How Much Time Is Left On Your Ride?

Guest Post By Archie McNab

The post is going to be a little different today. Something happened this past week that has made me pause and think, and I am telling you this story because maybe it will do the same for you. Or maybe not. We are all different, God bless that fact.


This past week, one of my co-workers passed away. It was a complete surprise. She wasn’t quite forty and in good health from all appearances, not that that makes any real difference. So far it seems as though a lung infection could have been the culprit. It could just as easily have been a heart attack, a bullet, a vehicle accident or a bolt of lightning. By and large, we don’t get to choose what time we exit the big stage, nor the method of our departure.

What About YOUR Ride?

And really you see, it isn’t the going or the how that matters. It’s the time that we get to spend on stage. It’s too short you see. Too short by far. So I decided to sit down and write a few things out that I would like to do, just in case I don’t have forever on the stage either. If I was a betting man, I would bet against myself being able to stay on here forever too. After all, no one else has and all the signals point to the fact that we are here for a mere blink of an eye in the life of the Universe. Feel free to use my list, add to it, make your own.

There has been a lot said lately about the so called ‘Bucket List.’ I am not going to dis that in any way, shape or formBucket list because I believe that it has a place and is something that everyone should aspire to completing. Just don’t wait for the last few months (or even years) to do it. I am thinking of things that are perhaps less grandiose, although no less important and so much more immediate. I am going to call my list the ‘Today I Shall’ List. Here’s what’s on it:

Today I Shall,

  • Wear my finest clothes, use my best perfume, drink my best liquor
  • Stop along the highway and take that picture of whatever makes me smile
  • Tell someone I love them, even if it is just myself
  • Sit on a new mowed lawn, close my eyes and inhale
  • Stand for a moment and marvel at a mountain, the ocean, a waterfall, a tree
  • Eat my dessert first
  • Order the double dipped chocolate cone
  • Find an empty road and drive too fast
  • Laugh at myself and the stuff I worry about
  • Play the music I love best (and as loud as I want)
  • Not worry about my hair, make-up, clothes
  • Do something for someone that is so kind it moves me to tears
  • Teach a child something
  • Carve my initials and date into a tree
  • Plant a tree
  • Watch whatever the hell I want on TV
  • Call a friend I haven’t spoken to in forever
  • Forgive someone that I hold a grudge against and move on
  • Take an hour of the day just for me and do whatever (or as little) as I want
  • Thank someone who made you feel good

Dedicated to Serena RIP
