Hello. Did you stop by for a creative boost? A quick pick-me-up in the middle of a tough day. Do you need an inspirational story, a clever thought, a reminder that you are a magnificent, remarkable, and capable person? Why?
Go look in the mirror. Go...right now.
(I'll wait here.)
What did you see in the mirror? A creature as magical as a baby panda, a bunch of tulips in full bloom, a miraculous sunrise? If you didn't see that, look again.
What would you really like to do today? What pet project would you like to start, finish, or just get a little time to work on? Would a few minutes, or an hour spent going after one of your dreams be a much needed relief and, more importantly, a boon to your spirit that just might spill over into all of your life and all the lives you touch today? So, boon!
You know what you want to do. And you know that focussing for even a few minutes on that dream, today, will ripple into everything else you do. I culled through some old boxes of stuff today--threw most of it out--and made more room in my studio to go after some of my dreams. Throwing two big boxes (and one not-so-big box) into the dumpster was like pushing the big "CAN'T" monster off my chest. The sky cleared...well it was pretty clear all day, but it sure seemed clearer with all that "can't" in the dumpster.
Kill your "can't" - - as in, can't work on that now, can't spend time on dreaming today, can't waist time not doing real work...I CAN'T believe you still listen to that cra---bby voice in your head. I thought we got rid of her in fifth grade. She got an "F" in helping and we kicked her out of the Dream-A-Day Club forever! What you're hearing is an echo. open a door in your mind and let it out - - forever!
What you're looking for is an excuse to go after your dream, your best self. You are most delightful, most powerful, when you are doing what you love. Be delightful, as a boon to those around you. Even if they don't know, they will sense your enjoyment and maybe the little giggle they get will drowned out the crabby CAN'T voice in their head.
