Having the time of my life in Sri Lanka

I can’t begin to tell you how awesome this trip was. I am going to let you watch this video to hopefully let you have a glimpse of the wonderful build week – it’s a short edit of the footage Dad and I shot throughout that first week:

To read about the other Habitat build I went on in Cambodia back in 2009, check about this post.

Here are some photos from the Habitat for Humanity build in Negombo and from various places we visited after that:

The song for this post is “One Life” by James Morrison.

When I was a young boy
I was living for the moment
The world was wide open
I had every choice
But with so many choices
I just didn’t know what to do now

All I say is just forget it
If you tell me I’ll regret it
Just let it be what it is
‘Cause it’s so easy to say
If I knew yesterday what I know today
Where would I be tomorrow

I won’t let my soul slide away
I’d do whatever it takes
‘Cause this time’s only borrowed

I got one life, one life, one life
And I’m gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life
And I’m gonna live it right

My daddy sat me down
He said “Son, it’s probably time to start making some plans”
And I said “No, not right now”
With so many choices
I just didn’t know what to do now

All I say is just forget it
If you tell me I’ll regret it
Let it be what it is
‘Cause it’s so easy to say
If I knew yesterday what I know today
Where would I be tomorrow

I won’t let my soul slide away
I’d do whatever it takes
‘Cause this time’s only borrowed

I got one life, one life, one life
And I’m gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life
And I’m gonna live it right

You say the more you think
You know what’s right
The less you do
What you feel inside
So I won’t pretend that I always know
I just follow my heart wherever it goes
And I may not always get it right
But at least I’m living ’cause I’ve only got this…

One life, one life, one life
I’ve got this one life

If I knew yesterday what I know today
Where would I be tomorrow
I won’t let my soul slide away
I’d do whatever it takes
‘Cause this time’s only borrowed

I got one life, one life, one life
And I’m gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life
And I’m gonna live it right

When I’m an old man
Hope I’ll be rocking in my chair
Smiling to myself
I’ll tell my baby girl
You only got one life
So make sure you live it right
