Imagine you are walking through knee-deep snow in the woods.
It’s Winter & the snow is still falling.
You are dressed in warm winter clothes; protected from the cold.
To grandmothers house you go. Alone.
You brought your favorite camera with you to take pictures of the gorgeous scenery surrounding you.
The sun is shining. It’s midday.
No one else is around.
You breathe & enjoy this moment.
Do you ever feel stuck?
Like you’re not going anywhere?
This morning when a golf cart sped by me with a friendly wave from the inside I was reminded to keep it moving.
The only place to go from here is forward.
Words are powerful.
I had a wonderful childhood with the best parents a kid can imagine.
Sometimes when my father was fixing something & got hurt he would yell “GOD BLESS IT ALL!!!”
& it was hilarious.
We could hear the pain in his tone but we laughed because our house was filled with love.
It still is.
In reflection I now see the power of those words, “God bless it all,” & am eternally thankful for my parent’s love.
What dreams do you envision?
How do you imagine the ideal world?
Think about an ideal world for you, and then think about an ideal world for everyone.
Really take time to think about this.
It makes a difference.
Is a life of Art; painting, singing, dancing, writing, discovering, creating, exploring, dreaming.
These all fall into the category of Art, but so does teaching, cooking, cleaning, traveling, and working wherever you are – if they are worked upon with focused concentration & intentions of Love.
Anyone can be an artist, but only few are.
Where your mind goes, there you will go too…
“Everything you can imagine is real.”
― Pablo Picasso
How much time do you spend waiting?
Instead of waiting, what do you think could happen if you tried?
Do you even know where you are headed?
Think about a better future. For yourself & for humanity. For this World.
What does it look like?
From here, is where you begin🙏❤️✨
“Amateurs let adversity defeat them. The pro thinks differently. He shows up, he does his work, he keeps on truckin’, no matter what.”
What are you waiting for?
Think & figure out your dream.
Feel your dream.
& take action toward it.
Now is the time to Do The Work.
“For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.”
You’ve stumbled. You’ve fallen. But you won’t let this keep you down. Not again. Not this time.
You’ve been created on this planet with a purpose. Some people find their purpose & live it out, while others contribute to purpose without knowing.
To find and live your true purpose requires a righteous pursuit. On this path you will fall much more than 7 times, but you will continue to rise and be stronger with each comeback.
You can go through your entire life with your eyes “closed”, or you can open your heart, mind, and soul and find the treasure that it waiting for you.
It’s your choice.
Pray about it.
Dream about it.
Love your fate.
& Rise again.
Theodore Roosevelt is given credit for the quote: “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
But that really doesn’t matter.
What’s important is what you do with this information.
Because how much time do you spend comparing your life to others? Or others’ lives against others’?
What’s better than comparison?
Inward reflection & gratitude.
Everything is happening right Now.
Transformation is happening in this Moment.
Now is where everything happens.
For example, reflect on yesterday. Everything you did yesterday was happening in the moment. The same is true for today.
Everything is literally happening right Now.
What are you doing Now?
