Today is Friday. I love Fridays! Just as much as I love Mondays and Wednesdays and any other day of the week.
If you hate Mondays and can't wait for the weekend to come, maybe you want to look a little bit closer as to why.
Too many people are wasting their life, working in jobs they don't enjoy, just for the sake of making money or maybe because they get along with their boss or workmates so well. Money is important, I get that. And feeling appreciated too. But how much better would it be to make money doing what YOU love?? Instead of doing what others ask you to do? Think about it.
Now, what is stopping you? Convenience? Comfort? Fear of change? But isn't Change the most exciting bit? New beginnings, fresh start, new friendships, more learnings, plenty of opportunities, excitement....
Maybe what is holding you back is that you simply don't know what you would actually love to do? .
If you don't know what your passion is, what makes you feel fulfilled and accomplished, what gives your life meaning, then let me tell you one thing: Don't waste another day pondering.
Go out there and explore what the world has to offer! Try new things, learn new skills, ask questions, go to workshops, meet inspiring people - be curious!
Make it a priority to find out what your gifts are. Make it a priority to find out what lights up your heart. Make it a priority to find THE thing to do which brings you that much joy, you can not wait to jump out of bed in the morning, regardless of what day of the week it is.
THAT is what life is meant to be! Fun, Happiness, Fulfilment, Being on Purpose, Pursuing your wildest dreams and feeling deep Gratitude for each and every day you are able to share your gifts and be of service.
That is what life is to me. I could not imagine it to be any other way.
Remember, It's all up to you.
Only you can change your life, noone else can.
Never stop being curious.
Never stop dreaming.
Never stop going for more in life.
It's an adventure! It's fun!
Now go out and explore.
You deserve it <3
So what are you going to do endeavour this weekend? Whatever it is, have tons of fun!
Despite all of the obstacles in just getting here yesterday: trying to get home from work in time, getting pulled over and almost getting a ticket even though I wasn't speeding (seriously, I wasn't), having our original flights delayed to the point we wouldn't make them, having to switch flights and hearing that those were likely gonna be delayed too (thankfully we just made it in time), barely eating anything all day, and getting in 3 hours later than scheduled to find out that rain had soaked my bag and half of my clothes.... I can say that seeing this view, Lake Tahoe, made it all worth it. #LiveToExplore #becurious #laketahoe
Ricinus communis, the castorbean or castor-oil-plant, is a species of perennial flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae.
The evolution of castor and its relation to other species are currently being studied using modern genetic tools. It reproduces with a mixed pollination system which favors selfing by geitonogamy but at the same time can be an out-crosser by anemophily (wind pollination) or entomophily (insect pollination). It is a fast-growing shrub or small tree which is a highly prolific and precocious producer of toxic seeds, very adaptable to different environments and has been widely distributed by man.
Probably a native to North-Eastern Africa (i.e., Ethiopia and Somalia). Currently, naturalized populations can be found across the African continent, from the Atlantic coast to the Red Sea, from Tunisia to South Africa and on islands in the Indian Ocean. It is widely cultivated and naturalized in tropical and subtropical regions of America and Asia and in many temperate areas of Europe. It naturalizes easily and grows in many areas as a common ruderal plant.
It is highly poisonous and the seeds are particularly dangerous.
The seed oil is the most important product of castor. All over the world, the traditional use is for illumination and medicine, the first being obsolete since the introduction of kerosene and electricity. The medicinal use of the oil and of other parts of the plant is still common, especially as a purge (internally) and for various sores (externally). At present, the oil is produced mainly as basic material for industry, particularly as a lubricant. The presscake is poisonous and cannot be fed to animals. It is used as fertilizer or as fuel. The castor oil also has commercial value for making soap, margarine, lubricants, paints, inks, plastics, and linoleum. The crop is also regarded as a useful feedstock for biodiesel production.
