Day 148 – Find Your Place To Shine!

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Forty Eight

I LOVE American Idol – how can you not?

In fact I love all reality t.v. that is based on the premise of giving ordinary people a chance to become stars and live a life of their passions! (not such a big fan of the Fear Factor type)

What is your dream – where do you shine?

If you know – then go for it – as hard and as strong as you possibly can – every day. If you don’t know where that place is – then just think about what you do that gives you the biggest amount of happiness and exhilaration. Stop the negative self talk and – go for it – as hard and as strong as you possibly can – every day.

For some of us – the idea of “as hard and as strong as you possibly can” means that you took one step. It does not matter how small. Don’t let the pain stop you. I know that doesn’t seem possible some days but if you take one step no matter how small or seemingly inconsequential – then it’s a step closer than you were yesterday. Don’t let AS stop your dreams – they may look a bit different than you thought they would before you got diagnosed – so change the tempo! As we can see on American Idol… living life to your own beat can sometimes lead to genius and stardom. ¬†Find your place to shine and you’ll have no regrets!

Until tomorrow.

    Well said, Jenna! Sometimes those small steps are called baby steps, I like to call them turtle steps! I once heard Martha Beck refer to them that way and it just seems more fun!
