Less than a year ago, I just happened to come across a photo of an anonymous person on a city sidewalk holding up a large poster. I remember vividly the hook for me…  This Is Your LIFE. Those four words hit home, they resonated.  But it got better as I read further… Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. BAM! This was good stuff. Stop overanalyzing, all emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. And finally, “the tour de force”: Life is Short. Live your dream and share your passion. Wow.  Talk about hit square between the eyes.  To the point, every word, every line, unadulterated, unabashed, no bullshit TRUTH. It encapsulated this brief journey we call LIFE; it leaped all cultural boundaries, it challenged us to wake up and look around, to become aware of each moment, each experience, each person, and dare to buck the status quo. Why not? This is YOUR Life. This was brilliant!  I loved it!  I had to share it with my friends. I uploaded the photo to my Facebook profile, I titled the album LIFE, spoke of how it hit home to me, and wanted to share. And the rest is history.  It went viral… big time.  ”LIFE” took on a life of it’s own, with over 26,000 likes and almost 2000 shares. And it continues to touch my life, my friends and family, and the world. Cheers, Hugs, and Love to all my friends at Holstee.  You rock!
