We should look to belongings not to be the beautiful moments in life, but to enable us to experience the beautiful moments.
The power of gratitude can free you from the self-inflicted prison of complaint.
You’ve led a beautiful, wonderful, complex and glorious life! Why not use those experiences to make your everyday life beautiful, wonderful, complex and glorious?!
You have incredible capacity to effect change in other people simply by being with them, hearing their concerns, and showing compassion.

As good as the shortcuts, indulgences and laziness felt at the time, at the end of every day I had nothing to show for it and found myself in another place I talk about frequently. That guilty feeling that you aren’t making progress and don’t deserve to do well.
There are experts in the thing that you are trying to accomplish, and they have written things that will encourage, inspire and challenge you. I dare you to go find them. Heck, I dare you to go become them!
May your new year be full of gratitude for what you’ve already experienced, enjoyment of the moment while you’re in it, and anticipation of the brilliant future you are creating.
