you may not think that the world needs you, but it does

“You may not think that the world needs you,

but it does.

For you are unique,

like no one that has ever been before

or will come after.

No one can speak with your voice, say your piece,

smile your smile, or shine your light.

No one can take your place,

for it is yours alone to fill.

If you are not there to shine your light,

who knows how many travelers will lose

their way as they try to pass by

your empty place in the darkness?

-unknown

(above quote found in Secrets to Lifelong Prosperity by Heidi Baer)

***

You are light.  You are love.  You are magic.  Now.

You have already begun.

it’s not about midlife crisis…

(Jeff on the television show “Survivor-Second Chance Cambodia”)

I loved Jeff’s (a participant on the tv show Survivor) quote on Survivor this week after he related that he’d be turning 50 next year –he stated, “…it’s not about a midlife crisis; it’s about a midlife quest.”  A quest–awesome!  (and then right after that he exclaimed “something just bit my ass!”)  I guess some quests start off a little rockier than others…quest on Jeff!

Namaste and many blessings!***

choose a lane, like choose a lane and be happy with your choice because you chose it!

you might not even realize at first that you’ve chosen a path of joy!

I wish I had a photo of my toll booth dude but I don’t.

A couple days ago, my family and I were driving and came to a toll booth.  I chose a lane and then proceeded to watch the cars in the lane next to me fly by.  What?!  I knew it was hit and miss when you choose a lane with an RV but, you know, they count as like 3 cars!  So, I watched as the RV didn’t move and remained there and remained there, so I figured he wasn’t expecting the toll booth and didn’t have his money ready quickly.  And, then he was still there.  So, I figured, maybe he’s asking for directions….and then he was still there…what!!?  C’mon!  Let’s get going!  How did I choose the wrong line?  (–because we all know that’s not possible–there are no wrong choices.  So, fine. I’ll wait and be patient-umm-ish)  And each car slooooowly went through.

And then when the car in front of me pulled up, I could see this 20?-something-year-old dude with long black hair and gold chains rockin’ out!   “Oh!  I immediately thought, I choose joy!  I chose the joyful line!”  And when I got up next to him, I looked at him rockin’ out and said to him, “Right on!” and he put his fist out and I fist bumped him and exploded mine and started to drive forward, conscious of everyone waiting behind me…and he said “wait, one more time!” and put his fist out but I’d already started driving forward and I said, “sorry!”—so here’s a fist bump for you, happy dude!  And “Thanks!”

Blessings!***

Get ready to get your bliss on with free meditations!

Deepak Chopra and Oprah have another *FREE* 21-day meditation series starting March 16, 2015.  Umm…how could you not want to participate in a free meditation series called “Manifesting True Success”?!?  Consider signing up even if you only do a few of them.  And if you are reading this after the 16th, you can usually still sign up for a few days after so give it a try.  (There’s even an example of a whole 21-minute meditation from a previous series when you go to sign up that you can listen to right now.)

“The only bad meditation is the one you didn’t do.” (I can’t remember who said this)

Namaste and many blissful meditation blessings to you!***

process painting or improv painting

so fun!  I just took a class from an amazing teacher last week.  I had taken classes from her before years ago but she hadn’t offered any classes for a while, so when she did, I jumped at the opportunity.  It’s a style of painting called “improv painting” or “process painting” which allows you to just pick a color and paint without planning ahead what you want to do–no judgment, just paint.  I loved when the teacher said that we were supposed to focus on where our paintbrush touched the paper because that was where the creative process was and when you think you’re done with a painting you ask yourself, if I had one more stroke to do on this painting what would I do and where would I put it and then do it and you don’t stop painting you just keep putting paint on–no thinking or pondering.  It’s based on a book called “Life, Paint, and Passion:  Reclaiming the Magic of Spontaneous Expression” by Michele Cassou and Stewart Cubley.  The first and most colorful painting I spent almost all of the time on and the second painting I spent what time I had left.  Fun, colorful, whimsical!!

Blessings***
