I am in love with the new Lexus print ads about moments that have been appearing in the Globe and Mail lately. It's gotten to the point where I have actually cut them out and posted them on my cubicle so that I can feel inspired in those moments (ahem) that I feel that I need them. Among my favourites from the ads:
You are the sum of your moments. Why shouldn't you be happy and hopeful and funny and famous or anything else that you choose to be? Why shouldn't you travel and laugh and smile and dream or fall deep, deep in love? Why shouldn't you conquer your fears until there aren't any left and leave all of your worries far, far behind? Why shouldn't you have the life that you've always dreamt of, the one deep down inside? You should go get it. It's yours. no regrets. Live life.
People get old, but life doesn't. Life never loses its ability to amaze. Not when you're interested. Not when you're curious. Not when you're enthusiastic and passionate and eager. Not when you fill your passport with stamps and dance at every opportunity. Not when you learn something new every day and laugh, laugh, laugh until it hurts. Not when both feet are firmly planted in the present and your greatest obsession is living. And not when you are really, truly alive.
Are you happy? Pursue what truly matters, true love, true happiness, true truths. Pursue your passion. Whatever it may be. Capture the flag, spin the bottle, unplug, play. Pursue your heart. All of it. you have no choice. Laugh. Smile. Cry. Cringe. Love. Love. Love. Pursue 'you', the one deep inside, the one dying to get out, the one looking to live life and enjoy every,
single, solitary, second of it.
It's not just how long you live, it's how much.
Moments are pearls.
