seize the moment

When you blame circumstance outside yourself, you miss the wave of awareness, for you really are attracting the situation. Whenever you make excuses, you are not in the game. The nature of existence is friendly and significant, and as a designer of reality, ask yourself why you design what you do. Seize the moment and pay close attention to how you use your thoughts and words to create your outer environment.
—  Barbara Marciniak, Path of Empowerment
Sometimes life can be hard, hard to understand, hard to manage. Sometimes things happen and you just don’t know what to do or how to react. Let’s be real, sometimes life can be really shitty and the only thing you can think about is FML, but never loose faith in yourself, in your strength, in happiness, even in your worse days, especially in your worse days. I believe that everything happens for a reason, every bad day will make you appreciate even more the good ones. Never stop fighting for your happiness, because you have only one chance to live this life, and no one will give you back the time you’ve wasted. So, as an old friend of mine used to say : Seize that fucking moment!

I don’t care how many times you’ve told me that story. I don’t care that you’ve said those words so many times that I can tell just by the way your lips move. Keep talking, keep telling me, because this may be the last time I will ever hear your voice.

Wordy Wednesday: Adventure

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”
– Jawaharlal Nehru

“One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.”
– William Feather

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”
– Helen Keller

“One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast….a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”
― Edward Abbey

“It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves.”
– Andre Gide

“I’d like to repeat the advice that I gave you before, in that I think you really should make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
― Jon Krakauer

“No, no! The adventures first, explanations take such a dreadful time.”

― Augustine of Hippo

“Be careful going in search of adventure - it’s ridiculously easy to find.”
– William Least Heat-Moon

“Love, like everything else in life, should be a discovery, an adventure, and like most adventures, you don’t know you’re having one until you’re right in the middle of it.”
― E.A. Bucchianeri

“People who make no mistakes lack boldness and the spirit of adventure. They are the brakes on the wheels of progress.”
