The late show with Stephen Colbert is one of my favourite shows. In this short bit when he was interviewing VP Joe Biden was talking about his life, his vice-presidency and the chances of him running in 2020. He’s a gorgeous guy and the conversation is all compelling stuff, but hidden in the middle of their friendly chat (5:42) was a real diamond of a line ~ something Biden’s dad used to tell him,


“It’s a lucky person that gets up in the morning, puts both feet on the floor, knows what they’re about to do, and thinks it still matters“.


I love that line. It’s great advice to live by and a great purpose to seek out. Imagine how it might feel each day to wake up with a spring in your step and that kind of drive and determination in your heart.


Not a bad thing to aim for…
