Don’t Let Life Randomly Kick You

Don't let life randomly kick you

While orbiting earth in the International Space Station, Chris Hadfield did an AMA on Reddit.

Below was such a powerful message that I thought it needed to be shared.

“Decide in your heart of hearts what really excites and challenges you, and start moving your life in that direction. Every decision you make, from what you eat to what you do with your time tonight, turns you into who you are tomorrow, and the day after that. Look at who you want to be, and start sculpting yourself into that person. You may not get exactly where you thought you’d be, but you will be doing things that suit you in a profession you believe in. Don’t let life randomly kick you into the adult you don’t want to become.”

 

Don’t Light Yourself on Fire

How many times have you had to put out relationship fires? Are people at work and home in a constant state of turmoil expecting you to solve the problem? Well maybe its time for you to stop running around with your hair on fire just to be the rescuer.

Robin Williams – Make Your Life Spectacular

You know as we come to the end of this phase of our lives, we find ourselves trying to remember the good times and trying to forget the bad times, and we find ourselves thinking about the future. We start to worry, thinking “What am I gonna do?”, “Where am I gonna be in ten years?”. But I say to you, “Hey, look at me”. Please, don’t worry so much, because in the end none of us have very long on this earth – life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night, and when a shooting star streaks through the blackness turning night into day, make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did.

Time With Children

Chris Rock Quote

“When I hear people talk about juggling or the sacrifices they make for their children, I look at them like they’re crazy, because ‘sacrifice’ infers there was something better to do than being with your children.”
