~ I Am Who I Am Today ~

When desirous of a life change, or any kind of a change, it's wiser to start from a place like: "I am who I am today, where I am today, because this was my choice and it has served me well. However, it no longer serves me, my choices have changed, and I give thanks for the amazing changes that now sweep through my amazing life."

Rather than, "I don't know how I got here. I hate this. I must be sabotaging my own progress. I just won't accept things as they are any more. I'm desperate for a change. By this time next year my life will totally rock!"

OK?? You don't even have to remember the choices that led you to the day, but by understanding you made them, the kingdom, the power, and the glory knowingly become yours.

Choose Me

Very often when you just can't decide between two or more options, it's because the answer that would most give you peace, is actually, "None of the above."
But not always.

~ happily, it was really, really easy for me when I chose you

At Your Service

First, as a child, it seems like the entire world is there for you and you rush to drink from its every cup, sometimes wondering to yourself how anything could ever be more fun.
Then, as you grow older, if you're observant, you realize much of what you enjoy was made possible by the contributions, work, and labor of those who came before you, and you're taken aback, disappointed even , because with maturity you can now see cracks in the fa├žades, imperfections in the details, and 10,000 ways it could have all been done better.
At which point, folks typically choose one of two paths: Spend a lifetime lamenting how far from perfect things are. Or, to one degree or another, roll up their sleeves and pitch in. And should they choose the latter with gusto, they will come to know, to the core of their sacred being, that the differences they might make in the world cannot be made by another. And then they will discover the answer to their often-wondered childhood question.... That the most fun one can have in time and space comes from making such a difference, and that the joy derived from serving is 10,000 times that of being served.

Oh no, this doesn't mean life becomes all work and no play. It just means work becomes play, no matter what you do, and play becomes ecstasy.

~ My Wishes ~

I’d like to go forward in time to see first hand futuristic cities soar into the skies, all crystalline and made of polished metal. Ideally, I’d like to be roused on a hammock on a tropical beach, where the sand is powder-white and the sea the deepest sapphire-blue, but almost immediately I’d have to dress, go out and attend a secret espionage meeting; If I thought about it, I really need a big case of cash. No questions asked, and sometimes I wish I was the best patisserie chef since Anton Careme invented caramel. I’d like to have a power to cast spells, binding and real spells, and it would be amazing to hang out on an island of my own in some far-off tropical sea, one never touched by human contact. Pets? I’d like to have a penguin, so brave and resourceful, and yet so funny at the same time. Finally, I’d like to throw a beach party where the limbo is optional, and maybe I’d invite an angel along, to bring a blessing on everyone there.
