Going to Hari’s and Ram’s schools is akin to visiting a temple. It’s a sacred place for me. I always leave the schools feeling grateful and inspired. Grateful that my children are growing and thriving in a nurturing environment, where they are allowed to be who they are while being encouraged to give their personal best. Inspired because when I am there I feel like I am surrounded by great thinkers.
Today, we had been to parents-teachers’ conference at Hari’s school. We were pleased to get updates on Hari. The teachers told us he is a model student with the right balance between work and play. Following the conference, Hari took me to his classroom and as expected I was clicking away all the quotes and nuggets of wisdom in the classrooms. Here, I am sharing with you one of my favorite finds of the day.
If there were ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing, it is now.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily —
but for something that tugs at your heart
something that’s your dream.
You owe it to yourself
to make your days here count.
Know, though, that things worth doing
seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be days when you want to turn around,
pack it up,
and call it quits.
Those times tell you
that you are pushing yourself,
that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
Because with an idea,
and the right tools,
you can do great things.
Let your instincts,
and your heart
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of wroking hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new
brings the hope of something great.
Anything is possible.
There is only you.
And you will only pass this way once.
Do it right.
