Motivation Monday

“The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.” – Ernest Hemingway, via

Who better than the gregarious Hemingway to give us this little gem?  No need to be a writer to appreciate this reminder to take it in, take it all in.

Happy Monday everyone!
