Seize Your Day

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

Carpe Diem Jonathan Hilton
Today is the day

I have felt most passionate and alive right now, there is nothing that could top this moment in time until tomorrow!

There are many people who will look far into the distant past for this answer or maybe dream of a day in the future that might be better or more perfect but to me right here and right now is the place where I feel most passionate and alive.

Breaking The Rules

I’m a Rule Breaker

As a human being living on the Earth, you are constantly bombarded with warnings from the time you are born, until the time your life here is done.  People tell you the rules, clearly and with very little gray area, what is acceptable behavior and what is not. Some were designed to keep you physically safe, but many were designed to keep you from being original, or standing out in any way.

Peace

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” – Abraham Lincoln

133622396_80_80This famous quote by Abraham Lincoln was given well over a hundred years ago and I believe that it can be directly applied today, to the reason we do not have peace in the world. When it comes to war, hatred and discrimination of any kind there first has to exist a feeling of separation in one’s mind.  A cognitive judgment that a person places on another to exclude them from themselves and their lives.

Quotes of Courage

 Courage lets You go in the right direction

 courage
King of the Forest

“If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t go anywhere.” –Unknown

Like everybody else in life, there have been  times when I have been faced with circumstances that were not the most pleasant to deal with.  There are really only two choices as to how you decide to face these moments in life.  One is to act out of fear, that you may lose what you have worked for or be hurt irreparably by whatever misstep has come your way.  Or you can face the challenge of the situation head on and with a courage that you will not be conquered by the events of your life and you will not shrink from them.  You will come out on the other end a stronger, better person. Courage is defined as mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty

What are you sure of in life? What philosophy can you stand behind and not shy away from because you are sure of its validity? We all have some non-negotiable items in this cache. The sun will rise, the sun will set. Life is fleeting. You must work hard to be successful. The government is looking out for your best interest. If it isn’t one thing, it’s another. There are many points of view which are considered by people constant, unshakable and permanent fixtures in life and creators of our reality. Yet in reality, they are only interesting points of view that you can choose to believe or discard as you see fit.
