it struck me as one of the sweetest things I've seen in a long time. So, thus ends this entry - please spend 3:38 watching this video - be sure to read the WORDS...its what love can be about, in all its forms!
(and let's hope that now the radio doesn't play the heck out of this song, thus ruining it ;) )
Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing how little we realize the gift that is every day and every person. We wait till a funeral to say nice things, we wait till we are "old" to regret what we never said or did. We wish we didn't work so much. We lament what we have lost. Why don't we learn?
So here we go - Ali's Project 365. 365 days of appreciating people. There are a few rules...there's no order in how I present folks to you, I may know some better than others, identifying characteristics may or may not be included - the goal here is to really look at the good in each and every person and let THAT person know that they are loved - NOW.
I'll try to stay day to day but I can tell you now there will be catch up times...this is just my little attempt to put a little something positive out there, every day, and perhaps, in the process get some more positive energy out there in the world.
