do what you love, and do it often.

Remember a few months back when everyone was posting that inspirational video, the one with people biking around while great words and phrases moved across the screen? Well, I sort of really loved it—Radley, too—so we ended up buying a print of the Holstee Manifesto and hanging it beside our lovely color-coded bookshelf... (It's quickly becoming my favorite corner of our apartment.)

P.S. The song in the video is "Almost Everything" by Wakey!Wakey! So great, right?

I bought 3 of these this year & gave them as Christmas gifts! LOVE Holstee! And if I must say so myself, completes your beautiful, little corner!

I still watch this video when I need an attitude adjustment. Maybe the poster is necessary! My favorite line :

"start doing things you love. stop over analyzing. Life is simple"

... over analyzing? me? never.

I've had this up on my wall behind my desk for about a year now :) I think I get something different out of it everytime I look at it.
