Life is not something to get through
It’s not something to settle for
It’s something to live and love living
It’s accepting failures and embracing defeat
It’s doing what you love
It’s not setting up roadblocks from what you need
It’s tearing them down
It’s taking breaks when you need them
It’s accepting help
It’s doing the best that’s right by you
It’s being okay with where you are, within
It’s thinking and letting thoughts be
It’s about opening up to possibility
Life is anything, and it’s yours once.
I wrote this on April 8, 2007 and promptly forgot about it. Rediscovered today as I was decluttering my bookshelf.
