I cannot live without my lifePosted: July 8, 2011
‘Live each day as if it’s your last’, that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to simply try and be good and courageous and bold and to make a difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Go out there with your passion and your electric typewriter and work hard at…something. Change lives through art maybe. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance.
One Day, David Nicholls
Just finished this book and thought I’d share a paragraph. I think it kind of makes me excited to be alive. And not just because of the ‘Change lives through art’ part. All of it speaks of optimism, having adventures, learning new things, falling down and picking yourself back up again. This way of living seems much more honest and real to what I’m used to. I’m tired of feeling guilty and for not doing enough or not doing anything at all.
I don’t know. These words just took my breath away.
I love books.
