“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.
“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.
*There is a dance going on across the globe between the awake, and the dead. However YOU celebrate (or not), wishing you love, joy & sweetness throughout the night” HMLD *~*
Happy Eve to you and you and you and you.
Acceptance of other’s and their beliefs on any given day will take you a long way toward godliness.

You are poetry.
Your life is poetry.
Your existence is beautiful.
Please continue your poem.
“When giving love freely, it comes without rejection of a person as they transition through a rough patch in behaviors too.” HMLD *~*
Loving unconditionally is an opportunity to feel out the boundaries of your thinking.
To expand your ideals, your ideas about what it means to accept yourself too.
I’m In Love
I’m in love
It popped into my heart with a clear made decision
Bled like sunbeams across the cold aches in the long forgotten corners of my memories.
Steps forward into life glow with sparkling reflections of joy
Joy from the systematic opportunity to choose happiness
…………in spite of the gray consequences which ripple along the edges of my awareness
Consequences which fade into the mists of might have beens, maybes
The fullness of this love guides me.
Shifts my thought’s arms out wide to encompass, embrace
………………….a world full of private hurts which vomit into the seas of consciousness
………………….as repeated painful transgressions against humanity.
In this bubble of warmth I see not through rose colored glasses,
………………….but a glow which shows me the ugly along with the beauty of a soul
….is only a gift to accept
Accept in spite of
Accept because of
Accept for, instead of against
I’m in love
And I release this love in bubbles from my heart to yours
When your heart is so big it can share
Blow your love bubbles to the next
Not someone, not something
I’m in love with life.
In love with the freedom to choose
To choose the reflections of happiness
Sweet, glowing, golden love.
