“Everyone is God speaking.

Why not be polite

and listen to Him?”

Life is much too important to be taken seriously.

The Great Thing Is…

“The great thing is, once we let go of being everything, we have the opportunity to be gloriously ourselves.”

To Love At All is to be Vulnerable

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”

-C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

This New Year – Make Mistakes

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself.

Make new mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
Neil Gaiman

Life is Simple

“Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment. Neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it…but it’s easier if you do.”

Anxious Thinking

“Don’t let anxious thinking replace vulnerable feelings.”

Start Today

Good morning y’all and happy Monday! I hope that this inspirational quote serves as a reminder to us all as we begin our work week…

“A year from now, you may wish you had started today.” – Karen Lamb

Remember to be conscious of your priorities. 🙂

Wisdom from The Big Short

I recently watched The Big Short (I know I’m a little late). It’s a great movie and I highly recommend it. One particular quote from the movie by Mark Twain stuck with me and I decided to share it here because it’s filled with so much wisdom. Enjoy! 🙂

Quote about Entrepreneurship

Everyone must begin to trust their dreams because out of that trust is born the artist, and the artist is the role model for the entrepreneur we now need. – Ernest Hall
