Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.

Your own magic

There are no magic pills that can instantly solve your problems. Life is yours to be lived through, not to be skipped over.

The difficulties add just as much richness to your experience as the delights. The sadness serves to make the joy that much more magnificent.

The challenges are what give the accomplishments real value. The setbacks are what make the rewards so sweet.

The tedium and the excitement, the problems and the pleasures, the satisfaction and the disappointment all merge together into the vibrant and fulfilling symphony that is life. You would not want to miss a single minute of it all.

There is indeed a miracle here, but it’s not in a magic pill. It’s in the fact that you’re alive and aware and able to successfully move through life’s ups and downs.

The difficulties do not continue forever, yet the value of making it through them will always be yours. Instead of wishing for a magic pill, dive into the experience of creating your own special magic by the way you live your life.
