It's a nice song; both wistful and defiant, a summing-up of a life lived on one's own terms.
And it has nothing to do with my life.
Now, right here, I'd like to say, "I didn't live it my way; I lived life His way."
But I think God would look askance at that kind of tall tale. In places I tried, but I didn't live it His way, either.
I just lived, pretty well reacting to both obstacles and opportunities. I failed way more than I achieved, and there's a lot of places where there are no footprints on the sand of my life-path.
See, God was carrying me because I had both feet in my mouth.
