Carpe diem…

These are the words that started my day today:

 

It’s never too late to be who you could have been. It’s a matter of switching gears; never looking back, and BECOMING the person today that you always knew you were capable of being. Entertain every thought, say every word, and make every decision from their point of view. Walk the way they would walk, dress the way they would dress, and spend your free time the way they would spend theirs. Choose the friends they would choose, eat the meals they would eat, and love and appreciate yourself the way they would. These steps MUST come in order for there to be change. There’s no other option, no other way. But since this person is who you REALLY are deep down, this makes this task a bit easier. You just have to stop being who you AREN’T.

 

I woke up thinking about my husband…he’s waking up every day to work in a grueling environment that relentlessly challenges his mind, body and spirit in ways he’s never experienced before.   Like he told me, he signed up for it, and there is no option, no other way than just to get up and DO IT. Whether you feel like it or not…actually, especially when you don’t feel like it! The amount of effort you give determines the amount of joy you receive. Not really a news flash, is it? It’s LIFE.  

There’s another quote that stays with me: “Most people fail because they sacrifice what they want most for what they want in the moment.”

We are stronger than we think we are. We can do more, endure more, triumph through more than we think we can.

Easy? No. Possible? Yes. Claim and inhabit that uncharted territory. It is the gateway to a more joyful and satisfying life. And it all starts by just getting up and doing it.
