Living Deliberately ~ Final Thoughts



Living Deliberately is just that - living Life in a manner to fully enjoy and appreciate each moment of each day. In order to live this lifestyle, a person needs to make a deliberate choice to change their habits and thought patterns. Do I do this ? I try very hard to enjoy what each day has to offer - both good and bad. Though sometimes I do struggle and have moments of transgression. This is normal and only natural. I just pick myself up when this happens and continue on down the path. 
I am going to leave you with a few quotes to ponder.

"That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains." - Steve Jobs

“The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.” - Ernest Hemingway

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
~ Steve Jobs
