Thrive!

“Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life. —WU MEN”
Arianna Huffington, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder

Scene in Boston (II)

From a recent trip to Boston. I got a couple of cool pictures from the plane, take a look!

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ― Anaïs Nin

 

Travelers on a Journey

Almost five years ago on the first day of my first job after graduating from college, a very eloquent orientation speaker read this poem (which I just now accidentally found online) to a group of eager, excited and perhaps secretly nervous new employees. I remember thinking ‘wow, these are powerful words’ and feeling challenged to positively impact my “fellow travelers” – not only at work but also in my family, friendships and greater community. I had the same sentiments today after reading this poem. Frankly, I can do better in spreading happiness and love. What about you?

Focus

“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Devil and Miss Prym
