“There is something glorious about your heart and soul being in sync about art, love, peace, the passions of your life.” HMLD *~*
I see it around me in the people whom I surround myself with. Living their passions. Sharing their spark(le) of life through smiles, trials, laughter and tears.
Where do you see glory?
“When you are thinking about your day, your love, your garden, your work and THEN realize you’re awake…that’s when you have found your current life’s passion.” HMLD *~*
This has been happening with me lately. A LOT.
Tonight, I was spending time with someone who’s feeling a little burned out. A hard driving serial entrepreneur under the age of 30. He’s gone through being tired before. This time, feels different. He adds much to our business community locally and nationally. To have him lose his passion, drive at this point would affect hundreds of lives, dreams, hopes.
Sometimes it is really hard to get out of that funk.
At the end of our session I asked him if he remembered that euphoric feeling of what it is to be newly in love. He responded, “yes”. I said, “Then turn that in toward yourself. Love yourself with the same relaxed, joy filled, euphoric feeling. You will find the happiness/drive again.” He liked the idea.
We’ll see what happens.
In the mean time, are you so filled with passion for what you do that it’s hard to sleep? Then be sure to write down your goals and work on them a little every day! :p Find mentors. Talk with them often. ADD VALUE to the lives around you. Generate love by being love. The world will give back to you many times over what you put into it.
“If it causes you anxiety, the answer is no. If it brings peace, the answer is yes. If it brings mixed messages, you’re asking the wrong questions.” HMLD *~*
A note I shared with a loved one today.
Does it help?
“When the way seems foggy and the mind wants to choose fear, remember that the light magnified in the fog comes from a source. The closer to the source, the clearer the way. Fear does not have to be your guide” HMLD *~*
There are so many changes going on for everyone, every day, all over the world, in every culture, in every level of awareness. Personally, I am going through transitions that are pulling my ears, my mind, my heart all toward a source of joy…building a business monetizing my skills and talents for putting people together :).
The way is foggy.
I trust the light.
I trust the people, the articles, the guidance that “shows up”
The fog is becoming comfortable, safe, less shadow
Fear being forgotten
My steps more sure
I release that which does not serve
Hold forth my hand toward the source
Embrace the clues that guide me on my way.
“There is kindness when you focus on being kind while allowing kindness to reach you too.” HMLD *~*
What you focus on grows.
When you focus on kindness around you, you will draw it too you.
Be kind to yourself. Be kind to another. Let the math and magic of this grow.
“Words are powerful. Symbols are words verbalized through speech, sign language, music, art, mathematics. What symbols represent you?”
How do you express joy? When you’re deep in the bowels of depression? How do you find the light? What is that light for you?
What is that light for you when you’re “just living life”? How do you define your light?
So many words.
Are they all a part of your light? Some of them? None of them?
There is power in words. Which words define you? Which symbols of any expression of languages?
May love ever be the core.
“There is love in a Teddy Bear’s heart. Pick one up. Hug it. You’ll feel it. Then you can share it.” HMLD *~*
Sometimes, you just gotta love on a teddy bear!
Always there when you need’em
“Give the gift of your heart and it will grow a glow so brilliant, the universe will bless you with all the good you’ve ever desired. Don’t be stingy!” HMLD *~*
It’s Friday. A day for many who find relief that their work week has ended and their relaxation time has begun. For others, it’s one day before church, or their 2nd job kicks in. Whatever Friday may be for you, a beginning or an ending, it is a time for giving.
Gift the gift of heart.
On the radio this morning, 105.1 with Bob here in Raleigh NC, someone called it “Forgiveness Friday”. hmm Maybe for you this is your gift? Maybe your gift is spending time with someone who needs a hug? Or with a stranger asking them their story and learning you’ve more in common than you thought.
Whatever your gift is for the world around you today, give it freely and ask nothing in return. Sometimes, it’s enough for feeling less lonely.
“Pop-it! Is your smile ready to shine? Pop-it out and surprise someone with it. For strangers, the doorman, the maintenance person. Your smile will brighten anyone’s day. Pop-it!” HMLD *~*
How will your smile influence a life?
Tonight, at the Cardinal Club downtown I was there talking with the security person wondering what his dreams were. Turns out, gospel singer. He’s on his way. I was blessed to hear a sampling of his voice. Impromptu, one verse. Our conversation tonight started because in January 2010, I was meeting someone, (turns out to be Perry Williams of the NYGiants NFL team), for a ride to a networking event, (more on this story another day). The security gentleman was friendly, and very helpful with helping myself, and the person I was with, figure out where the limo was.
I saw the same gentleman tonight. Remembered him. Wanted to thank him for his kindness.
Never know how long a smile will be remembered, or how it will influence someone’s future. Smile often.
“Corporate layoff Nov 1. Full steam ahead with intention. Seeking clients. Resources arriving. Seek, focus, it will arrive every time.” HMLD *~*
This past Friday, I was laid off from my corporate position. It happens. I chose to ramp up my intentions, get out and grab opportunities as an entrepreneur.
Diamonds in the dirt
With mentoring, focus, skills, things are happening.
When you seek, or focus on any one topic (or several smaller ones), what you seek will arrive in your life – negative or positive.
Life has a way of knocking you in the dust. When you choose to see how it sparkles in the sun, rather than how it dirties your behind, you’ll find there just might be diamonds beneath your boots.
