to be or not to be

that is the question.

it is not a matter of what you want to be, it's a matter of whether or not you choose to be it.

I learned a very valuable lesson from a book recently. It's one of those things that kind of change your whole life. It's the type of knowledge that would be almost sinful not to live by. It's like Jim Rohn used to say, "why do we do what we do, when we know what we know?"

It's the BE-DO-HAVE paradigm. How can I continue waiting to be something? I must be now.

What will I be now? I will be what I am. I am a teacher. I am a writer. I am happy.

I must feel as if I am already there, as if I have students, an audience, listeners. I must feel inside as the knowledge inside me is being expressed and recieved by many. I must feel as I am an inspiration to the world.

I have to stop talking in "needs", "wants' and "desires'.... and speak affirmations instead. Speak it into existence, as they say.

I love being me. I love being the "new" me even more.

I choose to BE awesome. So I AM awesome!

Awesome things happen to awesome people.

Being awesome is so much fun :-)

What do you choose to be?

the first step

This is the first step of my journey of a thousand miles.

I have to admit it. I have lost it. Luckily, I found it again, and I'm here and now... in the present.

It's incredible how people say they lose their minds like it's a bad thing. I say when you lose your mind you find your heart. I believe it's what we need to do; lose our minds and find our hearts.

Ok, so maybe not completely lose our minds... just lose the control that it has over us, lose the power that it has over us. It is not us!!

If we would only just realize, that we will never be happy if we believe that we will be happy later... when we have the things that let us do the things we want to do.  We need to be happy now and we will do the things that will allow us to have our hearts' deepest desires.

Knowing this, I have no choice but to just "be". Be everything I desire to be. Happy. Prosperous. Young :)

I am about to embark on a life changing journey. I know not what is coming. I only know that what's real is this, and this is what matters, this is here, and this is now.

I invite you to journey along with me; share stories, experiences, wisdom.

I wish to grow beyond my ego. I wish to use my ego as a puppet.

I am in control. I use my mind creatively and productively.

My mind is a tool. Just like my watch.

It helps with clock time management.

These are the things I call forth. These are not my "wants". These are my affirmations.

My next step is meditation. A moment of silence every morning. No thought.

I must be intentional about it. Religious about it.

I will be the person I want to be, and then I will have the life I want to have.

I read that if you want something, give it away, because the act of giving something away tells your mind that you have it to give away, therefore attracting more of it for you. So since I seek inspiration, I seek to inspire you and anyone else who reads these words.

Come with me. Keep reading. Let's grow together and be who we really are!
