Every once in a while — often when we least expect it — we encounter someone more courageous, someone who choose to strive for that which (to us) seemed unrealistically unattainable, even elusive. And we marvel. We swoon. We gape. Often , we are in awe. I think we look at these people as lucky, when in fact, luck has nothing to do with it. It is really about the strength of their imagination; it is about how they constructed the possibilities for their Life. In short, unlike me, they didn’t determine what was impossible before it was even possible.
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good."
"Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands."
I used to think I wasn’t until I started working in the corporate world. What energy and creativity I had during late nights of my college days, I now have on mornings spent reading & replying to emails while eating a breakfast sandwich on my work desk. That’s how multi-tasking and punctual a corporate slave should be.
But today is different. I chose to take a leave and finish my pending projects at home, where I can focus, think clearly and squeeze my creative juices.
They say creativity has no end. I say, sometimes, creativity takes a halt, and reminds you to take a break, too, as it also needs some replenishment.
