Map Out Your Future

My aunt send this to me in an email today, and I just had to share it with you.

A pencil maker told the pencil 5 important lessons just before putting it the box

1.) Everything you do will always leave a mark

2.) You can always correct the mistakes you make

3.) What is important is what is inside of you

4.) In life, you will undergo painful sharpenings which will only make you better

5.) To be the best pencil, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the hand that holds you.

I always love hearing, reading, seeing things that make me appreciate life that much more. I mean this 'pencil' analogy kind of makes me realize that nothing is ever insignificant, least of all you. And I love this because like the pencil, it does not matter how tall short, skinny or fat you are what matters the absolute most is what is inside of you.

Totally rad.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week {so far}

This is me right now, flat out exhausted. I need a red bull.
