Once is Enough

We all have one shot at life. (That sounds like a really cheesy ad for an equally cheesy movie.) If you remove the dairy products, however, it IS true... We don't get to shout, "STOP! I screwed this life up big-time, can I start againĀ  with a new one please?" You can however, take a… Continue reading Once is Enough

be anything you want

Be

Humans are such complicated creatures. And we lead complicated lives. They needn't be, but outside influences tend to get in the way of us just being ourselves. Everyone tries to tell us what to be. Be good. Be honest. Be brave. Be a good student. Be a good spouse, parent. Be good at your job.… Continue reading Be

Keep calm and be Crazy.

I love this lady; I think I want to be her when I grow up... I mean IF I grow up... She's totally herself and doesn't care what others think. How refreshing. The last part of the quote really got to me, "This is the oldest you've been, and the youngest you'll ever be again".… Continue reading Keep calm and be Crazy.

Simple Pleasures

With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy? Just add chocolate and it sounds perfect to me! It shouldn't take a lot of money to give us true pleasure in life. Sitting under a tree and reading a book (as long as the ants don't get to me), is one of… Continue reading Simple Pleasures

Get Excited

It seems these days that everyone has seen everything. Information is right at our fingertips and nothing is new or exciting. We're all so jaded. What is there to be excited about? Everything. Personally, I love watching aeroplanes taking off. I know all about the physics of it, but actually seeing something that big and… Continue reading Get Excited

Today

'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' What a powerful thought. If this was your last day on earth, how would you like to spend it? Going to a job you hate? Doing the same things you do every day? Just… Continue reading Today

Believe

Ahh, the power of belief! If you believe in the intrinsic goodness of people you will find it and see it everywhere. However, if you only believe the bad, that's what you're going to find. Your perspective dictates how you see the world and what you get out of it every day. So, just for… Continue reading Believe

One Decision

You are always one decision away from a a totally different life.   What will that decision be? Turn right or left? Take the blue pill or the red? The salad or the hamburger? Going to the gym or lying on the lounge? To speak out about something or stay silent? Every decision you make… Continue reading One Decision
