“There’s no such thing as ruining your life. Life’s a pretty resilient thing as it turns out.” ~Sophie Kinsella
Yes, there are times when life as we know it ends, and it feels like all is ruined, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. Life as we have known it may have ended, but new life is always springing up again out of the cracks.
Life is more resilient than we give it credit for (and so are we!).

“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.” ~Eckhart Tolle
How often do you tell you tell yourself that you’ll start living the life you are longing for after ________________ happens? (Fill in the blank … after graduation, after I get married, after the kids are grown, after retirement, after the next promotion, after … )
What is it you are waiting for?
Stop waiting and start living today, even if you have to start small where you currently are. This is the only life you have. Don’t miss out on the chance to live it to the fullest!

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flame.” ~Mevlana Rumi
Life fully lived is a life on fire with purpose and enthusiasm. If you’re still trying to live safely in blandness (and aren’t we all in some way?), what would it look like to set your life on fire? Who would help fan your flames to keep you alive and glowing bright?
“Go into yourself and see how deep the pace is from which your life flows.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke
Who we truly are flows from a deeper place within us than we often take time to explore. It’s worth diving beneath the surface of life to discover that deeper source!
“Each person’s life is like a mandala—a vast, limitless circle. We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life.” ~Pema Chödrön
There are many things in life that we have no control over, but we have more choice about what we focus on and what we spend our time seeing, hearing, and thinking than we often imagine. If these are forming the mandala of our life, we would do well to pay more attention to what we choose to let in. Those choices create our life.
