A brilliant repost for today:
1. Start living.
Don’t simply exist in this world, grab life’s full potential by the horns
and ride it out. Dare life to be all it can be. Make it a memorable,
gripping account of accomplishment. Make it a thrilling, challenging,
bold adventure. Make life a passionate, enduring, poetic romance.
Whatever it is you decide to do with your life, LIVE it! Get going!
Move forward, aim high, plan your takeoff. Don’t just sit on the
runway. Adjust your attitude and gain some altitude.
2. Start taking chances that feel right.
Life will try to break you sometimes; nothing and no one can
completely protect you from it. Remaining alone in your comfort
zone won’t either, for endless, stagnant solitude will also break you
You’re human. You have to love. You have to feel. You have to
strive. You are here to risk your heart by putting it into something
you believe in. If you avoid taking these chances, one thing is certain,

3. Start indulging in meaningful challenges.
What a true blessing it is that there is always work to be done.
Because the real value of any accomplishment is not in the end result,

state is by working mindfully through a meaningful challenge. Such a
challenge might seem somewhat overwhelming when you first
encounter it, yet as you progress through it, you transform the work
from overwhelming to fulfilling. Read The 4-Hour Workweek.
4. Start nurturing your real family.
Family is built with love; it’s not determined by marriage certificates,
divorce papers, and formal adoption documents. Families grow from
the heart, through mutual love and respect. The only time family
becomes nullified is when the ties in the heart are cut. If you cut the
ties, these people are not your family. If you build the ties, these
people are your family. So build ties with the right people and
nurture them with love.
5. Start making time for YOU.
There is objective time meant for focused work, but also subjective
time where the pulse of your life breathes – your relationships, your
awareness, your hobbies, etc.
So find the time – the time to read, to smell the flowers, to take a walk
in the wilderness, to share a laugh, to learn a fun craft, to try a new
recipe, to explore somewhere new, to really be with someone you
love, to paint your dreams, or even to just do nothing and relax for a
Find time for YOU.
