“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
“I have a dream…”
― Martin Luther King, Jr.
In memory of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A few of my fave quotes by him.
The arrival of another year is a time for reflection. What did I do, what did I not do? Time please slow down; there’s so much I want and need to do.
One year, one month, one day, one change at a time.
I have a bad habit of wanting to do too many things all at once. In a way, I feel that I’m busy, and I love that feeling because I feel that I’m productive. But sometimes that gets overwhelming, and I’m actually less focused and inconsistent since I’m spread so thin. Small steps, big changes.
Change, like happiness, is not a destination or a switch to be flipped but a never-ending process. We achieve the life we desire when we begin living in the moment, for the moment. So as much as it is doing, it is being. So enjoy the transformation in the pursuit of happiness. With this mindset, we can do anything.
