to create. . .
express. . .
and inspire. . .
when i was a little girl my mother told me
that the people in the hospital where she delivered,
would always be around me,
pinching me to tears and saying i would live
a colorful life.
now, that was an understatement!
and Ma didn’t know any better.
and i think i decided to do just that.
restless spirit as I AM,
i always have my hands on something creative.
i love life.
i love the creative process.
i love to play.
i used to think that we were born to work hard
and should feel lucky when something good happened.
thanks to my commitment to growth
and mindful living,
i found out that we do create our own reality. . .
sure, we can "catch" a common belief
and live to prove that it is true.
but we also can decide differently.
we all make up rules about our own lives
and how they work.
this is what i choose to believe and live by.
not so many years ago i came to a realization of the importance of listening.
i found this to be one of the most simple
yet profound ways to conscious living.
how this made me the perfect listener to life stories
is simply amazing:
laughter mingles with tears in the process.
so. . .
i celebrate my birthday.
i am 47!
and there is a lot i am looking forward to!
how do i want to live?
what is in my heart?
any dreams still on my to-do list? there are plenty!.
i hope to live another 100 years
to taste everything i want to taste
and express the richness of my soul.
my experience is that if there is a dream in my heart
i should ( and i really mean it) go for it!
it brings me alive!
the dream itself carries a guaranty for success.
i am never too old for any unexpressed desires.
if i am really too old ( i can't believe i wrote this),
the dream will leave me.
i know this intuitively.
i believe nothing is impossible.
everything is possible!
and all suppressed dreams create just an energy leak.
if i find myself a bit down, or with no energy. . .
i ask myself what i still want that i believe i cannot have/be?
i honor the spirit in me.
i support my dreams.
and i never compromise on my heart's desires
and i stay outrageously ALIVE!
and today, as every day,
i reinforce what i already believe:
the world is my playground
and my life is a whole long vacation.
