“Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music-the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls, and interesting people. Forget yourself.”
Our story unfolds as we wake up and take hold of the script as it is channeled through us on a daily basis. We become the author and willing recipient of a life mixed with reality and hopefully a lot of creative fascination. The tools for inspiration are many. We can stand captive to their overwhelming presence or we can capture all that is interesting with arms wide open. We have this one opportunity to become who we are meant to be, to learn what we are meant to learn, and to share all that we are meant to share. Will we allow fear to take hold and keep us firmly rooted in what we know, never traveling farther than our comfort zone will allow? Or better, will we dare to break out of our shell and gather the courage to take risks betting on the chance that the pay off will be beyond what our dreams can imagine? Look around my friends, there is so much richness in this world to seize, don’t be distracted by those things that are meant to deter us from our own greatness. There are all things holy and beautiful about this life experience. Breath deeply and take it all in with love and laughter. Let its essence touch our spirit and penetrate our very being. Most of all, each day, embrace our stories as they unfold and revel in the beauty that each of us will discover. Most importantly, stay interested my friends, then we can lose ourselves in the magic of it all!
