Protecting the Asset

The best asset we have for making a contribution to the world is ourselves
— Greg McKeown

You must invest in the complete you.  Every bit of you, without skimping.  You must invest in your mind, your body, and your spirit.  If you don't take the time to, you might miss the opportunity to offer the world something that no one else can, a full and unique you.  I have been taking the time to invest in myself.  It's hard and believe it or not, actually takes work.  

There might be backlash from those around you that don't fully understand or take the time to really open their eyes to what it is you are after.  But don't let that discourage you.  I've realized that if I don't value and put myself first, things I don't want filling that space, start to take up room, and clearing it all back out can be a lengthy process.

Start now.  Invest in yourself so that you can give the world something that no one else can.

Living & Inanimate

The most notable distinction between living and inanimate beings is that the former maintain themselves by renewal
— Dewey

Do not be stagnate.  Do not be afraid to grow.  There will be ups and downs for sure, but try not to let those scare you.  Sometimes its hard to trust the process and enjoy the journey when you have an end game in mind but you'll miss so many of the good things if you don't consciously look for the joys in the little things.  Taking a breath, hanging out, and doing nothing, can sometimes be the best thing for you when you're constantly moving 500 miles an hour.
