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.
