Blogger Diary: Life Moves On

Post image for Blogger Diary: Life Moves On

“Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.”

- Henry Miller

Every once in a while you come across a quote at the exact perfect moment…when truer words could not be spoken, almost as if someone knew you needed to hear these words and and an invisible force held them up  in front of your eyes. I am taking these words and holding them close throughout this year. I don’t like to make new year’s resolutions, more “life resolutions,” but like I mentioned in the previous post, I did make a list of things that I’d really like to do before the year is over.  I have a feeling I’ll be able to accomplish them all :)

I want to work on my photography, and learn how to cook – I’m not talking fancy cooking, I’d just like to be able to make something! I want to spend more time at my beach house this year, and I want to visit San Francisco at some point and see my friends there. I used to be one of those people who went to yoga almost every single day – religiously. Ever since breaking my ankle, I don’t go nearly as often, and I still don’t feel comfortable taking the advanced classes I used to, but I think I can get back to it this year. I also ran track through my entire youth and want to start running again, if my ankle and bad knees let me. Lastly… I’m pretty sure I’m getting my next tattoo this year ;)

1.I gave up meat 2. I gave up sweets (for the most part!) 3. start to eat healthier and really promise to work out & do yoga 4. & I adopted a chilean child through a charity!

After years of failed resolutions, I’m resolving to live. Truly. Honestly. Vividly. And to make the best of things.

I think you’re doing well for the photography part of your resolutions. What camera/editing did you use?

Find love. Be loved. Give love. My goal is to find a real definition of love and leave all the failed thoughts behind me.

Even I feel that I needed to hear these words, the words of Henry Miller at this moment. They came to me at right moment.

I haven’t done my NY resolutions, but I may go for a great to-do list. Thanks. And your quote is so true. Thanks again.

I love this quote. It just fits me right about now.
This is the first year I don’t have any resolutions. I’m just going to keep moving forward. I do have goals, and I know I’ll get there eventually.
I wish you all the best this new year!
XOXO

Such great ideas! I have a really crappy knee, I used to love athletics and running. Would love to get back into that sometime. I wish I could cook, too! Growing up Mum did all the cooking and we never tried to learn so…I’m 23, living alone, eating microwave meals…
