Different quotes resonate with me at different times, but this is one I often find myself going back to when I seem to be losing perspective. We can become so consumed by situations at work, in our businesses and personal lives, that in the grand scheme of life, it dosen’t really matter.   Sometimes I have to give myself a bit of a nudge and remember to be grateful that I am here, and re-focus my energy on the bigger...

#757 Some people are bad sports…

You’ve heard it countless times: It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game that matters. The concept looks great on paper, but when you have to reconcile with the fact you won and they lost, all you want to do is cheer with joy and feel slightly sad, yet rejoicing for those who are heartbroken and crying.. Or, for that matter, to the angry parent who’s shouting criticism from...

“Not all those who wander are lost…Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again”… Everyone is on a journey at some point in their lives. Life is a journey. The adventure of it all, the experience of being alive, the circumstances and everything else in between seconds, milliseconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years is a journey or a travel. Adventures,...

#753 “I believe when life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade…and try to find someone whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.”

A couple of insights we can take from this quote…  1. Be Grateful  In life, many of us take whatever we have for granted. I’m guilty of this!  Sometimes, we fixate on what we lack versus what is already ours but yet are unappreciative of.  Don’t lament. Regardless of whether what we possess seems sufficient relative to others or not, I gotta be grateful. Regardless of how dire a situation can be,...

#755 When nature wants to reclaim back what’s theirs…

You think you own whatever land you land on; The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim; But I know every rock and tree and creature; Has a life, has a spirit, has a name;  Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest; Come taste the sun sweet berries of the Earth; Come roll in all the riches all around you; And for once, never wonder what they’re worth..  How high will the...

#754 Time flies by when the night is young..

Time flies by when the night is young;Daylight shines on an unexposed location, location; Bloodshot eyes lookin‘ for the sun; Paradise we live it, and we call it a vacation, vacation;  You’re painting me a dream that I wouldn’t belong in, wouldn’t belong in;  Over the hills and far away; A million miles from L.A; Just anywhere away with you; I know we’ve...
