This is Your Life

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something change it. If you don’t like your job quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life. Stop. They will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, all emotions are beautiful. Life is simple. When you eat appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often. Getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, Seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them. So go out and start creating. Live your dream, and wear your passion, Life is short.
