The First Step is Rough
~ Great Expectations, Great Disappointments.
No Expectations, No Disappointments.
But how sad and self-limiting to face this destiny….. To expect so little that we can never realize any disappointment in our lives.
I would rather fall flat on my face and weep and cry from the sheer height from which I fell. Feel the pain, moan and groan occasionally, than crawl along, close to the ground, never soaring to any height just to prevent the fall.
My strongest belief is LEAP and the NET will Appear! Take some chances. OK so yes, we may fall and we may fall from great heights, but, it’s just a fall. We can bounce back.
We are resilient! We are strong.
We can choose to be strong, we can choose to TAKE A STAND, TO BELIEVE IN OURSELF, TO BELIEVE IN OUR WORTH, TO INVEST IN SELF ~ even when we momentarily find ourselves flat on our face.
Remember when you were a kid and fell off your bike a thousand times before you could race up the street a million miles an hour? It is the same thing.
Fall down gumby, you will get back up! Go ahead and fall, pick yourself up and eventually you will get it right.
They even have band aids now with great smiley faces, funny characters and everything!
Have a supply on hand, just in case you need them for your “boo boos”~
How else do we really live? Really feel the life energy we each have.
IT IS AWESOME, THIS THING CALLED LIFE! SAY “YES” “YES” “YES”!
We only know the joy of the ride, the freedom of the sky if we have experienced the ride. I am not encouraging reckless abandon all the time.
But I fully support some wild moments and taking some chances.
After all, we have this moment to live life to the fullest.
We do not have to always follow the safe and sure path that is predictable.
Sometimes we should LEAD, Not Follow. Sometimes we should step out there.
Turn on the dazzle, sparkle, just because we can.
Often we find ourselves surrounded by joyless souls. They have the capacity to suck the joy out of life if we let them.
I say: Why would we want to give up our personal power to these bleak, sad, angry souls?
Better that we consider surrounding ourselves with lighter spirits. Be the light others need to see, and create for ourselves our own excitement, our own happy place.
By leading with our own light, we choose our own path. Straight up the hill, UN-winded, sprinting the last hundred yards to the very edge of the cliff, with great expectations, a joyous CELEBRATION!
Leave the grouchy, hateful dark souls at the base of the mountain.
Jump on a cloud, take the ride across the rainbow, and laugh all the way down.
OK so maybe it’s REAL risky to think that a real cloud will provide a soft landing from the top of the mountain, but you get my drift here, right?
Live with GUSTO.
Take some reasonable chances.
Look for MAGIC in your life.
Create a good life. You deserve it.
Laugh, love, sing, dance. And no, not in your mind. Get out there today and CELEBRATE YOU!~
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, know that : the fire is being kept and the embers are burning brightly for each of you with prayers on the winds and healing on the smoke, prayers that you each walk out in YOUR life and step out and live.
Do not depend on others to do it for you.
