What could be more motivating than Life itself?

i thank You God for this most amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any—lifted from the no
of all nothing—human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

~E.E. Cummings

We can’t control our successes and failures, we can only know we tried our hardest. A wise walrus once told me to relax and have faith in the time I put into studying in the days prior to the exam. Taking an exam is like rock climbing, you need to relax your muscles inbetween climbs so you can climb better, hardest and stronger for longer. For now, the most I can do is stay positive and remember what it means for me to be alive. More hiking, more trees, more birds singing and fresh air, more rock climbing, more laughter, so many friends that I love tremendously.

…Aaand a nice whiskey ginger to sip on at the end of this week.



One thought on “What could be more motivating than Life itself?

  1. Very profound post Doctora

    As the walrus said to the seal, relax, in your life you are destined to help people, you have compassion and concern for all, you will do great deeds in your life

    Four more days and I will toast your success but the sweetest thing will be when you are here with us and we celebrate your achievement and what your talents and knowledge will bring to folks in distress and need.

    Love you, old Yoda will be with you all your life
