"I'll Sleep When I Die"

Happy Friday!

So last Friday I got a little introspective/inspirational on you, and to my surprise I received several emails and notes about how much you liked that particular quote and my note.

So, what the heck, I thought I'd do it again this Friday. Here it goes--my mantra has been for some time -- "I'LL SLEEP WHEN I DIE".  

What I mean by this is that life has too much to offer to slack off, settle, and not be motivated to do and be your best.  When we die, as obvious as it is, in my mind, that's it. I'll rest forever, but for now while I have air in my lungs and have the ability to walk and talk--I'm going to do my best to live life to fullest. 

How about you? What are your passions, motivations?  What get's you going in the morning?

 I absolutely love that I have a jam packed schedule 90% of the time. Yes, I complain here and there, but really I'm not THAT bothered by it and I love filling my days with client meetings, coffee and lunch dates, family outings, design events and travel. 

I'm the friend who sometimes books coffee dates back to back and I wouldn't have it any other way. 
My retired parents think my schedule can be a bit crazy, but it makes me happy. 

This post is also for a friend of mine whom I won't name who is kind of "stuck" right now in life. 
I guess when something is bothering you, you are down on your luck, or unfortunate events have taken place, sometimes there is no place to go but UP.. And, perhaps this is a blessing in that you have a clean slate to go after what you truly want.  

So, for this weekend I hope you do more to fulfill yourself and your dreams and help others while you're at. After all, you can sleep later :)

XOXO
Jennifer
