As I mentioned a while back, I had an “A-Ha” moment regarding the theme of this blog. The new tag line and “About this Blog” page spell it out in detail, but in short form, this is now officially a blog about doing little things and big things, basically whatever we can, to break out from our everyday ruts and live life to its fullest.
I was listening to NPR the other day and the interviewee was RZA of the Wu Tang Clan, who has a new book “The Tao of Wu” . During the interview he said something that I think really sums up the point of this blog:
“I like to say that a man should put himself in heaven at once. Don’t wait till you die to go to heaven; live heaven on earth. You could be in a small apartment inside a project. If you have the right mentality, that project could be a paradise for you. But it’s the mentality that we carry with ourselves everyday that makes our surroundings uglier than what they really are.”
It’s time to get to the right mentality – no ifs, no buts, and no regrets! We only get one shot at this life, my goal is to encourage you all and myself to get the most out of it and to have a whole lot of fun on this journey!
Talk to you tomorrow. Until then, please take the time today, even if it is only 5 minutes, to do one nice thing for yourself, whether it be a walk, a run, a hot cup of coffee sipped over a favorite book, or a hot bath.
