Do what you love!

inspiration

I am thrilled it when inspirations come out of the blue. I have a feeling I will get lots of them living in my new place. But, I digress.

The thought I had was this, “Do what you love. Love what you do.”

“How?” you ask.

We all have to do things in life to put food on our tables that we aren’t particularly fond of, such as going to a thankless job. Maybe your boss is a jerk. Or perhaps your  daily commute is grueling. There could be a myriad of negatives about the things we must do to survive.

But…instead of focusing on the negatives, what if we sought out the positives and focused on them instead. So, your boss is a jerk, but the receptionist that greets you each morning is always full of sunshine and smiling. And, yes, the daily commute is grueling, but what about that cool audio book you managed to read in a week just sitting in traffic? Or how about that awesome new song that came on the radio and made you turn up the volume?

Sometimes, it’s the little things. Maybe there aren’t any big positives to what you do that you can grasp, but as a wise man once said, “Littles make bigs.” By finding ways to love what we do, we free ourselves to do things we truly love. Writers find more time to write. Songwriters find time to compose new melodies. Families spend more time playing and less time arguing. It’s the proverbial domino effect.

By focusing on the aspects of life that we do love and less on the parts we don’t, the world instantly becomes a better place in which to live.

So, DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND LOVE WHAT YOU DO!

Hugs, light and love sent to you.

Follow Your Heart

How many times in your life have you been told to follow your heart when trying to make a decision about something? I couldn’t begin to count the number of times this has applied in my own life. Heart on the Water

We have a physical heart that beats inside our chests and helps keep our bodies alive, but we also have a deeper internal “Heart” that serves as our guide.

How? By feelings. Your internal heart will NEVER guide you to do the wrong thing. The trick is getting still enough to listen and tune into the feeling behind a thought.

A good example of this would be the inspiration I had to write this series of books that is now drawing to a close. Did I think I was qualified to tackle this monumental task?

No! But, I listened to my heart, took a leap of faith, educated myself and dove in.

 

And now, I’m crossing the finish line. There is no better feeling than to know you ran the race the best that you could.

Crossing the finish ilne

When things like an award for book excellence comes along, it makes all the hours of effort worthwhile. When a reader leaves a glowing review, or someone sends an email and tells me how much the books have touched them, my internal heart gets really happy.

I am so honored to have received this award from the Texas Association of Authors. It inspires me to continue on into the next project. Excited to see where my heart leads me!

In the meantime, the fourth and final book of this series will soon be available for pre-order.

The Magic Bank Account

Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use.  However, this prize has rules:

The set of rules:

  1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day wouldbe taken away from you.
  2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
  3. You may only spend  it.
  4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account withanother $86,400 for that day.
  5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time itcan say, “Game Over!” It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for.

Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew  it would be replenished in the morning, right?

ACTUALLY, This GAME is REAL…

Shocked ???

YES!

Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can’t seem to see it.

The PRIZE is *TIME*

  1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.
  1. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.
  1. What we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.
  1. Yesterday is forever gone.
  1. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolveyour account at any time WITHOUT WARNING…

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.

Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start “spending”….
