“I love you no matter what you do, but do you have to do so much of it?” — Jean Illsley Clarke
Somewhere between the evening news and getting caught up with the DVR’d shows I’ve not been watching last night it hit me that I’ve taken a huge step backwards in the love and life categories. It’s probably why I’ve been so blue lately, I’ve been barely breathing. Today, on the first day of this weekend I am recommitting to live my love, live my passion, rekindle my curiosity and dedicating these days to living my dreams. Sure we can all say that, but at some point for it to be true we have to show intent, not just words. Are you with me? In this moment, live your values. With each person you meet, live your compassion, your respect, your authenticity. Be real, that’s a hard one isn’t it? We put up these persona’s because we fear the real us is sadly lacking. Come with, let’s put aside just thinking about or wishing for those things that are most meaningful for us. Let’s put aside those thoughts, grab the brass ring and live our dreams in every action.
It’s our time to spend our time really, truly enjoying whatever we enjoy. Let’s push past the mere appearance of richness and fulfillment, and actually get down to living our richness, live whatever it is that will lead to fulfillment. Stop doing things just to say you’ve done them. Do whatever you do because there is something deep inside that implores you to do it. Because think about it, instead of crying over past mistakes, or looking forward to what’s coming in the future, life is ours to live right now. It’s time, surely right this moment it is the time to be true, be you, I’ll be me, and we can be filled with the unique joy that is ours to experience. Lord knows I’ve tried to rush through enough things in my life. I hope you have a purposeful well lived in weekend! As for me, right now I am going to go enjoy the good life we call work.. *sigh*
