Dance like no one is watching
Sing like no one's listening
Love like you've never been hurt
Sew that wardrobe you long for
Live life with urgency...
We are so afraid of really living it's no wonder we really feel a loss when someone famous dies.
2016 Celebrities who died...
Zsa Zsa Gabor
...The first song we really danced to
...The first movie we really connected with
...The comedian who really made us laugh...
Our youth was filled with promise and hope
Fast forward our icons are dying... they have lived...No doubt about it.
What are we waiting for? We like them will leave this Earth. This is a fact.
Fear stops us from living
....and judgement from others!
They wouldn't like it.
Do you know why they wouldn't like it?
Because you have moved forward and now they feel like they haven't lived.
Forget about them
Focus instead on your journey. Say Yes to you!
Do what you were put on this earth to do
Let others work out what they need to do
Let us get to the end of our journey knowing we did what we could with what we had in our hand. We were passionate, energetic and persistent. We gave life our all...With a few flat spots inbetween to regain our energy.
Don't put your life on hold waiting for permission to live your dreams. If you need to wait, work on something that moves you closer.
There will always be a reason or an excuse to Not do something... Always. Fight average and be the incredible person you are. Live life no matter the constraints. Love life anyway.
Then when someone famous dies we can say, "Look at what they did! They did the best with what time and gifts they were given!" They may have slipped up along the way..who hasn't? Be willing to work towards your dreams. Time is fleeting. Don't wait.
Make 2017 the year you moved forward.
Then...At the end
Well done good and faithful daughter/son..you used the resources you were given, persisted and didn't give up. Success isn't measured on arriving at the destination but your journey to the destination.
Run, don't walk in 2017, or a slow jog if you have to.
