I found out yesterday that my dentist passed away the day after Christmas. We had become good friends over the years and it really hit me, because I had been in his office just a few days before he passed away. He was just a few years older than me, and we would often talk about all of the things we would do when we retired. Now he will not do any of those things.
So here are a few things that I have been thinking about, since hearing this news.
Life is short. Do what you love to do.
If you don’t like something in your life, then change it. You are the only one who can.
If you are looking for your soul mate, then become the person your soul mate is looking for.
Open your mind, it is the only way to learn something new. Open your heart and let down the drawbridge that is keeping everyone else out. Open your arms and hug someone like you mean it.
Travel some place new every year. Take out that bucket list that you are saving for when you retire. Go out and do those things now.
Dance in the rain, splash in the puddles. Release the wild abandon of your inner child.
Live your dreams, Create wondrous events in your life. Succumb to the life you really want, but are afraid to have.
Eat chocolate. Drink wine. Laugh often. Be proud of the wrinkles on your face, because they show what a wonderful life you are living.
Don’t wait until your are old to wear purple, big hats, and foolish grins.
“There’s no need to wait for the bad things to be over. Change now. Love now. Live now. Don’t wait for people to give you permission to live, because they won’t.” – Kris Carr
Many times in our lives we arrive at the proverbial fork in the road. We may have been traveling on the road of confusion. We are unsure of why the things in our lives are turning out the way they are. We may have experienced a loss of income; loss of a spouse through divorce; loss of a child or parent from death; so many things can have happened which put us in unfamiliar territory.
Change now, love now, live now – this means establishing a life with new meanings and new beginnings. To become aware of our own potential and develop it. We can use NLP, hypnosis, life coaching tools and techniques and reprogram our subconscious mind. There are so many tools available to us today. We all have talents and skills that we can hone in on and develop.
Develop an awareness of your potential. Give yourself permission to live the life you always dreamed of. There are no limits to who you can be. If you are still here, it is not too late to be the person you were born to be. Take the road that has your name on it, and discover just how great you really are. We need “you” (the you that you were born to be), to make this world a better place, please come soon!
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” – Oscar Wilde
How many people do you know that go to work, come home eat, watch TV. and go to bed and repeat this day after day. Is that life or just existence? No involvement outside of work; they don’t read a book to expand their thinking; they might go to dinner and a movie, but if you listened to the conversation it is about work, or a TV. show – not about improving something in the world. It isgenerally complaining about their life or work or something. They don’t know where the homeless shelter in town is or even if there is one. If they know where the food bank is, it is because they use it.
I have been guilty of some of the above. I think that we all have. But at some time we woke up to the fact that we can “live” life to its fullest. That there can be more than just existing. And once you wake up you can’t go back to sleep. You might find yourself dozing off once in awhile, but you can’t go back to sleep.
So what do you do when your awake? You find something that speaks to your soul. something that you can do now, to make this a better world. I found (or it found me!) Community Takeover. It is always in my mind now. I see every ad in a magazine or on TV and I think, could I use this concept in the program? Everywhere I turn another idea is popping into my head and I am thinking about how I could incorporate this into the programs message.
I know that this program will be life changing, because it has already changed mine. I know that it will not only change individuals, but families. And not only families, but communities, and from there it will spread out all over the world. Just like how each of us woke up, once the individual realizes that they can join with others in their communities and make a difference, they won’t be able to go back to sleep.
Community Takeover is going to wake up individuals to the difference they can make, and we will wake up the world!
