Life Lessons from Jimmy Buffett

In 2015, I did a daily tweet called #LifeLessonsFromJimmyBufett and I felt I needed to bring them back in August 2017 for a month. The lessons still ring true for me. Just little reminders about life, love, and luck. After all, I do have two lyrics tattooed by the man on me as a reminder how to live life.

Below is what I posted on Twitter. Click the above link to see all of August & 2015 if you’d like.

  1. According to my watch the time is now. The past is dead and gone.
  2. Who knows why you start, rediscovering your heart but you do it again and again…
  3. I’m growing older but not up
  4. I’d rather die while I’m living than live while I’m dead.
  5. I think It’s time to check the crab trap of life once more
  6. I know you’re never wastin’ time findin’ the right way home
  7. Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong
  8. I have found me a home and you can have the rest of everything I own
  9. Life is Just a Tire Swing
  10. Just say what you mean, mean what you say
  11. Music is the language of the near and distant stars
  12. If a hurricane doesn’t leave you dead it will make you strong
  13. Take another road to a hiding place disappear without a trace
  14. It’s time to see the world…Grab your bag and take a chance
  15. It’s not the tales of Stephen King that I’ve read, I need protection from the things in my head
  16. I’ve seen too much not to stay in touch with a world full of love and luck
  17. There’s just too much to see waiting in front of me and I know that I just can’t go wrong
  18. Forget that blind ambition and learn to trust your intuition. Plowin’ straight ahead come what may

  20. I took a wrong turn, it was the right turn
  21. You’ve just got to learn from the wrong things you’ve done
  22. I know it’s my own damn fault
  23. If I had to quit tonight, I’d never know if I was wrong or right
  24. Deja deja deja vu, believe it and it will come true. Veja Veja Veja du what works for me might work for you
  25. If you keep living straight from the heart, you will know when to start and to stop
  26. Once you see that no one really wins, then the magic begins
  27. Living large was once the deal, now I watch the stars instead
  28. I’m just tryin’ to get by being quiet and shy in a world full of pushin’ and shove
  29. I don’t have a dream. It’s just sometimes I know that’s the way I’m supposed to go
  30. Some of it’s magic, some of it’s tragic but I had a good life all the way
