I have been super busy in the past couple days – went to Kripalu yoga center for the weekend, NYC for two days, preparing my photography final portfolio, and etc… I was too busy to cook, too busy to blog, even too busy to think in the past two weeks. Finally, everything seems to quiet down a bit. On my way to work today, my brain start thinking and I have something to say from the bottom of my heart.
If the world ends on Saturday, (which we all know is NOT gonna happen. Sorry God, no offense), what would you do? Party all night, dance all night or drink all night?
In my favorite book, Tuesdays with Morrie, Morrie said “Every day, have a little bird on your shoulder that asks, Is today the day? Am I ready? Am I doing all I need to do? Am I being the person I want to be?… The truth is once you learn how to die, you learn how to live; Most of us walk around as if we were sleepwalking. We really don’t experience the world fully because we are half asleep, doing things we automatically think we have to do; Learn how to die, and you learn how to live.”
Yes, learn how to die, and you learn how to live. We don’t need to wait until the day before we die to do or say things we always wanted to say, always wanted to do. If the world ends on Saturday, I want to say thank you to all the people who have shown up in my life. My life is colorful and meaningful because of y’all. I am grateful to have the best family in the world, best friends around me, and the best boss ever (yes, it’s you, Mark. I am not saying this because you might read my blog. I am saying this from the bottom of my heart). Last but not least, I want to say I love you to all the people I love, especially you, Nav!
Here’s the final portfolio I put together for my photography class, which will be criticized by all my classmates tonight. Hopefully they won’t be too harsh on me…
