“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
Our lives can be routine. We wake up, eat our favorite meals, go to work, see our friends and family, and repeat it all again. Most of our days, weeks, and months are the same. But I have always been someone that wants to discover and explore new things. That is certainly one of the reasons I love to travel. I like to see what is out there, what else may drive my interests and passions. I also get to gain insight into new cultures and people. It helps me to gain a little more understanding into different people and develop compassion for them as well.
I also like to always infuse my passion and style into whatever I do. It is easy to lose our passion as we go along with everyday routines. But, what would life be without a little passion, compassion, and humor? When I saw this editorial of Fan Bing Bing for Harper’s Bazaar China 30th Anniversary October 2016, I was reminded of both style and passion. It is a good reminder to not just survive, but thrive and live our lives with compassion, grace, and humor. This is an especially important reminder in these tumultuous times and as we remember to give thanks.
Have a lovely week!
