Be Courageous – Love This Life with David Culiner

My good friend David Culiner is a true spirit of Courage, who follows no one but himself. A true Authentic. David owns and runs “Love This Life.” Do yourself a favor – visit his website for a taste of his hypnotic music and check out the clothing line. I can say that all the favorite t-shirts my husband Cody and I wear, (sweat shop free) are from Love This Life. David has quite a following – Angelina Jolie, Hallie Berry, Bruce Willis, Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock, Willie Nelson and Sting, just to name a few. Many of David’s clothing designs include the Love This Life Manifesto. People stop me over the years and ask about it, read it, and want to know where to buy Love This Life items. Now it is time for The Manifesto:


is about celebrating the moment

and that we’re not guaranteed or owed another day

and how cool it is that what we hide

can actually be the fuel towards our glory

and that it’s not so bad being proven wrong


is about welcoming the blind turn

and the possibility that

there’s no such thing as coincidence

and that empathy is incredibly sexy

and that it’s never too late to

pick up a quitar or a paintbrush

or to make an amend or to make a new friend


could be about rekindling a past flame

or igniting a new one

or shape shifting from a dreamer into a doer

or savoring the caress of a love long gone


means whatever it is

you want it to mean because


is a celebration of you and your path


‘cuz it could go at any second

you rock

I end with a powerful question David asks that requires courage to answer:

How are you spending your irretrievable nonrefundable allotment of immeasurable time?
