Live Purpose Driven.

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. Steve Jobs.

Life is short. Find your purpose and you’ll find yourself – loving each and every day.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay on your chosen path.

Thank you for reading me. I hope to see you back here soon.

You Have Choices…

A lot of life is about the choices you make.

you-have-choices-drew-simmie

Some are more difficult to make than others. It’s always the most important ones that are the hardest.

The most fundamental one is how you view life. Everything flows from there.

Our society is entering a trying time. Buffeted by a steady stream of threatening, pressing issues, it is easier to think that the good years of the past 40-50 years are fast fading from view, or you can think of life as a wonderful, magical ride, albeit with with many bumps and unexpected sharp curves but well worth the ticket – devoting your best energies to what really  matters and holds meaning for you.

In his book, Seize The Day, Saul Bellow wrote, “If you think that historical forces are sending everybody straight to hell, you can either go resignedly with the procession or hold out, and hold out not from pride or other personal motives, but from admiration and love for human abilities and powers which, without exaggeration, the words ‘miracle’ and ‘sublimity’ can be applied.”

Read his words again. This time, say them out loud so you can hear your own voice speaking.

Hang in there. Life, indeed, is truly amazing for those who believe in themselves.

The choice is yours.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  As always, thank you for reading me.

I look forward to seeing you back here soon.

Expand Your Horizon

A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to it’s old dimension. Oliver Wendell Holmes.change-take-life-into-your-hans-drew-simmie

We hear and read daily about how the world is changing but, in reality, it is we who are changing. Change is not new. Down through the millennia, it has always been with us.

Change doesn’t come without or from what’s in the drinking water; it comes from within when a brave soul is willing to challenge the status quo, or sees a new idea or application no one saw before, or who can’t suffer one more indignation in silence any longer.

Ever curious, they never stop looking for innovative ways to grow and improve their lives and circumstances and those of others. Pessimism, irony and negativity have no place in their world view.

Life is divided into three terms, wrote the poet William Wordsworth, that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present, to live better in the future.

Life is complicated. Deciding to start down a new road isn’t easy. One of hardest things in life is to know is which new bridge to cross and which to burn down behind you. In the final analysis, you are on your own.

Expanding your horizon, living life on your own terms, is all about refreshing your spirit, digging down into the furtherest, deepest corner of your heart and following what your heart tells you, staying connected to the real you and your own unique special brand of magic.

Not surprisingly, the moment you do that, you immediately start growing again.

We have entered a new era in our society. It isn’t for the doubters and naysayers. It’s for the adventurous, fresh thinkers and big hearts.

This is not for everyone, but if you find this resonating, I challenge you to dare to dream again, to push yourself to do more, experience more, and tap once again into your greatness. You already have all the tools you need. Just go out and do it.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay relevant.

I hope to see you here again soon.

Be Part of the YES Group.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead.

say-yes-positive-change-drew-simmie

It has been a rough 2+years for everyone, challenging in so many ways.

At this moment in history, there is seemingly no shortage of people eager to deny the truth, to exclude large groups of others, to criticize, close off their hearts and say NO.

This group sees life through the rear view mirror, blind to the future. YES is not in their vocabulary.

Contrary to the NO’s, the YES group  has always been in the minority but today, more than ever, there has never been a greater need for people to stand up, step up to the plate and say YES – to what needs to be done. To what’s right, not just expedient. People like you.

There is power in words. One of the most powerful is YES!

YES. It’s OK to put your work out into the world.

YES. You are capable of doing good work and making a difference in the world.

YES. What you are doing is important.

The future beckons.

Hmm…

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay relevant.  I hope to see you back here again soon.

Thank you for reading me.

Fly With the Eagles

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. Mark Twain.

soar-like-eagle-2

Whatever your dreams, whatever you’re building or trying to accomplish, widen your circle of people with like-minded folks, fellow travellers, who will nourish your soul, broaden your mind and lighten your heart.

The road is always a little easier when you are hanging out with the right crowd.

Fly with the eagles, not with the ducks.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  As always, thank you for reading me.

I look forward to seeing you back here soon.
