Is it too late to Be on time?

Have you ever had an idea that spoke to you in a way that was extra ordinary?  You know the kind of idea that is just crazy enough that you say you can't do it but exciting enough that it makes you want to try.  You think about it, you may even take a few steps forward until you hit your point of discomfort. When the moment comes where you have to move beyond the borders of easy, when effort is required to take your idea from the imagined to the manifest, will you do it?

What happens if you let off the gas for even a minute?  It can slow you down, you can get stuck and before you know it... you are too late! Are you too late to be on time to share your divine inspiration with the world?

I missed the boat many times on many ideas. I would get mad or jealous if I saw another succeeding where I choose to stop.  I let me fears hold me back, they moved forward- they got to their destination on time, me... I was always late.

But then one day I got it... I should not be jealous or even frustrated, I should be so happy for another who has succeeded where I had yet to.  I was the one who choose to slow down, not them.  They are proof positive that there is a place for such extra ordinary ideas in the world.  I am now so thankful for every idea I see out in the world that is similar to something that has inspired me.  Each idea, each inspired thought brought to life reminds me to stay on track, to BE on time and to share the inspiration that comes to and moves through me in hopes that it is somehow doing the same for another.

What about YOU???  Have you been late in sharing your gifts, talents or inspired ideas???  Are you ready to be on time???  The world is waiting for the amazing YOU.

Be. Brave

Well, I can't believe that I am saying this but... My first book is finally for sale on amazon.  This is a big deal because the process of writing began almost 3 years ago.  It has been a real journey of self.  I have moved through many moments of fear, worry, concern and self doubt.  I have faced it all head on. I rested when I needed to rest, I forged ahead when it was time to move ahead.  I always believed even when I doubted, the voice within would still speak louder than the silly voice of fear.  This book has been a reminder to LIVE your DREAM for it has been the vehicle that has allowed by to actualize mine.

Be authentically YOU... yes, BE who you ARE and who you are here to be.  I lived my own message throughout this process.  I doubted time and again who I was and it wasn't until I fully embraced ME when the full message finally came through out of my head and heart and onto paper.

So if you have ever thought of writing a book, climbing a mountain, falling in love, speaking your truth, doing something that scares the hell out of you- this is my call to YOU to go do it!  Be Brave, you have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain!  As you are out there, doing what is in your heart...notice how you are BEing when you are really doing all that excites, inspires and allows you to grow beyond where you have been so that you may more fully experience all that you are here to BE~

From my heart to yours~
