Every birthday is a gift. Every day is a gift.
To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s-land, to experience each moment as it comes.
For what it’s worth…it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start 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. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Principles are the territory. Values are maps. When we value correct principles, we have truth — a knowledge of things as they are.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Stephen R. Covey
We’re so trapped that any way we could imagine to escape would be just another part of the trap. Anything we want, we’re trained to want.
