stay hungry. stay foolish.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”

“Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

RIP Steve Jobs, the Willy Wonka of Electronics

are you willing to sacrifice the comfort of your known world for infinite possibilities?

“This life has an infinite number of potentials for you; we live in a made to order Universe. Whatever you believe is possible for you and take consistent action upon is what becomes your reality. If you keep telling yourself that your dream isn’t possible, you will come to find that you are absolutely right.  

But my friend, if you draw a line in the sand and tell the Universe that your dreams are a reality RIGHT NOW, and take action as if that were the case, you will come to find that you are absolutely right. The question is how long can you live in the fire of your dreams manifestation?The price you have to pay to live your dream is facing your deepest darkest fear and the reward you receive from this courageous act is the realization that your fear was an illusion and that your dreams were always real.So I ask you, my friend, are you willing to go there? Are you willing to sit in fire and sacrifice the comfort of your known world for the potential of something amazing, new and unknown? Don’t you want to find out what’s on the other side of your fear?

Living in fear is so last season, if you want to be happy and really live your dream you have to take a stand and just put yourself out there. You might fail, yes indeed – but, you might, you just might succeed too! Don’t you want to find out? Either way your life will never be the same… Can you handle it?”

28 Days with a Grateful Heart ♥ Day 27

Compassion.

When you meet compassion it’s as thought a warmth comes over you and you can feel the light surrounding the space. It’s a special occasion when you are graced with compassion, and not one to take lightly. Grateful for the gift of others meeting me with compassion and grateful that I have the potential to be compassionate with myself (always a work in progress!)

Be kind to yourself and be kind to others – meet life with a sense of compassion.

The Universe is awesome; Karma’s even better.

Thankful for moments where you have complete faith in something, and that certain something shows up! Faith takes work, it takes fearlessness, and it takes you to grand places if you’re willing to step into it. Take my word, letting go and stepping up is worth every moment. Faith is sweet + soft.

This Universe of ours should not go without big thanks, EVERYDAY!

I am grateful for free donuts!

I was going to tweet about the Tim Hortons lady with awful blue eye shadow… but I didn’t and then I won my first free donut on Roll Up The Rim. Karma!!

28 Days with a Grateful Heart ♥ Day 24

I am grateful for humbling moments.

Moments where you feel the greatness of the world around you are moments I do not take for granted. Nature tends to do it for me, but there are also quiet and small moments when life jolts you and throws it all into perspective. I’m grateful for those immense moments of grandeur and the tiny, seemingly insignificant moments that can catapult you into eating a slice of humble pie (if you’re willing to look).

I’m thankful for the moments that humble me.

I am grateful for the abstract.

ORIGIN Middle English : from Latin abstractus, literally ‘drawn away,’ past participle of abstrahere, from ab- ‘from’ + trahere ‘draw off.’

The abstract has a magical way of drawing us out of the ordinary, obscuring our understanding, and pushing our capacity to see past the everday. The abstract is kind of extraordinary!! I love being tested, love being drawn in, and love seeing the ordinary in an extraordinary fashion!!
