Usually we walk around constantly believing ourselves. “I’m okay” we say. “I’m alright”. But sometimes the truth arrives on you and you can’t get it off. That’s when you realize that sometimes it isn’t even an answer—it’s a question. Even now, I wonder how much of my life is convinced.
-- Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

If I am certain about anything


it’s that you will be so much happier and productive and joyful if you surround yourself with people who treat the world like their oyster, people who say Yes, people who see a problem as a challenge to be solved and not a detriment to progress. I became a much better person when I stopped spending energy on the apathetic, indifferent, the shallow, and instead inserted myself into situations with people who cherish the joy of life.
