“When there’s that forgiveness present and compassion, it just helps you live so much easier.” -Craig T. Nelson
“To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don’t wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now.” -Alan Cohen
“I truly believe that we can overcome any hurdle that lies before us and create the life we want to live. I have seen it happen time and time again.” -Gillian Anderson
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” -Oprah Winfrey
If we truly wish to make the most out of our short lived time, we must follow through with the burning passion we find within ourselves. To do otherwise is to deprive ourselves of enjoyment, fulfillment, and excitement.

This week’s Snapshot Challenge photo was taken in La Boquilla in Cartagena, Colombia. The lower class individuals in the city live in this area, and the boats you see below are handmade from some of the local residents. Offering canoe rides to tourists is a main source of income to the locals in La Boquilla, so some individuals make the boats, others row the boats, and a few are in charge of working with tour groups to bring in tourists. Seeing so many people from the community come together to raise funds for their neighborhood is truly a beautiful sight, which is why I chose this particular picture for this week’s Snapshot Challenge.
