A thoughtful quote

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life... Don't be trapped into living with the results of other peoples' thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your own heart and intuition. ~ Steve Jobs
 
 
What a wonderful quote. 
 
It's hard to admit, but I have not been trusting my own instincts enough lately, have allowed myself too often to get trapped by the demands of modern life and business, with shoulds and musts.
 
Isn't it something how one little quote can make you come full stop and re-examine your priorities.
 
Thank you, Steve Jobs, for making me think.

Hi Sharyn,
I love this quote and photo too. Did you take it? Do I have your permission to print it out and hang it up next to my desk? It is just so soothing.

Jane (Colorado Jane!) I would be so happy to have you enjoy it, too. Yes, I took this picture one afternoon in Juneau when I was hiking alone. So pristine and quiet, so peaceful and then right in the middle of the Alaskan woods my cell phone rang as I snapped this photo. Hmmmm. Another funny memory!
