It's all make believe until you make what you believe.

Do you remember being a kid, imagining dragons in the clouds and believing that you could be anything you dreamed about?

Do you know why your life turned out differently? Not because you 'grew up' or 'got real' but because you started to believe in other things.

The magic still works, you just started playing different tricks.

Now you imagine th at the dragons are at your door and that who you are 'supposed' to be is much smaller than a child's imagination.

It's only 'too late' if you believe it is... It's only impossible if you say so...

Yet just imagine what life could be like if we let our imaginations lead the way.

Can you imagine?

Keep the light on,

Don't regret so much that you'll regret it later.

I have a friend who's biggest regret is that he lost so much time regretting his past. He's probably regretting that he's doing that right now.

It's not that he was doing anything particularly wrong back then... except not enjoying it... not living in it. But why try to live in the past now, when you didn't do it when you were there?

(How can you have regrets if you didn't gret in the first place?)

There's no fix for that... but the thing to do about it is LIVE NOW.

Yeah, just live now.

It's not like you have to do anything special to get here, now... so just be here, now.

There's no time for regrets now, or later, if you fill this moment up with NOW.

...and if you're all filled up with Now now, you won't have room for regret later either.

So now, what's it gonna be?

Now now now,

Keep the light on!

A painting rises above the paint.

When you look at a work of art, you don't really see the paint, do you? You see the colors, the subject, the story, the artist's loving hand... all sorts of things... but not necessarily the paint itself.

A true masterpiece rises above all that it is made of.

You are a masterpiece.

So don't get so bogged down in the little bits of you. They are a part of... but apart from... all that is you.

And don't just rise above one little bit of you... rise above it all.

Keep the light on.
