Today I broke out an old friend: my tried and true yellow notepad and a pen. Thoughts kept swirling through my mind; slowly, dully – then quickly and vividly. I kept looking for a muse for my source of Inspiration. Then I Re-Membered that I Am an extension of that Source. I needed look no further. Never without; I searched Within and found the Voice of my own Truth.
This is what I know: I came here to express myself – in every way, shape, fashion and form.
Iʼll break out dancing in the middle of a Wal-mart, if my favorite song is playing. I Love to write poetry and short stories. I Love my computer. I Love Creating works for my clients that exceed their expectations. I Love acting, because I get to stretch my Perception of Self beyond its limits.
I Love to model; I Love Being sexy. I Love deep, meaningful conversation. I Love letting my voice be heard. Canʼt sing though. I wish I could. I Love Being an Inspiration to others, and I Love witnessing others experience their own “aha!” moments. I Love dancing. Magic always happens under the Disco Ball. I Love Being sensual and sexual. I Love taking advantage of all of my senses, in order to enjoy all of the Pleasures of Life. Sometimes I wanna go Vegan.
Sometimes I want to sink my teeth into a NY Strip. I just Love a great meal. Sometimes I want to detox and fast. Sometimes I want to drink all night. Iʼm okay with that, too. Some days I want to fit in. Some days I want to stand out. Some days I just want to be left the hell alone.
But no matter how I choose to show up, I want to be me. The Real Me.
The Me who has a head full of dreams and a genuine passion for life. The Me who can be afraid of the unknown; yet excited by itʼs newness at the same time. The Me that can relate to people better by hugs than handshakes; by smiles rather than empty gestures. The Me who Loves snow cones and rainbows and fireworks and flowers and balloons and lazy days – just because.
I wonʼt say Iʼll look for any excuse to celebrate life. But I find it inexcusable for me not to
look for such opportunities in each and every day of my life. My obituary will not read,
“Coulda, woulda, shoulda…”
My life is filled with ups and downs, but not with failures. Everything I have experienced has contributed towards making me the person that I Am – in this moment. And I certainly – am not – a failure. I may have lost much, but I understand that it is all part of my Process: LETTING GO of the old in order to make room for the new. I Am on my Journey to Joy, and I Am following my Bliss!
The Path I am on now is different.
Sometimes scary. Sometimes painful. But I move out on Faith and the Knowing that Prosperity is my Birthright. I do not have to justify my existence in order to allow greatness to flow throughout my life. The mere fact that I Am here means that I can be, do, or have anything I desire. Every day people fight and die for what they believe in.
I believe in Me.
Those who know me know that I am a Force of Nature and sometimes not easy to deal with. Those who Love me know that if there is one thing I do very well, it is to Love. I Love my family. I Love my friends. I Love music. I Love art. I Love inanimate objects. I Love for the sheer Joy and exhilaration of the Expression of Love itself. At first it wasnʼt easy for me, but then I discovered the very Essence of who I Am. Trust me – after a while youʼll get the hang of it! Try it – youʼll like it!
The best part of all of this is that at any moment, all of this could change. As I evolve, so does my Truth.
This is what I know.
Aw, this was a truly high quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and actual effort to create a fantastic article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never appear to obtain some thing carried out.
I believe I can fly, and you can too – if you’d like to. Letting go of procrastination seems to be a common challenge for many. So you are not alone. How do you plan? Do you put off your plans? What helps me is to understand a couple of things.
First, what is the reason I am wanting to do something.
Two, what is it that I really want.
Three, I attach my to do list to the first two items above.
Four, I take massive action toward the items on my list.
Hope this helps. Let me know if it is helpful.
I Love your comments, Darren. And thank you, Tough Phones, for your feedback.
There is another reason that comes to mind when we have the tendency to procrastinate. That reason is sometimes we feel we are not worthy of the greatness of our dreams. And this could not be further from the truth. If you have the ability to dream, you also have the ability to make them come true.
I heard a story once in which a man wanted to be a writer, but felt he didn’t have enough “credentials” to make it a successful endeavor. He confided his discouragement in his friend, who told him, “Do you know what writers do? They write. That is how they become writers.”
Just write. Write from your heart and don’t worry about your audience for the time being. Get it out and on paper. You can worry about the technicalities later. Don’t deprive the world of your Light! Shine on! 🙂
MY MY… I think you know ME!
Wow! this is not a shock or a surprise . This is MY GRANDDAUGHTER . I know her very well. she is all that she says she is. At my age 74 yrs.and 9mo,s . I wish that I had half of her knowledge. Or just a bit of it. I,m so proud and blessed to have her as a granddaughter.
Awe! Josephine, that is so sweet of you to say about your granddaughter. And I totally agree with you about her wisdom. Thia is why I want to share her wisdom with as many people as possible. Because her experiences, along with her wisdom, are great lessons for others, including me (smile).
