I hope that January has been treating you well. I send out prayers for healing and hope to everyone affected by the earthquake in Haiti. Amongst the tragedy, it is heart warming to see people in the world band together to help everyone there. There is a lot of love in the world. It is good to focus on the good in people.
I've been thinking a lot about creating opportunities for ourselves, acknowledging open doors, as well as acknowledging our own potential. It seems easiest to keep our dreams as dreams instead of bringing them into reality. We convince ourselves of 'reasons' why its impossible or why there are too many obstacles in our way. These are excuses- fear. I'm familiar with this- I do it myself with my photography and writing. I wonder what the true fear is? Of potential failure? Maybe even of the success? Hmmm..... Wayne Dyer has a book out called "Excuses No More". I watched the PBS special about it and would like to get my hands on a copy of the book. I know already it will be wonderful so I will go ahead and recommend it. The biggest thing that "hit me" from watching him speak on tv on this matter was when he said that money should never prevent us from fulfilling our dreams, our mission/purpose in life. What a big statement. I grew up surrounded by people and the belief that would instantly react to that statement with "But... without money you can't do this.. or... but I can't afford this or that". What a much more wonderful, appealing way of thinking that ..whatever is meant to come is on it's way and that the universe if filled with unlimited possibilities and unlimited abundance for all of us.
Every journey begins with one step, the second step and so on... SO I updated another website of mine www.pamelamichellephotography.com as one of my first steps. I think it may be time for me to open a door or two for myself.
Is there something that you have been dreaming about that you have been putting off? Give yourself a beautiful gift today and take the first step, however big or small, and see how it feels. Be fearless! :)
Thoughts for today...
Well this is officially my first "blog" entry. It looks like on this site builder the blog is a branch off of one of the main menu links- so I hope people find it! I guess if you are reading this, then you were one of the successful people to discover the blog.
I used to have a site called liveinlovexpressions and then one called radiatelove.net I was starting to miss having my own space where I could share my thoughts, ideas, and the wisdom of others that I found helpful in my life (ie Wayne Dyer, Marrianne Williamson, Doreen Virtue..etc). So, I decided to start a new website! Here it is :) It's in a 'newborn' stage so to speak. I haven't fully made up my mind as to what all will be included n the site, so I've started with the basics. I hope that people will come back from time to time and check it out.
Anyways, here we are in a new year and a new decade! 2010! :) feel positive energy when I think about the year ahead. I think there will be a lot of changes going on but they won't be as chaotic as they have in past years. Hopefully! lol I think it's been a bit crazy lately and we may have been 'forced' into changes that were necessary but we may have been fighting them off. Sometimes it felt like we were all being "shooken up", so to speak. Now, I believe that those who learnt some lessons along the way will have more control over what will happen and there will be some exciting changes as a result. Yay!
So, here's to letting go of everything that has been draining us or dragging us down, giving thanks for the amazing things that life has to offer, & embracing our power and beauty!! )
All is well in the world.
"We are perfect, whole, and complete as we were created."
Welcome, again to the "creation" of my new website. This is the first day of the rest of our lives! Get out there and enjoy it!
You'll find here some of my thoughts, observations, readings, etc... Feel free to leave comments! :)
