We have all heard that. What are you busy with? Just asking.... I have people tell me they are TOO BUSY- for what? More joy, more income more time freedom? WHAT exactly are you too busy for? Ask yourself if the YOU you are today would tell your current self- THIS is the LIFE!! And give directions on how to accomplish it!? If NOT- why not? We get one life to live- idling through life instead of action will only lead us to living with regret- for all that could have been- all we could have become and Why- why didn't we do...blank. Seriously- Dr Phil always says we get ONE life to manage- and its ours- We are influences in many others but we weren't put there to manage it. (like your children). Get out of your own way and start LIVING like your were dying. DO ALL THE THINGS! don't hold back . Quit procrastination and jump ALL IN! Allow your only regret to be... I should have jumped HIGHER or FARTHER! #IAMALLIN
You know my devotions this week I was listening to a podcast. The person talked about joy. Radiating joy and how she was with someone sad and down. She decided this gal needed to laugh. So she made a couple funnies and did some other things and she said the other gal laughed and a whole load lifted off her shoulders- it was almost visible. She said she felt pushed in her spirit to reconnect her friend to joy- And there is was- in the silliness- a reason to connect- laugh, have fun -push worry aside and just be present. She went on to talk about being a light in someones darkness. We all have that capability to be a light in someones darkest times. Be joyful- its contagious like the common cold. Spread that stuff like glitter this weekend- Embrace your joy live it- show it on your face spread it around and share your joy! #attractjoy #bealightinsomeonesdarkness
Decide. The push for all things real. Its a decision. It is what propels all things- Action...but you have to decide WHAT to do first. And why... becayse if you have no damn idea why you want to do something you will do nothing! Truly, life is what you make it but its also a compilation of what you do in each little decision of your day. MAKE good decisions!! They stack up and add up! Every step is a step in the right direction when its propelled with action! If you find yourself in a place you didnt expect- its fine adjust and move forward- JUST KEEP MOVING!!!! DECIDE you want something more! Act...Decide to achieve more.
Well, its Monday morning and I am greeted by Mr. Complacency. You know him... had some success, rode a wave then decided not to care if he brought anyone with him on the success journey... just general selfish all about me mentality. Truly a bad person who can really stink up a room, an office or a team really fast. I refuse to join you. I believe all people deserve success and happiness and if you are bored- get away from me. You aren't even living inside your own life. You have become a mere shell- existing- a tumbleweed as I have referenced before... Where is the JOY?! Where is the desire to live life out loud? Where is the desire to be every part of amazing our Creator allows us to be!!!? Its okay hide yourself away- don't contaminate anyone else though. Take your stinky stench or lazy , disinterest and general malaise somewhere else. There is no place for you in my world. I am committed to helping people live a life they deserve and live it with passion and purpose- if that isn't how you choose to live- move on.... Bye Felicia.
I just watched a video about older people banding together and creating the coffins they want to be buried in. Literally, they are crafting them by hand and personalizing them. One was covered in pillows and being used as a day bed currently another as a coffee table- To be used properly when needed. They had a song and everything and it was about how the funeral homes did not appreciate them at first- (well they are out a LOT of money) but how they have come around. Funny to watch these older people singing and dancing about living life and wanting to go out the same way they lived their life... It got me thinking... If I were gone today... what would be said about me? It's thought worthy for sure. and how do I want to go out? I want people laughing at my antics or funny things I did not being sad- I am absolutely sure about that. I thought if I made my own casket it would likely be covered in pictures of my family. Especially, my husband and I and our kids. It's the best thing I have created in this life, I believe and its what I would want to be surrounded in at my demise anyway. Kudos to the woman who put tons of pictures of Elvis, but I think I would like mine to be a bit more personal. I would totally invite people to write on my Box with a sharpie something they remember or made them laugh or smile...so I am going out living colorful and BOLD too...Check out the video...
Just a gal who believes with all her heart she has the power to help others live a life they deserve!
