"Just know that you climb your own mountain in this life and if you wait for others to carry you up it you’ll wait ‘til others are putting you six feet under." – cory basil, originally uploaded by iamchanelle.
i know this is neither a recipe, nor anything to do with food, really.
but this quote has so inspired me to reflect on my goals and intentions for my life, and i wanted to share it with all of you.
i took some time yesterday to step away from the distractions of work, the noise of the internet, and to-do lists. (i was inspired to do so by this. thanks, cory!)
i focused my thoughts on what i really want to accomplish in my life- realistically accomplish. you know, living in France would not qualify for the “realistic” goals list… nor would being a rock star. not yet anyway. 😉
i narrowed my focal point just a bit more from there.
the conclusion i came to?
i want to be present.
i want to let things go.
i want to be joyful and peaceful at the same time.
i want to write again.
i want to sing and play more.
i want to be a good friend.
i want to inspire my kids to be incredible, creative, kind people.
i want to smile at strangers more often.
and i want every action i take to reflect One.
this is my goal.
it’s time for a metamorphosis.
