My Invincible Summer

"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour." ~ William Blake

Your daily life can be any experience you want it to be everyday. The choices you make, the thoughts you think, the actions you do or don't take. And also how you interpret things you encounter, such as how you hear, see, taste, smell, and feel. We are all unique and different in so many ways I can't describe. We may all hear the same thing, but do we all listen? We may all see the same thing, but we do not all see it in the same frame of mind. 

Wasting Time..Worrying & Living in the Future... 

We spend our whole lives worrying about the future, planning for the future, trying to predict the future, as if figuring it out will cushion the blow. But the future is always changing. The future is the home of our deepest fears and wildest hopes. But one thing is certain when it finally reveals itself. The future is never the way we imagined it. ~ Shonda Rhimes

You, yes! you reading this post, (first off, Thank You for taking time to read my blog, you are in inspiration to me in so many ways). Do you sometimes question yourself or wonder if you are living your life to the fullest or maybe could be doing something different? I know I do. Maybe wonder about being  happier, or maybe different job, or live in a different area, or wonder if this is what God had planned for you? But with all these questions, we cannot have all the answers at once. Instead we should stop worrying and start believing, trusting, and living.

"Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." ~ Howard Thurman

Live by this quote and strive to do what makes you feel "alive inside". Then you will not only feel happier and more alive, but you may impact and inspire all those around you.  Show the world what inspires you, what motivates you, what "drives/fuels" you, and live it!

We mostly work to live... Until we live to work?

Life should be about happiness for us while we experience our brief time on earth. Why do we concentrate and spend so much money and time on earthly possessions, working to spend money, then spending money to buy happiness? I encourage you to look at your purchases (other than food & utilities) do you really need all of this for happiness? So many other cultures and people in other countries the world get by with so much less than what we have each day in the United States. Think more often, do we always need more to eat, another helping? really? or more spending, buying, or more to endulge in? Don't buy your happiness, instead create it! Create it with what your given or what you already have and also with who you have around you. If you are only happy when you have rich earthly possessions, then you are poor mentally & morally. 

Your true wealth in this world, is how much you would have if they lost all of your money. Something money can never buy.  (Love & Happiness)

I encourage You to get back to working to "live" instead of living to "work"

Earthly possessions can bring you joy or happiness, but it's not true happiness, and it's usually short-lived. Have Less & Be More Alive.

“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.” ~ Albert Camus

You can search/buy/waste life on looking for happiness in materials and earthly possessions. You can also search/worry about the future until the future as already arrived and then realize all the worrying was time wasted.

The future will arrive whether you are ready or not. And happiness will only find you if you open your heart to truly experience life and the time you have each and every day.

Stop worrying, start believing & trusting. Stop trying to buy happiness and open up your heart instead. Embrace every obstacle, every challenge, every opportunity life throws at you. Reach out and explore LIFE.

The Invincible Summer Within Us All

No matter how old you are, how much experience or in-experience you have, within you lies your very own invincible summer. What motivates you, what drives you, what inspires you and with that you can do and achieve anything you want to. You can feel young again, you can always be happy, be joyful, be humble... The choice is yours... today. 

Sometimes it may years of experience, sometimes it may not, but one day you will find your invincible summer.

"In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” ~ Albert Camus

It's always been there, waiting to be free...
