As a sad era in modern American history unfolds before us, one cannot help but wonder how such an esteemed civic leader would respond.
His words ring true yet today. America, are you listening?
Dragging yourself down to the level of someone who fights dirty, or treats you like trash, is a futile battle. Don’t let yourself be reduced to the shortcomings of others. Keep it clean and stay out of the mud life puts in your path.
Time is fleeting. Time is constant. Time is not forever.
What have you been putting off? What do you need to do today — that same thing you needed to do yesterday — that you might not get to do tomorrow?
In the words of Nike, “Just do it!”
I’m proud of my cracks. They are my battle scars in the fight to be the best me I can be!
Amidst the juxtaposition of life, living emerges.
How outrageously amazing would life be if we all just attacked life with the attitude of a lovely bed of flowers?
If our focus was on being the best bloom we could be; basking in the sunlight, weathering wind and rain, and soaking in the nutrients awaiting us in our environment?
Forget competing with the nearby zinna, daisy or coneflower, instead just celebrating how majestic we all are together.
Want to have that beautiful life? Just focus on how you bloom and leave the rest to Mother Nature.
Like a bad game of telephone, our memory can take the moments of our life and turn reality into fiction. Intentional or not, what we remember is indeed, what happened.
