Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."   ~Steve Jobs

I stumbled upon this amazing talk here.  Thank you so much, Kelley

Follow your intuition & curiosity
Be a beginner.
Don't waste your time living someone else's life
Keep the faith
Find what you love
Let go of what others think and listen to your own voice
Stay hungry.
Follow your heart.  Follow your heart.  Follow your heart

Steve Job's words gave me goosebumps and chills and tears. It summed up so beautifully what I know to be true.  

Heart, I am listening.  
All else, I'm ready to let you fall, fall away.

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." ~ Steve Jobs
