Apr 4, 2011
I feel very adventurous.
There are so many doors to be opened,
and I’m not afraid to look behind them.

The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people
create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives,
passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between
the two is the difference between living fully and just existing.
-Michael Gerber submitted by Christopher, Pittsburgh PA
Life can be exhilarating and exhausting, exciting and frustrating, engaging
and devastating. All at once, even! Sometimes we get so overwhelmed by the
stuff happening to us that we forget that fully living means embracing the
good stuff, bracing for the bad stuff, and always remembering that we have
choices to make and actions to take that can help us face the craziness and
influence how things turn out from here.
Whether you are facing teeny or titanic challenges this week, I dare you to
channel the energy of the late, great Elizabeth Taylor and look behind every
door to find your adventure.
