This Respectable X-Hooker Disagrees Respectfully


A Respectable X-Hooker Respectfully Disagrees With a Positive Quote

TODAY’S A Better Me Quote

“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.”

Michael Landon

I disagree bc I think an in-your- face awareness has the potential to be far too cripplng rather than motivating. We underestimate the gift of repression and denial. Let’s appreciate the ability our minds have to shield us from ourselves. Some things are true, and we know the truth, but to be aware of a true life horror to such an extent that fear drives us–a bad idea. I bet Michael Landon said this after his diagnosis of terminal pancreatic cancer and not during an ordinary day.

Lesson–The word motivational is an adjective not a fact. One need not accept everything labelled as positive
