D is the letter of the day....
D is for Dang It! because I "woke up thinking" at 1:14 am....but what I was thinking about...was the word
I inherited his artistic abilities, (thank you very much) his digestive tract (not thanking you so much for that) and his ding-dong-ness (aren't we all lucky!!) but much more important are the lessons he has taught me about DESIRE when it comes to life. He has told me over....and over.....and over.....that it is a MUST, that you have DESIRE, if you want to succeed....in anything.
but my problem has always been that I DESIRE all kinds of things & and have not focused on them individually. I mostly just did this, that & the other and dilly-dallyed around...almost like playing 52 card pick-up with everything I did because I simply did not know what I wanted.
I am starting to talk in circles now...but you all have been readers for long enough to understand me!
I am going to be 40 in a few months. (yes mom...you are 29 with a 40 year old!)...and I am thinking alot about "what's next"....Creatively, in my life. I mentioned a few days back that I am a "fork" in the road....
anyways...The one thing I do know, because of my FAITH...is that although I do not know exactly where I am heading in my Creative Journey, or in life....I do know that I am headed in the right direction (which is a very good way to feel)
and what does that have to do with turning 40???
well, simply because I made my very first project the first day I was born. The nurse stamped my tiny toes in ink and stamped them on a certificate and that was the first day of the rest of my Creative Life...and after 40 years, I think that is the right direction.
with that said...
My world o' the year is PURPOSE...which I think looks fabulous with the word DESIRE next to it. Add in a little BREATHE, FOCUS and PRAY...
and the sky is the limit...
so today...I am no longer making "To-Do" list's in anything I do...today, I am starting a "Do Something" list....and it has to start with DESIRE.
are you with me?
did this post make you feel like this????
