Don’t Wait for Perfect Moments

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
― Steve Jobs

I bet you’ve heard this before. Life doesn’t have to always be perfect for it to be great. We don’t always need perfect moments to appreciate life, all we need is a perfect attitude towards life. The perfect plan, perfect job, the perfect time to take a vacation…..Even though we know our time here is limited, we build our lives on perfect.

The mindset behind this thinking is what causes us to lose time, time with family, time with loved ones and time for ourselves. The only way to appreciate anything is to appreciate life. Take the vacation, make the most of that job until you find something better, if one plan doesn’t work, start over. Don’t spend your life waiting for perfect moments. Time waits for no one and one day you will run out of time.

Sometimes you’ll feel like you’ve got it all together but commitment is hard when you’re looking for perfection. Many days you will feel like you’re putting one step forward and two steps back, you will feel like nothing is going right, that life is just one huge bag of disappointments. But if you look closely, you’ll see how perfect life is. Even on a rainy day, there’s cause to smile. 

Life comes at you fast, in the grand scheme of things, even without perfection there is always hope. Grind it out, look past your need for perfection, remember, there are no flowers without rain, disappointments make success that much sweeter when it comes and life is never perfect unless you value it perfect. Don’t wait for perfect moments, look for something perfect in each moment!

Those Feelings that Hurts the Most

The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd – The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.
― Fernando Pessoa

To Always Love Life…………

To love life, to love it even when you have no stomach for it and everything you’ve held dear crumbles like burnt paper in your hands, your throat filled with the silt of it. When grief sits with you, its tropical heat thickening the air, heavy as water more fit for gills than lungs; when grief weights you like your own flesh only more of it, an obesity of grief, you think, How can a body withstand this? Then you hold life like a face between your palms, a plain face, no charming smile, no violet eyes, and you say, yes, I will take you I will love you, again.
