Live like it's all borrowed time.



















In our competitive world, it's easy to feel as if we have to compare,

and compete with each other, our siblings, the neighbors,

or colleagues on a daily basis.

Yet because we are different from one another we must be cognizant

of never undermining our own self worth.


Why would you want to set your personal goals by what other people deem important?

Who knows us better than we know ourselves?

Who else knows what is best for us?

Still, don't be afraid to take calculated risks.

It is only by taking chances that we learn more about ourselves.

We learn how to be more confident.

One thing for sure; do not live in the past memories of any previous failure,

and take all opportunities to pave a new and better future.

My Viejita always reminded us that she was leaving on borrowed time.

Funny she reminded us for the past 25 years before it came time to pay

up late one cool Fall evening.

Her passion for life, and how she live her life one day at a time philosophy,

inspired her entire family to really "live" every moment of every days of our lives.

So keep doing and giving.

Do not give up while you still have so much more to give.


As they say, it's not a race, it's a marathon.

Make it a great dia!
