how very different our ideals of beauty would be.
To me, you all look lovely and you shine like the brightest stars in the sky! So please, smile at those around you today. Fill up the world with your peaceful beauty and good hearts! And, as always…
Act. Dream. Plan. Believe. These are the 4 words that are my mantra at the moment. Please say them with me. We act, we dream, we plan and we believe. Together we accomplish great things. Whatever your goal, know that I believe in you.
I love this quote. I need to stamp it on my forehead. I want to shout it from the rooftops. I want to make it a battle cry. Imagine for a moment what you could accomplish if you simply stood up and walked out of your history! Gone would be all the excuses as to why you acted that way, why you thought a certain way, why habits that are so deeply embedded in your psyche are still ingrained thinking that you can’t seem to disassociate from anymore. Poof! Abolished, erased and the shackles which held you back would be broken.
And you could begin again. You could create whatever you truly wish in your life.
You could do, plan and be without fear, failure or anxiety.
So what’s stopping you? What’s the battle cry in your head that makes your life small?
Let it go! Drop it by the wayside and take baby steps forward!
You are not your history. You are your PRESENT!
A distant family member passed yesterday, and then a friend texted me the song below and it made me think of the indelible mark we leave on this Earth when it’s our time to depart. In most hearts, we want there to be something that says to ourselves and to others, some reaffirmation of “I was here,” so that we can fulfill that need to matter, to be a part of something unique in this world. To add our brand of something special to the millions of others with whom we connect in our short lives. Do you feel that need? Can you feel it? Do you ever think about it?
So what is your mark that you’ll leave behind? Is it what you think it should/could/would be? It’s never too late to change what that ‘dash’ represents in your lifetime. Do you feel that energy today? I awoke with something completely different as my post for today, but this just feels right. As DAngel goes on to her Heaven, we can be reminded of a life well-lived, a family who surely is in mourning over the loss of a soul who tried to fight the cancer that led to her death yet continually kept that bright positivity even when there was nothing left.
You have the power to renew your spirit today and to be able to make a difference, no matter how small in your own life and in the lives of others. To say, I lived. I loved. I was here.
P.S. HAngel, thanks for leading the way with this song today. I am heartily grateful for your presence in my life. ♥ Watch the video below ~ and be inspired by Lady Antebellum.
Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear.
Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps
different action or adjustments will have to follow.
But any action is better than no action at all.”
– Norman Vincent Peale
So if you’re finding yourself a bit unmotivated for whatever goal you have in mind, then join me. Let’s get a little action going in our lives! Let’s do one thing today to start us on our journey to reach our goal! Just one thing…or two…or three if the feeling continues! I have found that once I begin, sometimes I find it easier to continue, but it’s that STARTING that I stumble on.
‘I want you to succeed’ is what a friend recently told me…so in honor of SAngel, let’s begin! Roll out the red carpet and let’s take baby steps towards our goals!
Today, we want ACTION!
Share with me…what’s your goal? What’s your first step that you’re doing today?
Take my hand, together we can do anything!
Come on, I’m your biggest fan!
