Waking up with Bill Murray
Watching Charlie Rose show with guest Bill Murray.
Rose asked him what he wanted that he didn't have. Murray said he wanted to wake up better, to Keep an eye on what you do when you wake up.
He went on, Sometimes you think, damn, this pillow feels good, or gee, I wish I were somewhere else. Instead, be appreciative of the gift that waking up is. He mentioned a preacher who said, how about this: You wake up and say, Lord, what do you want me to do today?
Being retired, while its nice to not " have" to get up, I think I need to work on my waking up, too. Having an attitude of gratitude, being excited about what one can do to be of service in this world, is something I also need to work on.
If you live to a hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age. George Burns
