    Complacency Is The Death Of Life

    This is one of the things I am most passionate about, that life is what you make it, simply because it is true. My favourite quote about life is by Jon Krakauer (the author of Into the Wild and a few other really wonderful books)- “So many people live within unhappy...

    Yep

    Life is as magical as we make it. That´s for sure. Something we need to constantly remind ourselves of though, so it doesn´t get lot in the daily grind.

    Life is a series of moments

    that make up a whole. Some moments bitter, and cruel. Some moments are passionate, and beautiful. Hold on to all of your moments, but hold on more tightly to the beautiful ones, let them be the ones that shape you, and drive you. Learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of...
