Most of us cannot physically live the vacation life on a daily basis. While that may be nice, we can live the vacation life every moment with the right mindset.
We can find joy in all of our life's seasons. In fact, we bring the joy.
Living life is similar to singing harmony in a choir. It requires awareness of yourself and those around you AND the realization that you only get to change your own performance.

Much like a caged lion instinctively yearns for more than a caged life, we to yearn to be free. Breakout of your cage!
Learning to Love
We can leave many things for our children. Love may be the best of them.
Without making mistakes, there is no way to learn. If you can learn from your mistakes, then you have already transformed garbage into flowers.
Sands of Time
Look at the sand we have left in the top of the hourglass and find a way to use every single grain to our fullest and most joyful capacity.
The desire to understand ourselves and to understand life is a deep thirst. There’s also the deep thirst to be loved and to love.
Practicing loving kindness meditation is like digging deep into the ground until we reach the purest water.
