Some Stuff I’m Thinking About – 10.14.23

Each & Every Saturday – I spend some time writing about things that are kicking around in my head right now. 

The Song of Passion

Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” – Oprah Winfrey

Life’s song is often most beautiful when it’s sung with passion. What has been on my mind lately is the extraordinary energy that comes from pursuing what truly excites us. It’s about finding the things that make our hearts beat a little faster, our spirits soar, and our days feel more purposeful.

Just like the lyrics of a favorite song, our passions give meaning to our existence. They guide us on a journey filled with enthusiasm and joy. Whether it’s a creative pursuit, a cause you believe in, or a hobby that fills your soul, embrace it with all your heart.

As the lyrics of the classic Beatles’ song go, “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” So, let your passion be the love you make in the world.

The Rhythm of Progress

“Life can only be understood backward, but it must be lived forward.” – Søren Kierkegaard

Progress is the rhythm that propels us forward in our journey through life. It’s the beat of learning, growing, and evolving as individuals. Lately, I’ve been contemplating the idea that life’s greatest lessons are often best understood in hindsight.

Much like the way a song’s melody takes shape over time, our lives form a unique composition. It’s through the trials and triumphs, the high notes and low notes, that we find the melody that is uniquely ours. Progress is the journey of discovery that helps us create the symphony of our lives.

As the legendary Bob Dylan once sang, “May you have a strong foundation when the winds of changes shift.” Embrace the winds of change, for they are the agents of progress in the grand composition of life.

The Pursuit of Dreams

I’m not afraid of dying. I’m afraid of not trying.” – Jay-Z

The pursuit of our dreams is like composing a melody that resonates with our deepest desires and aspirations. In my thoughts lately, I’ve found that it’s not the fear of failure that holds us back the most, but the fear of not trying at all.

Just as a beautiful song takes shape note by note, our dreams come to life through the small, deliberate steps we take. They are the lines of music in the score of our lives. Pursuing our dreams is the soundtrack that fills our days with purpose and joy.

As the lyrics from the classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen suggest, “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?” Don’t let life’s dreams be mere fantasies; make them the real-life soundtrack of your journey.

Life is like a complex and beautiful song. It’s a harmonious interplay of passion, progress, and the pursuit of our dreams. As we continue our journey through this intricate melody, let’s remember to savor the lyrics, embrace the rhythm, and live each day as a new verse in the epic song of our lives.
