The Flame Within Us

"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us." ~ Albert Schweitzer
99.999% of things that will effect your life are things that you can't even see in your life.  Get in the habit of making 'sparks', and your light, through the will of the Universe, will grow.

Solitude is Bliss


I write this sitting on a bus, alone, thinking about everything and nothing.  A great song shows up on shuffle, Solitude is Bliss by Tame Impala, and it takes me to a happy place. 

Some of my most intense, impactful, and inspiring moments in life have been when I consciously take time to be myself.  I think that those moments provide a heightened sense of clarity into life.  “The most important thing in life is to be happy with yourself.”  This is a quote that means so much to me.  It has guided my decisions of late.  It’s important to take time to hang out by yourself and think. 

I prefer to have these types of moments outside, preferably in a really tight spot (Mount Lemon, GG Park, El Matador Beach), with my music, and zero technology or distractions.  I encourage everyone here to take some time to explore your mind and think about how you can live a better life.  It will be extremely gratifying. 

Oh, and don’t forget to bring a bag full of goodies (so you don’t get hungry). 

Here is the track that inspired this post:

Today

a smile, a kind word, can change the energy to positive and effect others in ways not seen.  Let' smile and offer kind words all day.  Good for you, good for me, good for everyone around us today.

Simple as That.




Attitude

Here's something I can take with me every day of my life --- 


"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes." -Charles R. Swindoll

Here After


"I just want you to find the beauty in things.  There is always a positive side of somebody"
My buddy from New York City makes these videos and I think they are super sick.  This is the first part of a three part series.
