It’s What You See

The question is not what you look at, but what you see. Thoreau’s Journal, August 5, 1851

It’s Saturday! Go see something fabulous. Better yet, go somewhere ordinary and look for something extraordinary. That’s when the magic happens – when you look for the good and the special in the ordinary.

You may be surprised at what you will see!

Daffodils In Snow

We awoke to a light snowfall yesterday morning. It didn’t even last till lunch but it was a lovely sight all the same.

I’m not sure these pretty little daffodils were so pleased to be blanketed in snow but it made me smile to see how bravely they stood up to it.

Isn’t that how life goes? Everything seems sunny and happy and then something harsh comes along and kills the mood for a while. Luckily, those mood killers typically don’t last forever and the sun will eventually come back.

It’s Never Too Late

Van Gogh only painted for the last ten years is his life. He started at the age of 27 and painted over 2,000 pieces including some of the world’s great masterpieces

You know what that means?

It’s never too late to embrace your passion. We clearly can’t all be Van Gogh but we can start a new hobby, peruse a better career and get to work on what matters.

If not today, then when?
