Today's lesson...heard loud and clear.

I woke this morning to a sinus headache and some very obvious words.
I love when things come through loud and clear.

This quote was on Medium, one of my favorite shows.
"Time is priceless yet it costs us nothing. You can do anything you want with it but you can't own it. You can spend it but you can't keep it. And once you've lost it, there is no getting it back, it's just gone." ~ Allison DuBois

This email from the Universe was in my inbox.

Oh yeah, Reenie, I forgot to tell you...

You get as many "do-overs" as you like. Of course, you never know you're living a "do-over" until it's over.
There are lots of reasons for wanting a "do-over." Most of all, people want another chance to do things they were afraid to do the first time, and to say things they were afraid to say. Oddly enough, it's not their mistakes they want to rework, but their "unused" minutes.
Yeah, pretty nifty, but you should know that it isn't any easier the next time, and because no two ever go exactly the same, the gifts, opportunities, and loves of one, never appear the same way again. Never.
So all in all, it's better to live as if there are no "do-overs," so that you won't need one. But I thought I'd share this with you anyway, to work in the bits about fear, mistakes, and how precious today's opportunities really and truly are.

K-- I get it-- loud and clear. No two-by-four upside the head necessary.

I am off to spend some time snuggling my man, who is home today. and nurse this headache.
