When was the last time you said these words to the special people in your life?

A few weeks ago I was vacationing in Florida with friends and doing something I love…walking the beach early in the morning and watching the sunrise…Absolutely beautiful! I ‘m always in awe of God’s miracles…one being the sun that rises and sets everyday regardless of whatever else might be going in the world!

Being so early in the morning the sand was smooth with tiny colorful seashells dispersed here and there. To me it was a canvas waiting to be used…

I wrote  Love You to share with the special people in my life….the first recipient of my art for the heart was  sent to my 12-year-old granddaughter, then I sort of forgot it until hours later I got a text message from her that said “this is beautiful, it’s my new wall paper!” For a soon to be teenager to appreciate that really made my day!

Looking back on that I think of how we so often forget the little things we can do that bring a smile to those we care about.

While technology has made our world much wiser, smaller and busier, it has distanced our connections in other ways.

Remember that technology can’t give love, support,comfort, laughter and all the little things that bring joy to your heart.

 

Anyway that’s what I think! What are your thoughts?

You are the script writer for the movie of your life!

How is it going so far? Is there anything you would like to change? Is there another direction you want it to take?

The great thing is that since YoU are incharge and responsible for your life YoU have the power to change the script! Sometimes we know that we need to change it but F.E.A.R. False Expectations Appearing Real gets in the way and puts us in freeze mode.

Feel the fear but do it anyway! (the name of a great book I read years ago) Take little steps…like testing the pool water before you plunging in for a swim.

You‘ll find that the more you do the more confident you get …the more confident you get the more you will do!

Each day you get a little older and the reality is that no one gets out of this world alive! So…do you want to live it with purpose and passion or just exist? Do you want to be extraordinary or ordinary?

Are you going nurture and use the talents and gifts God gave you or let them die from starvation?

Yes! Life is a challenge but nothing worth having or doing comes easy, so armour yourself with faith in your higher power, confidence in yourself and  supportive people then fasten your seat belt and be ready for the ride!

Your script…Your movie!  5..4..3..2..1.. Roll it!
