I'm really enjoying the concept of being outside and surfing the web. I feel less like a slacker for being on the internet. Being outdoors feels good. Fresh air, cool breeze, and the sounds of South Side.
That just may be the most up beat LJ post I've made in a long time. Life is good....at least for now.

So here I am with my iPod Touch. Is it sad that I strolled around my apartment complex looking for an open wifi network? So, as you may have geussed I'm making this post from in front of some stranger's apartment. I love technology.
First you make your habits, and then your habits make you.
You become a slave to your constantly repeated acts.
What at first you chose, at last compels.
Your thoughts lead you to a purpose.
Your purpose moves you to take action.
Your actions form your habits.
Your habits determine your character,
and your character fixes your destiny.
Your habits are either the best of servants or the worst of masters.
Once in motion, a pattern tends to stay in motion.

If ever there were a time to dare,
To make a difference,
To embark on something worth doing,
It is now.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily-
But for something that tugs at your heart,
Something that's your aspiration,
Something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
Know... that things worth doing seldom come easy,
There will be times when you want to turn around,
Pack it up,
Call it quits.
Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself,
That you are not afraid to learn by trying,
Because with an idea, determination and the right tools,
You can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect and your heart guide you.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great.
Anything is possible.
There is only one you.
And you will pass this way only once.
Do it right.
The Life Of Your Dreams
Many of us are familiar with the experience of waking up to the fact that our lives are no longer working the way we have set them up. Sometimes this is due to a shift occurring inside ourselves over time, and sometimes it is part of the larger shift that is currently affecting all humanity. Change is happening at such an increased rate that it is difficult to predict what the future holds. As a result, many of the old ways of planning out a life are no longer applicable, and if we cling to them we feel strangely out of tune with reality. If we are in tune with the energies around us, we will begin to question ideas that just a few years ago seemed sensible.
In the simplest terms, the shift we are undergoing right now has to do with recognizing ourselves as being more than human, remembering that our earthly aspects are a very small part of who we are. In truth, we are multidimensional beings. When we begin to realize this, the life we planned for a limited conception of ourselves no longer fits. We must meet the needs and qualifications not only of our bodies but also of our souls.
This realization dawns slowly for some and with the suddenness of a bolt of lightning for others, and we all must find the way that works for us to integrate this new and larger sense of self into our life plan. Sometimes a drastic change feels totally right, and overnight we might decide to sell our home and move to another country or quit our job and begin a second career. Other times, we allow the changes to proceed slowly, beginning perhaps with allowing ourselves to dream of a new life or just to ask the deeper questions that encourage us to discover our true purpose in life. Either way, know that this process is a natural sign of the growth we are all going through, and trust it to guide you to the life of your dreams.

Hmm, it's late. I'm sitting up awake and surfing the web. Looking for inspiration. Looking for things to reinforce who I am and to support me in what I do. To help me keep going.
