October 4th 2011 – Favorite Lines from Somewhere…

Steve Jobs lived the kind of life and made decisions with a courage that I wish I could emulate…  A few of my favorite lines are from his commencement speech at Stanford University:

“…No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary…

…Stay Hungry! Stay Foolish!”

Steve Jobs! Rest in Peace.

October 5th 2011: I Wish I Were More…

I stand before a mirror of time seeing who I am, what I have become after all that I dreamed to be.
It hurts at times to look at that woman and I say to myself: “.. So not enough… I wish I were more…”

And when I look away from the mirror, to go lay my head down in supplication to Him who has blessed me with everything that I have asked for and more, I hear the echo of an answer inside:

“You already are!”

October 6th 2011: Year After Graduation

… brought me to choices between what I wanted and what was wished by others. I chose what they wished, not because they forced me but because I had no idea what I wanted. Rather than giving me vision, I realized my graduation had left me in whirlpool of swirling darkness and shadows. I had forgotten half the things I had been good at and started settling for things I could get by in…

It took me that year to find myself, on a path chosen for me by someone else…
