Words to Live By

“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream and share your passion.”

Limitless: A Metaphor For Many Things

Have you seen the movie Limitless? I watched it (sort of… I was also doing other things) tonight (since I’m sick) and was fascinated by it. It’s such a metaphor for so many things in our modern lives… the blatant one would be drug use, but also, just a metaphor for the fast-paced life itself. I remember hearing him say “Only problem? If I wasn’t moving forward, I felt like I was going to explode” as he was referring to his fast-paced life on the adderall-like drug the movie focuses on. Except my thought was “wow…I feel this way everyday.” That’s not such a good thing I don’t think. We talk about this a lot in my yoga teacher training, and I’m beginning to become more aware of it. The main character also begins to be sick from taking the drug… eventually, everyone who takes it just dies. This is exactly like the way we’re stressed in today’s society: we are all running around with headaches, cancer, stomach pains, and having heart attacks (just to name a few of the many effects stress can contribute to), and we can’t stop and just say “enough!” Trust me, though– this isn’t me complaining about this, because I myself am a part of this. But I think recognition is the first step.
