Breathe Deeply

Dear Diary,

A bit of inspiration on a rainy, pre-spring Tuesday morning:

What truly makes your heart beat? I don’t mean what makes your heart skitter or skip a beat from a temporary thrill. But what makes the blood course hot and fast through your veins to spark the electricity in your brain to move your muscles to a meaningful purpose? What idea burns within you that begs to be realized? Have you put it on a shelf or tucked it away because it is too difficult? Bring it out, dust it off, or mend the tears and scratches. Embrace it. Live it. Be it.To not do so, would be to breathe but shallowly.

Here are a collection of quotes from famous people who lived their passions:

Do what you love. Know your bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still. ~Henry David Thoreau

We all have to do the best we can. This is our sacred human responsibility. ~ Albert Einstein

Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. ~Robert Frost

Don’t part with your illusions. When they are gone, you may still exist, but you have ceased to live. ~Mark Twain

Passion is the genesis of genius. ~Tony Robbins

Like the north wind whistling down the sky, I’ve got a song. Like the the whippoorwill and the baby’s cry, I’ve got a song. And I carry it with me and I sing it loud. If it takes me nowhere, I’ll go there proud. ~Jim Croce

Slip inside the back of your mind, don’t you know you might find a better place to play? ~Oasis

Whatever there be of progress in life comes not through adaption, but through daring. ~Henry Miller

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase ~Martin Luther King Jr.

All of our progress is an unfolding, like a vegetable bud. You first have instinct, then opinion, then a knowledge as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason. ~Emerson

Today is a new day, begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered by your old nonsense. ~Emerson

Rock on, Beautiful People.
