Tuesdays Are For Inspiration

You're running out of time.
Time is a pressing matter so I figured I'd cut right to the chase.
Today is Tuesday, but it's the last January 17th, 2012 you'll ever have and you can waste it trying to be extra cool or you can stop trying so hard to have it all together and just live.

You can stop making efforts where you aren't getting anywhere.
You can start investing where there's a need.
You can stop making excuses and finally put your money where your mouth is.

Or you can keep getting older.
And you can keep yourself entertained.
And then one day you'll die and at your funeral we'll all talk about the amazing impact you had on Twitter.

So this Tuesday, live fiercely and love well.
Because, what better way to remember today?

Typographic verses

Do not thing that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary.
What we need is to love without getting tired.
-Mother Theresa

Show me how to love like you have loved me.
Break my heart for what breaks yours.
-"Hosanna", Hillsong

Love not as an excuse for the mushy and innocuous
but love as a summons to battle against all that is
unlovely & unloving in this world.
-Frederich Buechner

Love is the only shocking act left on the planet.
-Reed Bennett, "Valentine's Day"
