Below my dear friends is the Holstee Manifesto. It was a mission-vision statement formed by three friends who founded Holstee in the summer of 2009. They had just quit their jobs and were faced with the possibility of being able to do whatever they wanted.
This manifesto resonated around the world. To date, it has been viewed over 60 million times and shared by even more people. The message is simple, honest and is brimming with an overwhelming sense of positivity. It beautifully states what we all yearn for — to be able to live a simple but meaningful life; to start doing what one wants to do and to live out one’s passion(s).
This manifesto was the first thing I remembered when I learned about Smart’s Live More campaign. The ad below ends with this statement “because your time is your life, and the less of it you waste, the more of it you live”. SMART wants us to stop wasting our time over things that don’t enrich our lives and which prevents us from connecting with the people who matter most. Smart’s campaign is an advocate of making the time that you have right now with the people you love even more meaningful – to Live More!!
I’ve posted a couple of months ago how torn I am with my day job. Whenever I read the Holstee manifesto or when a campaign such as Smart’s Live More comes along, it makes me wonder even more if where I am is where I should be.
For now, all I have is this little blog. My passion for writing and sharing my (mis)adventures is encapsulated here. My love for my family and for my little boy DW is entrenched within these pages. At the very least I am living a part of my life out here and with all of you (and thank you for letting me!)
I wish you all the ability to Live More. For all of us I wish we are able to live out the Holstee manifesto for ourselves 🙂
