One of the greatest mistakes we as humans frequently make is dealing with the truth that our life is a single thread. I've come to understand that every area of my life is interconnected and I am the common factor in each one. When we try to focus on one without addressing another we fail to establish balance that allows us to live authentically -true to self.
It's a lot of work being human and fully occupying your own life requires a love for life and discipline. What this means is, until we accept that we are here and decide to make the most of it, we will look outside of ourselves for change. Change however, comes from within each individual and collectively we bring about change - one individual at a time. Let this be the thread that weaves through your life, you being committed to living life to its fullest.
