" the biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy." - Forbes

things are really moving for me, i can feel a shift in my life and i am so ready for the new-ness, the change. every so many years, i get the hankering to move forward, take on an even larger challenge and get settled in it. maybe its b/c i love conflict and that feeling of tension and living in that energy. but more than that, i think i love progression. moving forward. stepping into that foreign place, not knowing what is to come, hurdling over greater and deeper rooted fears...one of my favorite quotes, that i have basically made my modus operandi is a quote by the Beloved Guardian of the Baha'i Faith:

"We can never afford to rest on our oars, for if we do, we soon see ourselves carried downstream again."

i love this and i try to live this. since completing my Masters thesis and making a really neat short film, working in a job in Sodak which i love, fighting for justice for a people i utterly respect and love, i feel really amazing! and i also feel that it is time for something new.

things are happening and it is really exciting. i will inform you more once it materializes. but that Forbes quote above i came across today and am really feeling it, b/c of where i'm at in my life...how i feel like i am and will always fight to do what i love and love what i do - THAT is quality of life. that is something we should all fight for within ourselves. no one is holding me back, but myself. word 'em up.
