Now I don’t know if this is really from Jim Carrey, but the message strikes hard and deep. Oh, that we learn to live in the moment!
This has got to be one of my new favorite quotes. I used to be a person full of fear, which I thought I had overcome. I guess to a certain degree, I did overcome many of my fears.
Once again I find myself at a stage where I face the need for courage. There are days when it comes a-roaring like the a Mack truck at full speed. There are, however, many days when courage seems to slink around like a hunter stalking its prey. Today, courage just seemed to give up on me.
Then as I lay in bed looking back at the events of the day, this quote came back to me. I think that’s courage whispering in my ear, telling me that tomorrow is another day. I hope it comes to you when you need it most as well.
Everyone has heard or read this quote at least once by now. The recently departed Steve Jobs has indeed left a mark on our generation, and this quote is perhaps one of the most popular (if not the most inspiring) that can be attributed to him.
If this quote means much to you, you might want to get a letterpress poster featuring the quote in its entirety. Uncrate is accepting orders till December 17. A poster costs $100-$200. (You didn’t think it would come cheaply, did you? After all, it is still an Apple-related product!)
Each poster measures in at 10 x 26 inches, is printed on 100% cotton and handmade Arches 140# paper. There are only 500 prints available, so if you really want one, I suggest not waiting.
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” ~ Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
This Dr. Seuss quote is a great reminder that we have control over ourselves, our decisions, and our plans. We ought not to lay the responsibility on other people. Only we can think for ourselves.
Best not to “lose your mind” and “find your voice” on the same day. ~ Twitter user KnowledgeBishop.
Or the same week, or whatever period is applicable.
How true this is! In many things, we need to give ourselves time and space before we make decisions. While some life changing events can happen in mere moments, there are a lot of things in life that need more deliberate action and thought. A lesson in patience and a test in character is to give yourself enough time to ponder on things.
