How do you expect to be free, if you are afraid? We have two choices in life we can be a participant or a spectator. At some point, we must be willing to sail against the winds. To challenge the status quo. To live a life that is most aligned with our intuition and authentic self. I have learned to invest less in materials and more in people, minds, knowledge, wisdom, growth, serving others and books.
I have also come to understand on my journey that most lessons have a price. Asking questions denotes that you are in search of the truth. Our societal inability to ask timely and critical questions has become a substantial cultural weakness. We spend too much time today talking at each other instead of talking with each other.
Sometimes in life, you have to go backward to go forward. One of our greatest possessions is our attitude. Every strength is a weakness while every weakness is a strength. Our dreams must be bigger than our fears. While our actions must be louder than our words. Do less sitting and more standing in every respect of your life. The voices inside your head will shape what you see, think and feel.
Today is a good day to have a good day. There are better versions of yourself just around the corner. I have come to learn there is no manual for this phenomenon called life. So let go of the past. Plan strategically for the future. But more importantly, do not forget to celebrate the present. Every day is a unique opportunity for search and discovery. There is truly no finish line. So drink plenty of water and be sure to take your vitamins as you navigate your journey. My favorite vitamin is kindness. Be kind to everyone you meet, including yourself!
