live like it's heaven on earth

It's Yellow :) today i'm gonna tell you a story...a nice story that i've read some times ago,

i forgot the detail, but i think it's like this :

So, there was a good and talented carpenter who was ready to retire from his current job. He told his boss of his plan to leave the business and try to live a more relax and enjoy his life. The boss was sorry to see his good and talented worker go.

But, before the carpenter gone, he asked if the carpenter could build just one more house, consider it's a personal favor from the boss to the carpenter. The carpenter said yes...but when he is working, his heart wasn't there at his work. He worked with lack of craftmanship, lack of attention to details, and he used inferior materials. When he finished his work, the boss came and inspect his work, and suddenly the boss asked for the key of this house, and the carpenter gave it to him.

Surprisingly, the boss handed back the key to the carpenter and said
"This is your house now, it's my gift to you"...
The carpenter was shocked, he build this house without putting is heart to his work, and without knowing that he was building his own house. If he had only known it, he would've done it all so differently. So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then with a shock we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we’d do it much differently.
We cannot go back. You are the carpenter for your own life. Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Life is a do-it-yourself project. Your attitudes and the choices you make today, build the “house” you live in tomorrow. Build wisely!

"Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt.
Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth."
