My new mantra for life




I’m not a fan of inspirational quotes, and even less fan of sharing them as it sometimes seems like you are just trying to be clever and mindful. But as the exception to my rule,  I’d like to pass on a couple of lines that I heard in a film last Friday.

Sooooo… I finally got around to watching La grande Bellezza in original version and as I said, there was a quote that really got stuck in my mind.

“The most important thing I discovered
 a few days after turning 65
 is that I can’t waste any more time
 doing things I don’t want to do.” – La Grande Bellezza, 2013

No need to say I’m not 65 yet, but I think we can all apply that to our every day lives regardless of our age. Apart from this, it is a film well worth watching, although a bit on the surreal side.

I’m going to break my own rules and ask, has anything you’ve read/heard got stuck in your head lately?
