~~All you need to know is that the future is wide open and you are about to create it by what you do.~~ Pema Chodron
Think about it....you get to create your future!! How exciting is that? You can decide to be healthier. You can choose to be an artist. You can delightfully learn how to dance. Learn a foreign language. You can be kind. You can volunteer. You can continue to love animals. You can be a friend.
But it's yours for the making. Note the action words here...making...creating...deciding. The future will come whether you are ready for it or not but it's your choice what comes. You can choose to continue to smoke. Your future may be filled with doctor's appointments. Missed opportunities. Loneliness. Regret.
I hope not. I hope that you have the courage, the wisdom, and the childlike glee to fill your future with love, with fun, and with everything you've ever wanted to do. Decide to truly live. Choose activities that speak to your soul. Be daring...be adventerous....be you.
You were never meant to smoke through life, alone and emotionless. The universe wants so much more for you. No one smiles quite like you. No one charms quite like you. No one creates quite like you.
So create your future with everything you've got. Talents...skills...dreams. And fill your life with everything you love. Get interested in you!!
Yesterday, part of my quote read something about "...don't fast-forward to a future you haven't earned...". By quitting, by choosing life, and living in truth you have earned that future. So its time to begin!! Live your adventures!! And create a future you can look forward to.
