Life is beautiful because it isn’t eternal; it has an ending. We often think that perfection is everlasting, but that isn’t true. Perfection is objective and that which has no end we see of little value.

Throughout our lives, we will lose many friends and family members. We will see people brought into this world, and we will see people — maybe even those same people — leave it. Losing someone close to you is very difficult to cope with, but it does help you understand how valuable, fragile and beautiful this life is.

Losing a loved one gives you a newfound appreciation for existence itself.

Look in the mirror… that’s your competition.

A Quote from “Lean In”

"When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitments phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated, and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist, and trust me, over time, nothing is sexier".

Beautiful Chihuly exhibition at Denver Botanic Gardens

Denver Botanic Gardens presents the Rocky Mountain Region’s first major outdoor exhibition of artwork by celebrated American artist, Dale Chihuly. Chihuly’s sculptures – ranging in size and form – add bold colors and dramatic beauty to the Gardens’ 24-acre urban oasis.

Chihuly is credited with revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement and elevating the perception of the glass medium from the realm of craft to fine art. He is renowned for ambitious architectural installations around the world, in historic cities, museums and gardens.

Ask yourself

You must constantly ask yourself these questions:

  • Who am I around?
  • What are they doing to me?
  • What have they got me reading?
  • What have they got me saying?
  • Where do they have me going?
  • What do they have me thinking?
  • And most important, what do they have me becoming?

Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay? Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.

Big dreams, a lot of compassion, and a hint of creativity! Stay a while.
