The Main Thing Is…

What is the main thing? According to Auguste Rodin, “The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live. Be a man before being an artist.” The main thing in life is to grow, not to stagnate. If you are not growing yourself, then you are stagnating. Do not get stuck in a rut. If you are not happy with what you are doing, then it is not the main thing for you. If you are stuck in a rut, then it is not the main thing for you. Do not be afraid to pursue the main thing, the thing that makes you happy, the thing that brings love, hope, and peace into your life. Yes, the world wants you to be different. Do not follow people, follow yourself. But that does not mean you shouldn’t listen to people. Listen to people, but follow your heart, your soul. Be brave. Do not give in to fear. And do not forget to follow the main thing- love!

Have You Done Your Work?

“Don’t forget to do your work.”

Have you done your work? Do not forget to finish what you are working on. Time flies. Do not waste your time on useless things. Do not listen to people who are not getting anything done. Listen to yourself, to your soul. Whatever you are working on right now, finish it. Ovid said, “Now I have done my work. It will endure, I trust, … fire and sword, Beyond Time’s hunger.” No matter how tough, do not give up on what is in front of you.

“Now I have done my work.”- Ovid
