I love the simplicity in Jobs' words. For a man that has revolutionized our daily lives, his message to people remains so basic. Trusting one's gut and living in the moment have got to be two of the greatest challenges I face as a late twenty-something. I know my friends of the same age feel similarly as the life phase we are going through now is so unique and fueled by careers, relationships, and the cities we call home. We start to root ourselves in a place, but dont want to latch on too tight. Early this morning(7am latte, I love you), I had coffee with a friend who is just coming back to NYC after a stint away in another town. Our discussion revolved around really coming into our own as of late and settling into what we know to be so whole and true for us as individuals: to build a lasting career where growth and talent is acknowleged....to honor my first year of marriage with as much passion and strength as I know how-setting the tone for years to come...to find out who your true friends are....and who accepts you for your individual life choices. Recently I've been finding myself saying and thinking, "well, we've all only got one life to live!"...and I today, I know as soundly as ever that my "dot" on this spot in my life is as right as ever, and on the wiggly, alinear path.
