OK- you’ve probably seen this video. But watch it again and then read below.
First off- I don’t exactly know who this little precious child is but he is adorable and I just want to squeeze his cheeks!
One of my students told me to watch this video because I’ve been a little down lately. Too many people I love and care about are dealing with cancer. My heart feels broken even though I’m happy in my personal and work life. It just makes me sad and there’s not a lot to do aside from be positive and be there. As the kid president says- life is a game and we are on the same team. Every day I teach yoga classes and try my best to encourage people to live a vibrant life and a huge part of making that happen is just being there. And that’s what I vow to do for the people I love who are hurting right now. Just showing my love and support.
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
The road less traveled is the one that leads to awesome. Time doesn’t stop when life is hard and has it challenges. You have to keep going because you are the only one who can create whatever it is that you really want. So how can you create something that will be amazing? Everyone’s answer is different but whatever it is, you can do it with love and courage. Because like the kid president say- you were made to be awesome.
Life is short, sweet, bitter, and incredible. It’s not about putting yourself into a box that’s some vision on how you think you should live your life. It’s just about being, believing, composing, dreaming, and going and going.
Who encourages you?
These people encourage me
And I’d love to know how you’re going to make your life awesome
