This evening I was stealing a few moments for myself and reading bits of an important/influential book for me by one of the most beautiful and poetic writers of our lifetime, Haruki Murakami. I just thought I'd share a small passage that always makes me stop and think.
"But who can say what's best? That's why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much. My experience tells me that we get no more than two or three such chances in a life time, and if we let them go, we regret it for the rest of our lives."
