Life is much shorter than you think it is. Think of how fast it is gone by already.
There is no such thing as trying to many things. There is such a thing as trying to little.
Remember all those times you were working so hard for something? Or you were waited so long for something? A new job, car, vacation, love? Do you ever take time to sit and be thankful for these things you worked and waited for that have come? Or are you already on to working and waiting for something else?
Do you embrace the unpredictability of life, trusting that life always works out one way or other, or are you stuck trying to make life happen? How’s that working?

Stand on your head every once in a while. You never know what you might see from this new angle.
If you hate your job, your friends, your husband, your city, do some self inquiry. Take these opportunities to learn about yourself and about what you really do love. Then make the change. You only have one life, and when you know what you love, life is to short not to do it.
When you are doing what you love, what fulfills you, what makes you jump out of bed in the morning with passion and joy, you are doing your service to the world. We each have a role to play. It may not be big, but it is important.

You cannot lose something that was never yours. We do not own anything, ever. Hold life with an open palm and watch desperation and fear melt away.

Working on yourself, becoming the highest form of you, is working on the world.
Chances are you wont remember the long hours at work, on the treadmill or in front of the t.v. You most likely will remember the minutes spent sharing with those you love.
Remember how you would have wanted to be treated? Treat them like that.
There is no such thing as showing too much compassion.
Actively make the time to do something you love every.single.day. That way you can make every day a day you look forward to.
Life is to short to diet. Your body won’t respond well anyways. Eat whole foods, you will learn to love them I promise.
