This is your LIFE.
I first learned of the Holstee Manifesto when I saw it posted on my friend Scott’s Facebook wall last summer. I immediately fell in love with the words, and promptly printed it out and hung it up on my refrigerator. Holstee is a lifestyle company with the belief that “with genuine positive intentions, anything is possible.” Each and every line just speaks so strongly to me that I wanted to share it with you. I guess you could say that I have a thing for manifestos!
It’s pretty clear that I took the whole “If you don’t like your job, quit” line pretty seriously. Perhaps these words became a source of encouragement to do something that I never thought I would do. The statement about watching less TV turned out to be true as well, but not by choice! Ironically (tragically?), my TV died the night before my last day of work. As much as it would have been nice to spend a couple days in my PJs watching the Real Housewives, I was way more productive without the distraction. “Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences” really encompasses what this blog is all about. And of course I love the line “Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself” – I certainly hope that it proves to be true this time around. As for my passion, well, I suppose I’m still trying to pinpoint precisely what that is, but I believe it lies somewhere in the realm of connecting with others.
Did you find inspiration in this manifesto? What’s your passion?
