This is it

Hello everyone. This is it. I have made a command decision to continue and write. I have with all my heart wanted to bring out to everyone a book that really inspires and creates a way for you to think about what it is that you want in your life.

Well we all know that inspiration comes from many places. Well for the last few days. I knew that I need to get busy and start writing the book that I had meant to put out for the last year. Well today is the day I decided to put it out there to many people so that they would be able to help me with my goal and journey.

I want you to look inside of yourself and ask yourself what is it that you have been waiting to start in your life. What is it that is on the top of the list in your life that you need to accomplish. There are no guarantees in life that is for sure. We act most of us like we have more time than we really have.

I know what it means to live for today and plan for tomorrow. The issue here is that tomorrow never really comes we live in the present there is no tomorrow. The now is the only thing that we actually have on a day by day basis.

Most of us are waiting for the subway of our lives to stop on the platform in our minds to take us to the journey we are waiting for. I for one know that life stops for no one. Just look around. Everytime you pass someone on the street or see them in the store. You have not seen them before and you may never see them again. It is not that they do not exist but they have no meaning in your life except that they are in the same place as you.

Have you ever taken the time to wonder what another person is going through. Most of us have assumptions of what others are going through. You see a person who is cutting the lawn and with a lawn service. What are you really thinking? Do you realize that they have a life similar to yours? Do you see the doctor in the emergency room. Do you think that they may also be going through a crisis in their own personal lives? We have a great tendency to look at people and what I call "mind read." Except this type of mind reading is usually a projection of what we really believe deep down inside.

We have to open our minds to be able to be more creative with our thinking and how we see the world. Right now on the television and on the radio there is a lot of chatter about what is wrong with everything. What is wrong with everything? Do we not realize it is what we give power to is what shapes our world. What we believe strong enough becomes a truth for all of us. I travel quite a bit and in each country people have strong beliefs. That is why we laugh at different countries or people. We think their belief is very strange. Have you ever considered that what we believe to other nations is very strange as well.

What I am getting to right now is that the only world you can change is your own. We live basically very insulated in our minds. We share our beliefs with friends, families, cultures, religions, politics,,etc.... We are either labeled as women, men, husbands, wives, lovers, loners, workers etc... we are individuals who make up the whole of humanity.

Take the time to think for yourself. I have been taking time to just take time for me. Not tons of time but some time none the less. Be yourself. Think for yourself. Know yourself. When you get to know you . Then you will laugh . You will see how funny you actually are and be kind to yourself. You are the only you that you will ever really know. So when you see that person in the store or mowing the lawn know that as a fellow traveller on this earth they may be going through the same life you are just thinking about life on different terms.

Lighten up, Enjoy , and learn to do cartwheels like when you were a little kid...Denise
