Time is valueable! We can tell what takes precedence in our lives by how much time we spend.


If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough. —Meister Eckhart [Johannes Eckhart]

The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, and don't settle.

When life gets you down, do you wanna know what you've gotta do? Just keep swimming! —Dory, Finding Nemo
