Friday Photo: Ebb and Flow

with 2 comments

Stormy water hits a calm beach.

Nature is about balance; the coming and going, the ebb and flow.

This got me thinking about the ebb and flow of opportunities for risk that come and go every single day.

Every. Single. Day.

We are inundated with opportunities. The question is what we do with them.

It’s this simple: If I never try anything, I never learn anything. If I never take a risk, I stay where I am. If I go ahead and do it, that affects how much I continue wanting to do it. When I hold myself back, I trade appearances for the opportunity to find out what I am like. – Hugh Prather

Life is Too Short

with one comment

Good words from director and  author of Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi:

Life is too short and we cannot spoil it. I don’t have 300 years in front of me. So I just do the things that I really want to do at the moment because that’s the only way you will do them well. If you don’t believe in yourself, it won’t work.

Ideas come when you:

say yes more often.
get outside.
drink coffee.
are open to inspiration.
dream.
celebrate the ordinary.
love.
surround yourself with creatives.
are intentional.
live passionately.

Unplug?

with 2 comments

Yes.

We are depriving ourselves of every opportunity for disconnection. And our imaginations suffer the consequences.

Traveling Is…

“Traveling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying, “I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.” – Lisa St. Aubin de Teran
