“The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.” ~Jack London 1876 – 1916
Dogs live in the moment. They don’t stress over what happened yesterday, or worry about tomorrow. Jack London only lived to the age of 40. But look what he did in those few short years he had. Life is not about how long you live, it’s about what you do with the time you have.
You won’t find me being a Vegan, drinking bottled water, or going to the doctor whose job is to find something wrong with me. I’m always busy writing, painting, playing music, or working with the dogs.
“To spend time is to pass it in a specified manner. To waste time is to expend it thoughtlessly or carelessly. We all have time to either spend or waste and it is our decision what to do with it. But once passed, it is gone forever.”
“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” ~ Bruce Lee
