Love for Life
Stop worrying and just do. Stop judging and just do.Think about what you’re doing, but not so much that you fail to do it. Plan and prepare, but don’t stop with mere planning or preparation.Put your energy into taking action rather than into second guessing. Keep your focus on why you’re choosing to move forward instead of getting caught up in the challenges that you’ll eventually transcend.Don’t use your beautiful, powerful creativity to think of grand and glorious excuses. Use that creativity to remind yourself and to experience for yourself how great it feels to make a difference.Fill your mind with thoughts of purposeful intention. Fill your moments with the joy that comes from taking effective action.Fill your heart with genuine love for life and all it encompasses. And fill your days with action in the service of all you love.
