An extraordinary life

‘An extraordinary life—a life to be proud of—is a decision. Not a single decision, but a myriad of little decisions each day. Daily decisions about money and health and passion and contribution. One day at a time. These decisions add up until one day you look over your shoulder and realize you’ve created an extraordinary life.’
-The Minimalists

But I believe it has to begin with a single decision. A decision that you want more out of life, that you are willing to make some sacrifices to have a life filled with things you love. A willingness to think outside the box and explore new possibilities and opportunities without just brushing them off and following the path of least resistance. A commitment to do things that intimidate you and push you outside your comfort zone. An understanding that lasting success probably won’t come quickly or without hard work.

And the unshakable belief that it is all 100% worth it to be doing the things you are passionate about. To be using your unique gifts and strengths and giving them to the world in a way that only you can do.

Only then can you get to work making those daily choices that drive your life in the direction you choose.
