Today’s post is advice for life, for everyone, courtesy of Paul Baribeau’s Ten Things. I think I may have shared this before, but it doesn’t matter because this is worth shouting about again. Some of the most life-affirming words I’ve ever read. Get inspired by them and get excited about life again, yo:

Paul Baribeau ten things song lyrics grand ledge

Name ten things you wanna do before you die and then go do them.
Name ten places you really wanna be before you die and then go to them
Name ten books you wanna read before you die and then go read them
Name ten songs you wanna hear again before you die, get all of your friends together and scream them

Because right now all you have is time time time yeah,
But someday that time will run out.
That’s the only thing you can be absolutely certain about.

Think of all the things that are wrong with your life and then fix them
Think of all the things that you love about your life, be thankful you are blessed with them
Think of all the things that hold you back and realize that you don’t need them
Think of all the mistakes you have made in your life, make sure that you never repeat them

Because right now all you have is time time time yeah,
But someday that time will run out.
That’s the only thing you can be absolutely certain about.

Name ten thousand reasons why you never wanna die, go and tell someone who might’ve forgotten
Try to list the endless reasons why it’s good to be alive, and then just smile for awhile about them

Soon the sun will rise and another day will come
Soon enough the sun will set, another day will be gone

And right now all you have is time time time yeah,
But someday that time will run out.
That’s the only thing you can be absolutely certain about.

You can listen to the song here:

It reminds me of all the brilliant Plan-It-X and No Idea Records stuff I fell in love with a lifetime ago. Guaranteed to make you hungry for life again, no matter how squashed you might be feeling.
