Lykkelig indefra

Hvis jeg skulle leve mit liv om

Dette digt, skulle angiveligt være skrevet af en ældre dame; Nadine Starr, og blev fundet efter hendes død. Jeg ved, ikke om det er den sande historie, men jeg fik det selv engang af en særlig ven. Hver gang jeg genlæser det, minder det mig om, at vi har livet til låns, og skylder os selv og andre at få mest muligt ud af det :

“If I had my life to live over, I’d try to make more mistakes next time. I would relax, I would limber up, I’d be sillier than I have been on this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would be less hygienic. I would take more chances. I would take more trips. I would climb more mountains, swim more rivers, and watch more sunsets. I would burn more gasoline. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones.
You see, I’m one of those people who lives sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I’ve had my moments and if I had my life to live over, I’d have more of them. In fact, I’d have nothing else. Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead each day. I’ve been one of those people who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a rain coat and a parachute. If I had my life to live over, I’d go places and do things and travel lighter than I have.
If I had my life to live over I would start barefoot earlier in the spring & stay that way later in the fall. I would play hooky more. I wouldn’t make such good grades, except by accident. I’d ride more merry-go-rounds. I’d pick more daisies.”
-Nadine Starr
