“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
How often do you take the road less traveled?
It’s much easier to live in your present comfort, and that’s okay if you are happy.
But if you feel stuck, maybe it’s time to get out of your comfort zone.
Maybe it’s time to take the road less traveled.
You’ll be happy you did.
“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald
You lost the game.
You won it next week.
You fell down.
You got back up.
You’ve been hated.
You’ve been loved.
Why is it easier for people to cling to the negative?
It could be, like Tupac said, that “fear is stronger than love.”
Or it could be the result of societies current dogmas.
Societies change, history shows us this, but it always begins at an individual level.
You may have been defeated once, or even hundreds of times, but life is not done with you yet.
Don’t confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.
“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
Where are you going?
What’s the rush?
Sometimes a sense of urgency is necessary, and sometimes it’s not.
And sometimes we’re all so busy rushing around that we forget the joy in this moment.
Take a deep breath.
Be here, now.
And from here, you can go anywhere.
“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.”
– Lao Tzu
The direction of your life depends on you and your vision.
(if you aren’t happy with your life currently, a new vision might help)
Dream some more.
Pray some more.
And now you’re on your way.
“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
– Lao Tzu
What dream do you have?
Are you taking actions towards your dream?
What is one thing you can do today to begin turning dreams into reality?
It won’t happen overnight, but it won’t happen until you first have the dream.
“Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy.”
– Isaac Newton
Nature appears to be meditating all the time. It is still. It doesn’t worry about anything yet it accomplishes its task.
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
– Lao Tzu
We’ve been educated to worry, but what if we didn’t?
What if for at least one day we didn’t worry about anything – like Bob Marley sings.
My challenge for you is for one day this week, think about what it would be like to not worry about anything at all.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
– Leonardo da Vinci
“Do your work, then step back. The only path to serenity.”
– Lao Tzu
There’s no need to expand on this simple yet profound message from Lao Tzu.
Do your work, then step back.
Enjoy the view.
Is a life of Art; painting, singing, dancing, writing, discovering, creating, exploring, dreaming.
These all fall into the category of Art, but so does teaching, cooking, cleaning, traveling, and working wherever you are – if they are worked upon with focused concentration & intentions of Love.
Anyone can be an artist, but only few are.
Where your mind goes, there you will go too…
“Everything you can imagine is real.”
― Pablo Picasso
How much time do you spend waiting?
Instead of waiting, what do you think could happen if you tried?
Do you even know where you are headed?
Think about a better future. For yourself & for humanity. For this World.
What does it look like?
From here, is where you begin🙏❤️✨

Now is the time to Do The Work.
