Push your limits

Quote

I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you can see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.

Kurt Vonnegut

What do you pretend to be?

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

Kurt Vonnegut

The amber of the moment

Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.

Go into the arts.

Go into the arts. I’m not kidding.

The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake.

Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem.

Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward.

You will have created something.

Kurt Vonnegut

The world is a beatiful place

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.

Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe the world to be a beatiful place.

Kurt Vonnegut

As simple as that.

The world is beatiful, never ever lose your trust in that.

Enjoy everything

Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.

Kurt Vonnegut

You can always enjoy yourself. Take the time to stop whatever you are doing right now, look at yourself, at your life, at your consciousness and realize how good things are.

Take time to appreciate small things. Have to get up early? Enjoy the silence of the morning, hearing only the birds and few people. Have to work long? Enjoy the fact that somebody values your work and is willing to pay for it.

Enjoy your food, your drinks, your sleep.

Take nothing for granted!

Enjoy the fuck out of every moment, every situation you have for there is no other way to happiness an pleasure! Once you have managed to enjoy all the little things in life, who could possibly steal the fun from you? Think about it and every once in a while: Just smile and enjoy 😉
