“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely, and earnestly.”

~ BUKKYO DENDO KYOKAI – Society for the Promotion of Buddhism

Life is what you make it.  The best times of your life seem to come from moments when you venture out to play in the rain while the rest of the world stays in and disparages an "ugly" day. 


The simple pleasures of friendship, health, self awareness, love, and adventure are the greatest attainments anyone could ask for.

Paradoxially, they are also the only truly priceless things you can hope to acheive, while also the easiest, and in some cases, the hardest.

“The opposite of love is not hate. The opposite of love is indifference and the opposite of happiness is boredom. Excitement is the more practical synonym of happiness and it is precisely what you should strive to chase, it’s the cure all.”  ~ Fabio Piccini
