My Guilty pleasure

Halong BayOk, I’ll admit it, I watch American Idol… There, I said it. I don’t watch much TV, I’d rather spend the time living my own life, but I love seeing people go after their dreams, I love seeing lives changed, and I love the inspiration it brings to others. It’s not just about singing, or entertainment, it’s about passion, making things happen, and taking risks.

Don’t waste precious time being afraid. Without the risk, all you’ll have is more of the same. Be wise in your decisions, but don’t stand in your own way. Trust in yourself and trust that as you take steps to move closer to living your dream, new doors will open – but you have to take action. You have to keep moving.

What is it that you’re working toward? What can you do today to take one step that will get you closer? It could be as simple as making a call, sending an email, practicing a little longer, introducing yourself to someone new.  Each step doesn’t have to be monumental; you just need to keep taking the steps.

Go out there, follow your passion. I’d love to hear what baby step you took today…

  1. Today I’m concentrating on joy. Not the joy that comes from without, but the joy that wells up in me from inside. The sun is shining, which makes it easier. 🙂

    I so agree about the baby steps. Even taken one at a time, baby steps will eventually get you where you want to go. We also need to give ourselves credit for each of those steps, and to be kind to ourselves. I’m so pleased to “meet” another person who has chosen to be a positive force in the world!

    • Melody, Thank you for your kind words – likewise, happy to meet a kindred spirit. Being kind to ourselves is such a great reminder, if we wouldn’t speak to or treat our friends in a certain way, why do we do it to ourselves? Thanks for spreading your joy today! 😉

  2. i also do not watch much TV. i like what you have said in your post on following our passion. In life, we do need to do what can make us happy, it makes us more comfortable..

  3. Thanks for stopping by, it looks like you’re definitely living your life doing the things that make you happy, love it!
