Take care of your Thoughts
because they become Words.
Take care of your Words
because they will become Actions.
Take care of your Actions
because they will become Habits.
Take care of your Habits
because they will form your Character.
Take care of your Character
because it will form your Destiny,
and your Destiny will be your Life.

-The Dalai Lama

The long shadow of Mt. Rainier


I’ve flown by Mount Rainier many times, driven by it, snowshoed on it, saw it literally every day while we lived in Seattle. (When it wasn’t cloudy and raining, that is!)

It was breathtaking every time.

Isn’t it amazing that something you see so often can still take your breath away? And it’s all because when you take time to look, you are living in the moment.

Take that same level of focus and apply it to the other amazing “every day” things in your life — your significant other, your kids, your family, your friends. You won’t regret a single moment.
