I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet . . . I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time. ~ Jack London
Sometimes these words are difficult to follow, like when one is sitting in the overwhelming grief of loss, or you are going through rough times with a loved one, or . . . the list is endless! All of life can be a rough time if we allow it to be that way. Or, we can acknowledge our pain and suffering, and then attempt to get back to the business of living our life. There is no road map for how long any of it may take, and I would rather not judge anyone on his or her path, but remain on my own. I have suffered the depths of loss and had my soul rattled, yet somehow I found my way back to the light. I love this quote in that it serves to remind all of us, use your precious time wisely and make the most of your life. Today I will attempt to live fully. My hope is that you too may shine like a superb atom and never lose your faith, hope, or joy for living.
