I am sitting here on the beach in Wilmington, NC, relaxing and enjoying the amazing weather and my general good health. I can- and do- run on the beach, jump in the surf, swim in the ocean, look far down the horizon… I am reading a couple of books and one referenced a Dalai Lama quote I thought I’d share. So many view success in monetary terms only. Money affords a great many things but a broader view of success makes for a happy, rich, rewarding life. This quote is from Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity. “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived. ”Don’t let the above be your description. Enjoy the holiday. Remember those who have passed and appreciate that YOU are still alive!
