Get creating


I found it in a little shop at the seaside.  Out with friends for the day, enjoying glorious sunshine and great company.  We had fish and chips on the pebbles and paddled in the sea – not too cold.  And larked around – as we do; and laughed outrageously!  Before the next part of our road trip, we browsed the few shops on the sea front; and it caught my eye.  I was drawn to it – not to its image, as it didn’t have any.  The word ‘Life’ grabbed my attention, and I paused to read it.  Wow!  Inspiring – a bit of an over-used word; but that’s what it was, and is.  So in case you haven’t read it, here it is:

This is your LIFE.  Do what you love, and do it often.  If you don’t like something, change it.  If you don’t like your job, quit.  If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.  If you are looking for the love of your life, Stop: they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.  Stop over analyzing, all emotions are beautiful.  When you eat, appreciate every last bite.  Life is simple.  Open you mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences.  Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them.  Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.  Some opportunities only come once, seize them.  Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating.  Life is short.  Live your dream, and wear you passion.’          [The Holstee Manifesto’ 2009]
