add more life to your years…

“Experience. Dream. Risk. Close your eyes, jump, and enjoy the free fall. Choose exhilaration over predictability. Choose growth over comfort. Choose potential over safety. Wake up to the magic of life.

Make friends with your intuition. Trust your gut. Discover the beauty of uncertainty. Know yourself fully before you make promises to others. Make lots of mistakes so that you will know how to discern what you truly need.

Learn when to hold on and when to let go. Love hard and often and without reservation. Seek knowledge. Open yourself to possibility. Keep your heart honest, your head high, and your spirit free. Embrace your darkness along with your light. Be wrong every once in a while, and be okay with it.

Awaken to the brilliance in ordinary moments. Live the truth no matter what the cost. Own your reality without apology. See goodness in the world. Be Bold. Be Fierce. Be grateful. Be wild, crazy, and gloriously free.

Go now and add more life to your years.”8 Ways to Add More Life to Your Years

push the human race forward…

“Here’s To The Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world – are the ones who DO!” – Steve Jobs, Apple Computers Campaign
