To live a full life, do half of what you do, twice as well.

Do you do too much?

Do you even have time to read this?

I know, I know, crazy times we live in, huh? You'd think with all this new fangled technology, it'd get easier... that somehow we'd have less to do because we do it in less time.

OK, you can stop laughing (or crying, whichever the case may be)

But it's true, isn't it... more STUFF, more ACCESS and less and less of LIFE.

It's because much of this new stuff isn't really YOU, is it?

You're not your profile.

You know it, I know it... and it's time you really know it... know what I mean?

You know that we each have the same amount of time as everyone else, right? So how come some people seem to get so much more accomplished, or seem to be enjoying their day so much more?

Because they spend more time doing what they love and being truer to who they are.

It's not their reward for being richer or prettier or more privileged... the being true part comes first.

And you can have it too.

How? Simply by cutting out half of all the stuff that's not you. I know, easier said than done, blah blah blah, but just try it... it's a yes or no, keep or get-rid kind of decision. Don't leave room for Maybe. Maybe's are just Guilty No's. So look around and be that 'cruel'... keep, discard, keep, keep, discard... it may or may not be even, but it's the start.

But then the real magic begins... don't leave any room where the No's used to be. It'll be all too easy to fill the vacuum up with junk.

Just take what you LOVE and do it more often. Once you fill up your time, there's no room to do all the other stuff.

You'll be full.

And so will your life.

Keep the light on!
