Hast Du in letzter Zeit darüber nachgedacht, was Du in Deinem Leben willst ? 

In der nächsten Woche?
Im nächsten Jahr?
In den nächsten 10 Jahren?
Bevor Du stirbst?

Wenn Du noch einen, zehn, hundert, tausend Tage zu leben hättest?

Was würdest du tun? Geniessen, klären, planen...?
Mit wem würdest Du Deine Zeit verbringen?
Was möchtest Du noch sehen? Erleben? Erfahren?
Mit wem möchtest Du ein klärendes Gespräch führen, Dich bedanken, Dich entschuldigen?
Was und wem könntest/wolltest Du Deine Lebenserfahrung weitergeben?
Und was würdest Du auf keinen Fall tun? Mit wem oder womit würdest Du definitiv keine Zeit verschwenden wollen?

Gibt es etwas davon, 
dass Du in Deinem jetzigen Leben umsetzen kannst/ möchtest?

One day I decided to quit... I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality... I wanted to quit my life.
I went to the woods to have one last talk with God. (you may call it nature, the spirit, myself or ...whatever suits you)

"God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?" His answer surprised me...

"Look around", He said.. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?" "Yes", I replied.

When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed.

But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.
And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. He said.

"In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit. In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. "I would not quit.." He said. "Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.

Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant... But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.

It had spent the five years growing roots.

Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive. I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle."

He said to me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots."

"I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. " Don't compare yourself to others .." He said. " The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern ... Yet, they both make the forest beautiful."

Your time will come, " God said to me. " You will rise high! " How high should I rise?" I asked.

How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return. "As high as it can? " I questioned.

Good days give you happiness
Bad days give you experiences;
Both are essential to life.
