After watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, I decided that I’m going to live my life by the ABC’s:
ADVENTUROUS BRAVE CREATIVE
“To see the world,
things dangerous to come,
to see behind walls,
to draw closer,
to find each other,
and to feel.
That is the purpose of LIFE.”
The purpose of life – I love that. To feel, to connect, to love, to learn, to laugh, to cry, to be inspired, to inspire, to see, to hear, to LIVE. I’m ready for life. I’m going to find life in the small things; in the way that the roads look in the morning, in the sound of the flying planes over my house, in the quiet of the woods. I’m going to find life and take pictures with my mind and love it. I’m going to love it with all my heart and all my flaws and oddness and broken parts. I’m going to love it with all that I have and all that I am.
As I walked home from English Bay the other day, I thought to myself that I was “leaving life,” but I’m done with thinking like that. I’m making a promise to myself to live with the hopeful soul of a young girl, and the bright, eager eyes of a child, and the kindness and firmness of a mother. I’m ready to go after the things I want and to say ‘no’ to the things I don’t want
To be kind, curious, inspired, and above all, happy – that is my purpose in life.
