“Your Time is limited, so don’t wast it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma-which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And, most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~Steve Jobs
This quote really spoke to me when I heard it this past weekend. Last week was particularly difficult for our family, as my son lost a very good friend very tragically in a motorcycle accident on Good Friday. He was only 26 years old…..and my son turned 26 just 6 days after his death.
His death was a wake up call for me to not only help my son through such a difficult time in his life, but for me to take a look at my own life, and connect with my soul and my intuition to always make sure I am living my own life; beating to my own drum and doing whatever I can to leave this world better than when I arrived.
I’ve heard it so many times before; “Life is so fragile”. This experience has shown me in the depths of my heart and my mind that this saying really is the truth. We can be here one minute and gone the next. We have no control over when we leave this world, we only have control over our experience while visiting Mother Earth. I vow in honour of Jordan, to I will live out the rest of my days looking my fears in the face, and having the courage to follow my heart and my intuition -even when mine isn’t the popular decision. I vow to do this because my time is limited here, and so I won’t waste it living someone else’s life.
To your amazing life,
