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

 

Scene in New York City

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”- Terry Pratchett

Anew

My wonderful friend, David, captured this sunrise two days ago. Beautiful, isn’t it? Taken in Parkville, northeast of Baltimore city.

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?
