Haha you know I always think of the same thing every time I am exercising. It definitely pushes me to go further when I realize that I'm not even close to dying. I can always do that extra mile :)

Thanks! You can't go wrong with a passage by Emerson. I gotta admit that is the first time I've heard that farewell line!

Thanks for the comment! I love the way you explained that - "We make a simple thing like life complicated and then spend the rest of our days trying to make them simple again when life was simple to begin with." Your words remind me of a quote by the Dalai Lama. When asked what surprised him most about humanity, he answered…

"Man.
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

Thank you for writing! I completely agree with everything you said. I find it amazing sometimes when I look back at my week and realize I have not spent one second without my phone being within five feet of me. I am always constantly waiting for the next call, text, or Facebook message. I love how you said the "sound of my thoughts". That's exactly what I'm striving more to do and have started taking walks without my phone in an effort to just think. It's refreshing to be unreachable for a while.

I figured you out of all people would appreciate that one. Everyone should check out Kyle's site (www.selfmadeu.com), which will soon dive head first into this topic.

Wallace Wattles talks a lot about this! He states that every truly happy and successful person did not compete with others but created value where it was not there before, boosting everyone in the process. Thanks for the comment!
