"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.
"I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that."
