*Thanks to my mother-in-law Diana for the Wise and Witty Stress Solution kit that includes a deck of cards from Loretta LaRoche*.
I pulled this card the other day, just before heading out to watch my friend Lisa Robbin Young sing her heart out.
“Let passion inflame you. How often do you get excited about something? So excited that it feels as if every cell in your body is yelling, WOW!! We all need this kind of juice flowing through our veins so that we don’t end up looking like old prunes. Don’t just dream about what you’d love to do…do it! Remember that life is a buffet, and you don’t want to leave the table with only a stalk of celery on your plate.”
The energy was electric that day of the concert! Actually, I think “magnetic” would be a better word for it. Those of us lucky enough to experience this show up-close and personal, were inundated with the waves of love and passion flowing out from Lisa Robbin Young.
Like a moth to a flame, I was drawn in to watching her live out her dream, excited for her and at the same time kind of jealous because it reminded me of my dream to get up on a stage and share my story and my ideas. Although admitting that I want to be on a stage feels a bit new and scary, that’s one of the best things I got out of watching this show. My passion to talk about Adjusting your Attitude and Feeding Your Soul got a mega-boost of energy from watching Lisa! In fact, all of us watching the show that day got to experience first-hand how sharing your passion stirs up the passions in the people around you. Even during the awkward parts. Even when things go a little side-ways, the right people can see beyond the occasional mistake because they’re tuned in to the passion, not the problems. Your dreams want to come through you! They want to help you live your life with purpose and excitement! And the people who want what you have to offer don’t care if it’s perfect. They want to experience that passion with you as they watch you develop your dream! That’s what love can do!
As you head out into the world today, my friendly blog reader, think about how much more fun your life can be when you follow your dreams.
What’s on your plate today?
