Don't forget to stop and enjoy the play!!

"Play isn't something separate from the daily grind of life.  It is not something to finally get to when work ends.  Rather, play like music, is a force that we feel in our bones and that whispers in our hearts. As kids demonstrate play is not over there, but forever here and now."

-Vince Gowmon

 

"It's okay to be absurd, ridiculous and downright irrational at times, silliness is the sweet syrup that helps us swallow the bitter pills of life." - Richelle E. Goodrich

Howard Thurman- "Don't ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

Use this week to assess your life and ask yourself what you need to feel more alive!!  Build a good foundation of good health to help you focus on your passion.

Think about those times when you thought you couldn't take one more step forward because you were so exhausted...but then you did...Or that time when you were convinced that you were going to implode and pull your hair out...but then you figured out how to manage without making a big mess.  Every situation that you overcome in your life builds endurance.  Lets create situations to increase our endurance and become better, stronger, more hardy humans!!

The show Departures by Scott Wilson, Justin Lukach and Andre Dupuis is the inspiration for todays talk.  I discuss Season 1 Episodes 9 and 10 and the extreme living that these guys show us.  Yes, there is a little discussion of how Scott and Justin represent the Super Ego and the Id, as Freud defines it.  We should all make sure we are living with a little Id and extremeness to our life to get the blood pumping and the adrenaline flowing.
