My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.

Look at someone you love today,
for one minute,
as if you saw them for
the first time.
As if they were the first ray
of sunlight, caught by
the tender passion of your eye,
lighting up your whole world.
— Ron Starbuck, Death (via hellanne)

How much more blessed can I be?
