Exploration is Important!

Exploration is Important!

Heather 29/05/2015 0
If there’s one thing I’ve learned recently, it is that life should be about living, not existing. Exploration is a very important part of life. But people seem to spend all day, all month, all year in a routine they’ve created for themselves. Why? Why do humans have a tendency to become so predictable? Sure, they become comfortable and there’s nothing wrong with that. Except that there is. We have been granted this big, beautiful world, not only as our life source but also as our playground. We should not waste this privilege. It was during my first solo trip that I came to this realization. ...

My best friend

My best friend

Elizabeth 18/05/2015 0
I have a special relationship with my best friend, she is more like a sister than a friend. We met in preschool one day by chance. I came in from recess and I found her crying, and it has always been a part of who I am to make sure someone is okay. She told me she missed her mom, and I told her I did too, and I asked her to be my friend and to go play. Over the last two decades, we have shared thousands of laughs, smiles, tears, and hugs. She is my person to go to when things get tough, there is not a single thing I keep from her. Things have not always been easy, or simple, but the love we ha...

The meaning behind me

The meaning behind me

Makahla 18/05/2015 0
Many people hear the words "LIVE LAUGH LOVE" and don't think much of it.  When I think of these three words, I can't help but to think deeper in thought about what they really mean. LIVE: I live each day like it was my last one. I love trying something new, and am not scared to take advice on how to better my life. Living each day for all its worth, has made me an adventurous person with excitement for what life has to offer. This picture is my hometown in Florence, Oregon. I moved away from here a year ago to attend college in Boise. A big leap, but I know it will be worth it! LAUGH: It’s ...

Love is patient, love is kind

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ~~  God, for us...

The meaning of Live Laugh Love®

Prof. Marty 16/05/2015 0
Each of us is given but one pass through life.  No retakes.  No repeats.  Henry David Thoreau was one of American early classic writers.  He penned On Walden Pond in 1854.   He moved out of busy Boston to live on Walden Pond in a small cabin for two years.   He explained  “ I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. “ So, make a covenant - To live well.   Be good to yourself, your family and others.   Be big in behavior, no...

A routine change

A routine change

Growing up in Oregon, I didn’t appreciate the beauty that surrounded me every day. It wasn’t until I changed my routine and moved to a different state that I realized what all Oregon had to offer. You can point in any direction and take off and see rows of luscious green tree’s and beautiful flowers in bloom. Now, when I come back to visit, I love to drive so I can see as much of Oregon as I can. My favorite section of the drive on Highway 84 in Oregon is having the Columbia River to my right, Mt. Hood straight ahead and trees everywhere.  Depending on the season, you will see wind surfers tak...
