Accomplish Something Today

"The purpose of life is to live it. To taste experience to the utmost - to reach out eagerly, and without fear for newer and richer experience."
Eleanor Roosevelt
What did you accomplish yesterday? Did you get up, stretch, shower, eat breakfast, go to work, come home, zone out in front of the television, and then go to bed? How many things did you do during the day that you went at with intention, with purpose, with a goal? And how many things just "happened" as the day went on, because they were supposed to?
If that's how your day went - stop. Stop letting life "happen".
I want you to think about the rest of today, and I want you to make things happen. Do everything with intent, with focus - and relish the experience. When we stop ourselves from wandering through life, even the most mundane tasks take on a unique glow - the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
That's my challenge to you - don't just "exist".
