when you are fully alive…

look at life with more playful eyes…

“…look at life with more playful eyes. Don’t be serious. Seriousness becomes like a blindness. Don’t pretend to be a thinker, a philosopher. Just simply be a human being. The whole world is showering its joy on you in so many ways, but if you are too serious, you cannot open your heart.” — Osho

the opportunity to choose our future…

“At every single moment, we are given the opportunity to choose our future. What we do today will determine what we face next week, next month, or next year. It is at the moment of a particular occurrence that we are called upon to make a choice: Will I do it the way I’ve always done it, or will I do it a different way.” — Iyanla Vanzant

be whoever you want to be…

“…it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

choose to learn from everything in our lives…

”I take solace in knowing that even though my path often is walked three steps forward and two steps back, even that backward motion (sometimes into fear or unconsciousness) is part of the journey teaching me compassion, forgiveness and patience with myself and others. We can choose to learn from everything in our lives – and it is in our nature to want to do just that. May we enjoy the process even in those moments when we are trying to “get somewhere.” ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer from THE INVITATION

The most successful people recognize…

“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.” — NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON

recognize within yourself a hunger for something more…

“. . . .no part of the journey is wasted. Once you recognize within yourself a hunger for something more than just continuing, once you taste even the possibility of touching the meaning enfolded in your life, you can never be completely content with just going through the motions. There is no going back. Learning cannot be undone. The wisdom touched in moments of real intimacy penetrates the soul with knowledge of who and what we are. It transforms us.” ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer from THE INVITATION
