Connecting Paulo Coelho ‘The Alchemist’ with Singer Frank Sinatra… Connecting “In my Life, better to be sorry than safe” with emotional crooning of “My Way”

Just chewed Paulo Coelho’s thought for the day “In my Life, better to be sorry than safe”…. and in reflex thought came alive Frank Sinatra’s famous rendering of My Way”

Coelho thinks it !… Sinatra sings it !… Wow !

You can’t get a Six till you roll the Die or two Sixes till you roll the Dice…. so take the risk to live your ‘Dream’

Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” says it beautifully…Sing along with Sinatra on Youtube at It’s got over 5.6 million views !

The Lyrics are below too… Lovely… they have been co-written by another favourite singer of mine, Paul Anka

And now, the end is near,
And so I face the final curtain.
My friends, I’ll say it clear;
I’ll state my case of which I’m certain.

I’ve lived a life that’s full –
I’ve travelled each and every highway.
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets? I’ve had a few,
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course –
Each careful step along the byway,
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew,
When I bit off more than I could chew,
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way.

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried,
I’ve had my fill – my share of losing.
But now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that,
And may I say, not in a shy way –
Oh no. Oh no, not me.
I did it my way.

For what is a man? What has he got?
If not himself – Then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way.

Yes, it was my way.

Wow !… I’ve crooned it thrice already this Sunday evening along with Frank Sinatra…. loud and passionately….Try it !… you’ll feel warm and good !
