Be present. Make love. Make coffee. Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation. Buy a plant, water it. Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed. Have a smart mouth, and quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Go out in the rain. Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Know your worth. Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Let go of what doesn’t make you happy. Grow.
If you start living for the smallest reasons, that’s when you know you’re really living, the smell of rain after a thunderstorm, the shades of pavements when it’s autumn, the harvest season and the unspoken competition to pick the freshest tomatoes, the mediocre midnights and the color of the sunsets, the smell of bakeries early in the morning, the frosty breeze of the fast-approaching winter, the warmth of oven when baking christmas cookies, the thickness of paper when flipping through magazine pages, the smell of new books and new clothes and new things.
When you start looking at things, really really looking, you’ll start living. Because then you’ll understand how it is to really be a HUMAN in this world full of people.
LEARN TO BE A HUMAN. APPRECIATE & LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR YOURSELF.
Hard times are unavoidable. They pop up when we least expect it, when we’re just not ready. But it’s important to take comfort in the fact that it can’t and won’t go on forever. As you forge ahead, remind yourself that you’re only getting stronger with each challenge you are presented with.
The nice thing about rain is that it always stops. Eventually. -EEYORE.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. This side of Asia must be seen. Bali is beautiful. This series of CNBC Make it is so much entertaining & informative. I may do the same thing for a while. Nothing soothes my soul like a sandy ass beach.)
