SETTING A COURSE FOR ADVENTURE!

To live one's life, is to live it without worrying about roles, rules and other people's expectations.  Other people's fears and limitations can keep us stuck and mired in bullshit.  Just because they can't or won't doesn't mean you can't or don't.  Sometimes you have to leave people by the side of the rode and keep it moving.

The moment you accept "this" as all there is, is the moment you have joined the Club of Settle.  Where you are scorned for wanting to live another kind of way.  To some it may seem like you're being foolish.  Perhaps you are, by giving up a so-called good thing.  But I have learned that a good thing is only a good thing if you think so.  It can't be because someone else thinks so and you are just going along.  There is so much bullshit out there that if you don't listen to your own heart you will be lost in someone Else's life story.  

I am moving forward without a clear plan.  I rather like that.  Don't get me wrong, I am not standing around waiting for a house to fall on me.  I mean, I am not so rigid in my moving forward that I have to account for every bump and turn in the road.  What I am saying and doing is moving along with a sense of divine guidance.  Without fear and reservation.  There is magic in that.

I have always been one for an adventure.  I am in the mood for a real adventure...nothing harmful or crazy.  But a life that takes my breath away, fills me with joy and happiness and makes life thrilling to be in!

TOMORROW I SET A COURSE FOR ADVENTURE!  Chasing everyday with gusto and vigor!  Me and my kids taking on the world.

VALENTINE'S DAY EVE

Valentine's Day is one of my FAVORITE holidays!  A day devoted to LOVE LOVE LOVE!  Yes, I know all the anti-lovers are whining about the commercialism of the holiday, the expense, the running around for gifts, candy and of course flowers.  I ignore THOSE folks because as Hallmark expresses in their new campaign...It's a day not to celebrate you, but a day to say I love US.  BEAUTIFUL!

Seriously, aside from all the forced romantic overkill, love has its place and although many us express our love for one another everyday I wanted to share my favorite defining verse on the subject.  Believe me it doesn't get any better than Corinthians 13: 1-13.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 -
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.


Happy Valentine's Day!
