be brave



I think the most beautiful thing a person can do is live.

Live outrageously, courageously,

with intention.




There is a difference between those who live and those who exist.

There is a difference in their voice, in their step, in their breath.

Most importantly,

there is a difference in their heart.




They say there are two ways to bring brightness into this world: to be the light, but also to be the mirror that reflects it. I don't think the mirror has to be quieter. I don't think the mirror is any less of light.


Have you seen a disco ball?

It takes the light one step further, one step further into beautiful.




"My life is my message" Ghandi said,

and that is the best message I think one can give.

Live as you intend the world to be, live as you wish people to be, live

and they will follow.




And it will be beautiful.

Love your thoughts. I get the discoball -- beautiful and true. Reminds me of a Buddhist thought: "Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."

I feel very inspired now! And ready to be the brightest star. Or a really awesome disco ball.
