Slice of Life Day 4: An Inspiring Quote

To the team of Two Writing Teachers: thank you!

One of my sweet friends and mentee posted this quote on Facebook and it caught my attention right away. This reflection by Jac Vanek is at the core of what I believe this life is all about. I just couldn't have captured it the way she did. So I'd like to start my day with this and put it out there as a reminder of how every minute counts in life. Maybe somebody else will feel identified with this.

You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner.

You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single second of every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colors fill your mind until there is nothing left to do but explode. There are no wrong answers. Inspiration is everything. Sit back, relax, and take it all in.
Now, go out and create something.
-Jac Vanek 

P.S I had to google this person because honestly I've never heard of her before. This is what I found out. An entrepreneur in the making.
