One of the most valuable skills in life is knowing when to take chances and stay in the fray and knowing when the smart move is to limit risk and walk away. That hint of free will feels good in this crazy game of life.

Enjoy the very danceable rhythm -- a line dance shuffle, perhaps.
And, the chorus is just asking for you to sing-along. Go for it!

Here’s a deep
philosophical thought
Some dreams are worth keeping
others are not

There’s a sweet spot of knowing
when to stop or keep going
When to give it your best
or give it a rest

I like a quest
a reach for the top
I want to drink in life
to the very last drop

And though the Fates deal our cards
We can decide
When to hold ‘em or when to fold ’em
ooh, that’s wise

Hold on, Hold on
Hold on, Hold on
until it’s time to let go
