Beauty lives all around us.

On living a life worth living

I have been pondering Mary Oliver’s instructions for living a life.

Instructions for living a life: pay attention, be astonished, tell about it.
— Mary Oliver

So when a friend posted this on Facebook, I took notice.

I am particularly drawn to:

– If you don’t like something, change it

– Open your heart to new things

– All emotions are beautiful

– Appreciate every bite

– Wear your passion

I believe that I have been given a life in abundance- Not just a life that can be wasted away in front of the TV but a life that was made for living and doing and being and creating and sharing. I live a passionate life- a life that I can choose. I have chosen my path to trod. My path is towards a beautiful tomorrow.
