This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
"…imagine your life a year from now. Two years. Five. Imagine living a healthier life, one in which you don’t look better, but FEEL better. Imagine a life with higher standards. Imagine a life with less clutter, less stuff, fewer distractions. What would it look like? Imagine your life with less — less stress, less debt, less discontent. What would it feel like? Now imagine your life with more — more time, more contribution, more elation. Imagine better, more interesting relationships. Imagine sharing meals and conversations and experiences and smiles with people who have similar interests and values and beliefs as you. Imagine growing with your peer group and your loved ones. Now imagine cultivating your passion until you can’t imagine a day without pursuing it. Imagine creating more than you consume. Imagine giving more than you take. Imagine a consistent commitment to growth. Imagine growing toward your limits and then past your limits and waving back with a smile. Imagine still having problems, but better problems, problems that fuel your growth and excitement, problems you want to face. Imagine getting everything out of the way so you can love the people closest to you…Imagine holding hands and exchanging hugs. Imagine making love with the man or woman you love, unencumbered by the trappings of the noisy world around you, fully in the moment, two bodies, flesh and hearts as one. Imagine making your priorities your Real Priorities. Imagine real success…what you’re imagining is a meaningful life. Not a perfect life, not an easy life, but a simple one…Too often we attempt to hold tightly the life that has already left us, but when we get rid of life’s excess, we discover we’re already perfect, right now, beautiful down to our bone marrow."
This is what I am chasing…
I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success.
Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.
Use your gifts. Live with integrity. Do your best. Be generous. Believe in yourself.
Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.
Challenges are what make life interesting…and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
I am not a product of my circumstances. I am product of my decisions.
It’s me who’s lost. A better person would let her go, but I don’t know how. Without her, I don’t know who I am anymore.
