I woke this morning to gray skies and a cool wind. In yesterday’s post I wrote that I would take this weather in stride and shine my own light. However, I have to admit, sometimes that is just plain hard to do – especially in the middle of summer when I yearn for long, warm, sunny days. That being said, I am determined to follow through on my word. I decided a good way to lighten my mood would be to find inspiration, which certainly isn’t hard to do – it’s everywhere! I don’t even have to move off my chair – my computer holds a wealth of inspiring quotes and photos. I also have a notebook right next to my computer that I fill with words that enkindle the flame of inspiration inside.
Everything is created moment to
moment, always new. Like
fireworks, this universe is a
celebration and you are the
spectator contemplating the
eternal Fourth of July of
your absolute splendor.
What do you dream of doing?
What beliefs hold you back from pursuing your dreams?
I choose to say yes to the adventure of this day!
I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wind,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which comes to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which comes to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.
To all of you out there who read my blog, thank you for helping me be true to my word, and myself.
