This piece below is dated November 9, 2009,  just 10 days after my mom's death.  I knew in the wake of her death that my time here on earth would end one day too so what do I want my legacy to be?  It continues to speak to me and reminds me that the human experience is the great leveler - we all find our selves in the cage of our own making, we find our selves in circumstances that absolutely suck AND we find a way to channel our inner hero and LIVE! in spite of it all.  I am in awe of my hero's walk and the walk of all the heroes sharing this earthly journey with me.

Note to Self:  LIVE Your Life!

Life is a walk of freedom!  We must honor our Self in all our choices no matter what others might think or how they might react.  It is my hope that we may all be inspired to live our life fully – on our terms- and bestow our precious gifts on this world as long as this life lasts.  True courage is allowing our Self to be guided by our internal compass, our essence instead of being part of the cattle being herded along under the cultural spell that dictates truth and beauty from a warped filter.  Living from this place that is untouched by the outside world, we show others the way home to their truest Self.

The courageous must endure ridicule, betrayal and obstacles as we walk our path.  Each test screams, “How much do you want to live the life you came here to live?  How much do you want to be true to you?”  We must stand in whatever comes, trusting life (our Self); and understanding that the only true betrayal is the betrayal of the Self.  Choice by choice, day by day, moment by moment, we make our way not looking to be perfect or right – we are far too wise for this nonsense that drains us of life!  We simply seek the adventure that is life so we are present to all that comes in the seemingly ordinary moments. 

Live!  Live imperfectly.  Live crazily.  Live happily.  Live gratefully.  Live mishappily.  Live joyously.  Live passionately.  Live authentically.  Live!  Just live your life and don’t look back.  Don’t stop to explain or justify or apologize.  Forgive yourself!  Be willing to give all you came here to give so you can share the PASSION within.  Be kind to yourself and everyone.  Stop spinning shoulda’, coulda’, woulda’, which keeps us stuck in the past as life is too precious – we are too precious for this.  Just be who you are.  Know that you are enough as you are!  You are.  Let life unfold you!  YES!  This is living…

WRITE A NOTE TO YOUR SELF...let it rip! xo
