Mirth and Motivation

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

Choices: Where did those 10,000 hours go? Recently, my good friend Susan and I were hanging out and chatting at her home. As we sipped cups of hot chocolate and coffee, we talked about the power of choice and how we exercise it in our lives, in our career paths, romantic partnerships, familial relationships, education and more.

    10,000 hours is too short for me, because there is a lot of things that we can do for everything. First thing to do is travel around the world 🙂

    It’s difficult to be at the middle. For me, it makes a person somebody without resolve & standpoint. I find that dangerous because it tells me that if someone is like that, I can’t give my trust to that person. There’s power and freedom in making choices.

    Ha-ha. I also have that topic whenever my friends and I are hanging around. Perhaps, it is more of appreciating life and its wonders.

    It is amazing how quickly time flies especially after high school. I remember school taking forever some days and now I wish time would slow down. 🙂

    Eliz, those same questions run through my mind everyday. I thought I was the only one. When I try to speak to anyone about it, they just roll their eyes. Too deep of a topic for most people to chat about.
