A Psalm of Life

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,

Life is but an empty dream!

For the soul is dead that slumbers,

And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!

And the grave is not its goal;

Dust thou art, to dust returnest,

Was not spoken of the soul.

*Live life to its fullest, find a purpose, and leave a lasting legacy for future generations. A Psalm of Life is meant to encourage you to spend your life, however short it might be, in pursuit of meaningful, compassionate acts that will change the lives of others…. those living, and those to come.

Image result for rashida jones

“I had the full princess fantasy: the white horse, the whole being saved from my life, which is ridiculous. What do I want to be saved from? My life’s great! But it’s just this weird thing that’s been hammered into my head culturally: that’s the only way to succeed, that’s the only thing that counts for a woman. I’m happy, but the fact that I’m not married and don’t have kids – it’s taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don’t feel like I’m some sort of loser.”

*If you are happily married with kids – good for you. If not, be OK with that – this doesn’t make you a loser.

Every morning Steve Jobs would ask himself this question:

“If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today?”  – Steve Jobs
