Life and life–moments can be fleeting. So, start living your life now. Don’t postpone…And, what have you been waiting for…? Live now. Write that book that you have been postponing for so long. Live now. Breathe. Relax. Hug often. Let go. Love always. Connect. Forgive the people who have wronged you. Silently beg for forgiveness from people who you yourself have wronged in any way. Visit the places that you have been postponing for so long. Take that vacation.
Life’s moments are ephemeral. Remember and reminisce. Sit back and relax. Work fully. But also, spend idle moments without any remorse. Take a time off. Occasional breather breathes life into your works and life. Forgive always; forget often. But never miss life’s moments, for you’d be missing life itself. Exercise kindness and tenderness to the young ones and the old. Lend a helping hand to the needy. Be respectful with your colleagues and seniors: always! Live, learn, explore, expand. Inspire and be inspired.
Enjoy everything. Remember this: be responsible; your happiness shouldn’t come at the expense of others. Enjoy your good health, strive to maintain it. Don’t be disheartened by life’s failures; for they’re there to teach you. Enjoy everything life and Universe has to offer. Sunshine. Rain. Flower. Family. friends. Songs. Poetry. Novels. paintings: art.
And remember: when things don’t go your way, remind yourself that maybe they weren’t meant to go the way you intended…Let go. “Your area of success and expertise seeks you just the way you seek it”.
My Coach and mentor, World’s top ranking Leadership Thinker, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, often reiterates one of his favorite quotes. One by the great Management thinker Late Peter Drucker: “Our mission in life is not to prove how smart and talented we are, but to make a positive difference in people’s lives”.
So, strive to give, and to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Your life will be inspirational, a work of art.
