Begin What You Want To Do NOW.
Beginning of February already!
I am always drawn to inspirational quotes about doing what you want to do, feel what you are meant to do, or to go for what you are dreaming to do.
“The secret to living the life of your dreams is to start living
your dreams today, in every little way you possibly can.” - Mike Dooley
Yes! Mike Dooley is right, and darn it! I want to share this with other women!
…and Francis Bacon, I have loved you for this one;
“Begin doing what you want to do now. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand- and melting like a snowflake.”
I am holding the snowflake in my hand, and I will notice the stark, biting cold of it. I will be mindful of how quickly it melts, but first I notice the crystal-like symmetrical arms, with their impossible delicacies. I will share the beauty of it with others, and I will begin now. Thank you Mr. Bacon.
I have always believed that bringing a group of women come together for a shared interest, is a gift; an opportunity! There is so much we can do for each other! Every single person has an ember to add to the fire that is life.
Here is one of my favorite poems, written by Mark Nepo.
At The Window
I was at the window
when a fly near the latch
was on its back spinning--
legs furious, going nowhere.
I thought to swat it
but something in its struggle
was too much my own.
It kept spinning and began to tire.
Without moving closer, I exhaled
steadily, my breath a sudden wind
and the fly found its legs,
rubbed its face
and flew away.
I continued to stare at the latch
hoping that someday, the breath
of something incomprehensible
would right me and
enable me to fly.
Is there someone in YOUR life who was there to right YOU …and enable you to fly?
Happy Valentine’s Day, you beautiful, kind, exceptional human being!
