We Only Pass This Way Once

My grandmother had this posted on her wall and I asked her to send it to me many years ago:

Oscar Wilde said, "Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative."
So stop getting up at 6:05. Get up at 5:06.
Walk a mile at dawn.
Find a new way to drive to work.
Switch chores with your spouse next Saturday.
Buy a wok.
Study wildflowers.
Stay up alone all night.
Read to the blind.
Start counting brown-eyed blondes.
Subscribe to an out-of-town paper.
Canoe at midnight.
Don't write to your Congressman; take a whole scout troop to see him.
Learn to speak Italian.
Teach some kid the thing you do best.
Listen to two hours of uninterrupted Mozart.
Take up aerobic dancing.
Leap out of that rut.
Savor life. Remember, we pass this way only once.

This could relate to "more, better, or different" or "life is impermanence". You decide.
